We are running a junior program at The Back Nine Club and would like to inform you of the opportunity. The summer series is an 8 week program designed to introduce juniors to the game of golf. Also, to develop those with prior playing experience into better players.
The class runs every Monday beginning June 26th and is open to all juniors ages 6-16.
Classes are scheduled to run every Monday from the start on the 26th of June up until the 21st of August. We also have a family day/cookout on the 28th of August. No classes will be held the week of July 4th.
Sessions run from 9 am-10 am for ages 6-9. At this stage we focus on introducing them to the game. Fundamentals are introduced such as grip stance and posture. Drills and games are mostly played and used to relate the fundamentals, and incorporate fun.
10:30am-12:00am ages 10+ we also introduce the game with fundamentals. The range of experience in this group varies so we plan accordingly ensuring everyone learns at an appropriate stage. This group typically has the basic knowledge of the game understood. We get into much greater detail with the mechanics and use competition as a way for them to learn but enjoy the time with they’re peers.
In the years past we’ve really focused on not leaving any kids out, especially seeing as it’s an individual sport. The teaching methods we use and plans we go by consist of team games and interactions with other golfers.
