Developing Juniors is our passion.

Creating a Fun learning environment is the focus of all our player development programming. From our youngest beginners through to our elite juniors coaches emphasize longterm skill development over technique to improve performance. Golf is a game to be played and as such giving juniors the tools to score consistently well is vital. Utilizing the Operation 36 principles juniors learn to score par from 25yds then progress back in distance as skill acquisition increases. The scoring centric approach allows juniors to develop their own unique technique which will aid them in consistently shooting lower scores.

Once baseline testing is completed the instructor will develop a pattern and practice plan to accomplish the students desired outcome. This process requires a minimum of two hours to complete. Clients are encouraged to select that half and full day evaluation which includes a short game and nine hole playing assessment following the baseline testing.Once a student has completed their evaluation hourly coaching is available by appointment through the online scheduler on our site.
