Summer Intensives

This is an invitation-only program. Give us a call at (847) 850-0956 to schedule an evaluation!

The Summer Intensives program is designed for standout junior players, ages 10 – 14, who want to push their game and be with others who share a similar drive. Each week, students will at three different golf courses: Deerfield Golf Club, Sunset Valley Golf Course and Glenview Prairie Club. Under the “IMPORTANT” header on this page, there’s a brief explanation on what students will be doing at each site. This invitation-only program is for players who aspire to play at a high competitive level and have proven dedication to improvement. These golfers are well on their way toward understanding their abilities, and what it takes to achieve their individual goals.

The curriculum will consist of:

  • A private goal-setting session to identify both short- and long-term goals and golf-related aspirations.
  • Lessons in how students can effectively document their daily progress in order to organize their thoughts, practice routines, and hold themselves accountable.
  • Instructions on how to prepare for each golf session through a daily routine that includes dynamic physical and mental warmup exercises.
  • On-course tactical tournament training that focuses on teaching techniques for strategic planning, course management, decision-making, situational awareness, recovering from trouble, gaining confidence, and staying focused in the present moment.
  • Dedicated short-game instruction with a focus on building the student’s confidence and creative shot-making skills.
  • Detailed full-swing analysis to identify weaknesses and help explore potential adjustments.
  • Full-swing projects and personalized drills to provide students with efficient and effective practice methods.
  • Developing each student’s “personal par” and expectations for improvement.
  • Empowering the student’s ability to achieve their best, in the moments they will need it most.
