Spring Junior Swing Classes
For the 2014 season we have revamped the junior spring swing classes to make them available to a wider range of juniors and families. As opposed to 2 classes spread out over 4 weeks like last year’s program, for 2013 each weekend has been separated into its own individual junior class, giving us a total of 5 class options throughout the spring. While it isn’t mandatory to participate every weekend, we encourage everyone to sign up for more than 1 weekend! Why? We are trying to instill in the juniors that the golf club is a place to come and have fun, the more time that they spend at the course doing so, the more this mantra will be re-enforced.
Aside from increasing the number of classes, we have also made alterations to the age categories to which classes will be offered this season, with the newest addition being the 4-6 year old age category. We can now offer lessons to boys and girls who are brand new to the game, starting them off on the right foot for a lifetime of enjoyment from the game of golf. The second age category has been revamped to a 7-12 year old age category, where students will receive a slight bit greater information and focus on golfing technique than the youngest class.
The most drastic change to the junior program however has been with the introduction of SNAG golf products to enable our young students to A) have more fun B) more easily observe results and improvements in performance C) learn technical skills while accomplishing A&B. What is SNAG? It stands for “Starting New At Golf”, and is a user friendly system that is easy to learn and can be played anywhere. It combines elements of mini golf and real golf to provide the best learning environment possible for junior golfers. To learn more about SNAG, visit www.Snagcanada.com.
