Program Focus

Depending upon the facility your junior can be offered one of the following programs and while they both follow the same pattern the pace, requirements, and expectation for the training and testing is different. To do this we offer two programs. One program forces long term on a young student who's growing their love and experience of the game of golf. The other program focuses on young golfers whom are proficient and want to increase their mastery of the game. Learn more about the programs below!
