Junior Leagues

Our 2020 junior leagues are open to junior golfers from ages 8-14.

The 2020 junior leagues start in March and run through August. This year’s leagues include:

  • Spring Junior Development League (beginner to intermediate)
  • Summer Junior League (intermediate)

Details

The Spring Junior Development League will focus strictly on playing the golf course, and learning the rules and etiquette involved. The league will cover some instruction, but each week the players will be practicing on the course dealing with real golf situations. Each week, our lessons will take place on the golf course learning about all the areas on the course, hitting shots from different lies and the on-course challenges they will face.

By the end of the program, the golfer’s goal is to confidently play an entire hole from start to finish. This program is ideal for beginner and intermediate golfers looking to be introduced to the game and become familiar with the golf course. This league is a perfect transition program towards the junior summer golf league.

Dates

March 31

April 1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22, 28 & 29
