We try and offer a variety of activities to introduce kids to golf and to help them become golfers. We have summer camps that are a good way to introduce a child to golf.
Weekly golf classes are a great way to learn golf. Over time we see children blossom into good golfers.
During the summer the flexibility of being out of school plus the longer days allows us to have more activities than we can have during the school year.
Classes will be putting, chipping, pitching, sand shots, and full swing. We will practice, learn, and discover the ABC’s of athleticism -agility, balance, and coordination. We will also spend a bit of time on rule, etiquette and playing golf. Registration information is below.
For 5-9 year olds
We meet on Wednesdays after school. Each class session meets for four weeks. During the four weeks, kids will learn about putting, chipping, pitching, and full swing. This is for kids who are beginners or who have a bit of experience, but are not considered advanced.
For 10-12 year olds
We meet on Thursday afternoons after school. Each session meets for four weeks. The kids will learn basic golf skills. The ciriculum is slightly different because the kids are older but the basics are the same. This class is for novice and beginner level kids.
Some kids have become more advanced and are ready for more golf course activities. If your child seems ready for the golf course and wants to improve those skills, this will be a good class.

- Does my child need clubs?
No. Clubs are not necessary. If your child has clubs , they should bring them. We have good clubs for them to use if they do not have clubs.
- What is it rains or class is canceled?
We will schedule a make up day and we will offer a prorated refund if you are unable to attend the make up day.
- What does my child need to wear and bring to class?
Athletic clothes are best for class. As it gets cooler, it is important to have a sweater, sweat shirt or jacket for class. Being cold is no fun. Golf shoes and golf specific clothing are not necessary. Flip flops, crocs, boots, etc are not good for golf. We have water at the Golf Academy but bringing a water bottle is fine. Its a good idea to write name or initials on anything that might get lost.
- What kind of clubs should I get for my child?
We believe that it is very important that kids learn to play with clubs that are the correct length and are very light. My opinion is that Golphin, US Kids Golf, EPEC, and Ping make the best clubs for kids to learn with.
