Boys and Girls GOLF CLUB was designed to give youth ages 7-17 an ongoing program that will help them develop their golf game and progress as a competitive athlete through a series of skill levels. Understanding the rules and etiquette of golf can be beneficial to their overall development by instilling a sense of value and pride.

Taught in a club atmosphere, the emphasis is to provide a safe place to learn, play and be healthy. Junior golfers learn that advancing their golf skills is a fun and exciting way to keep active in a social environment.

Our mission is to provide an outlet for youth to learn and grow with the game of golf over a period of time by focusing on age-appropriate skills that progressively gets more specialized as the athlete progresses. These levels are based on the Titleist Performance Institutes Junior Golf Curriculum.

The ultimate goal is to develop and guide college-bound golfers towards opportunities for golf scholarships offered by outside organizations.

Growing up with the game of golf can lead to a lifetime of fulfillment both on and off the course.
