2018 JUNIOR ACADEMY
The Mission of the Junior Golf Academy
We take pride in providing a professional, fun and friendly environment for the junior golfer to discover the game through private lessons, camps and group programs.
Reasons your child should play golf:
1. Teachings of the game of golf
The game of golf has at its very core a standard of behavior that lends itself to positive development, teaching our children to be responsible individuals. Honesty, integrity, courtesy, sportsmanship and respect are all present in golf.
2. Exercise and Fitness
It is estimated that 20 to 30 percent of children are overweight. Golf is a great low impact way to develop the cardio activity, core stability, balance, and mental focus that is necessary to function effectively from day to day and reduce the risk of health concerns.
3. Family time
Golf is a game that families can learn and play together. When was the last time you played tackle football with your son or soccer with your daughter? Golf is that game that can be enjoyed by everyone together for years. Junior golf programs can help a parent instill the love of the game and build lasting family memories.
4. Golf as a summer sport
Getting the kids on the golf course gives them something safe and productive to do during the summer. Video games are great in winter when it is cold and snowy outside. But, golf is great for getting them outside in the nicer weather. They can go for lessons, play on the course during the day and go to the driving range as well. Furthermore, many friendships can begin at a junior golf program. There is something to giving your child the opportunity to socialize.
