The students will be diving deeper into the fundamentals and exploring new techniques to take their game to the next level.

Classes are scheduled from April through October (Up to 9 classes per month) and juniors may purchase a 4 session pack or an 8 session pack that can be used at any point during the season.

Junior Scoring School

Discover the difference between teaching and coaching

Coaching takes a holistic approach to the game where the Coach gets to know and understand the student and through this relationship, guides the student towards their goal. To achieve this, commitment from both parties is required. This program is designed for current or aspiring high school or tournament golfers, or those juniors who simply want to develop the skills to take their game to the next level.

Junior Speed Training Program

Juniors need to hit certain speed windows (developmental ages to train speed) in order to maximize their potential for speed later in life. Once those windows are closed, it is more difficult to train speed. Juniors ages 5-17 will train to increase their club head speed using methods developed by SuperSpeed Golf and the Titleist Performance Institute.

Speed Windows:
Boys 7-9 and 13-16 years old
Girls 6-8 and 11-13 years old

Details TBA

Drive, Chip & Putt

A joint initiative founded in 2013 by the Masters Tournament, United States Golf Association and The PGA of America, the Drive, Chip and Putt Championship is a free nationwide junior golf development competition aimed at growing the game by focusing on the three fundamental skills employed in golf.
