ELITE JR. MEMBERSHIP FOR AGES 11+
Our unique Elite Jr. Membership program is designed for competitive golfers ages 11 and up. Our curriculum is focused on teaching, coaching, and playing for maximum fun and development. This is the perfect setting for juniors looking to be the best they can be. A high level of commitment is expected of these players as we work on building their skill set, improving their fundamentals, working on routines, and teaching them how to think for themselves to make appropriate decisions on and off the golf course.
We pride ourselves in injecting fun into our private sessions and group practices. Golf is meant to be fun. There are many distinct skills involved in the game of golf that are a blast to teach and learn, and these will be introduced to players at appropriate times in order to further their development.
The Elite Jr. Membership is centered on individual lessons so each junior receives set time for individual improvement. With golf involving so many different possibilities and routes to success, it's imperative that these juniors trust and believe in their respective coach.
We believe in taking what each junior does well and incorporate expert feedback and keys to help them grow. Just because a swing may be different does not mean it is not effective. There are certain uniformed principles we adhere to when teaching these competitive players. Less is more as these juniors need to ultimately be their own coach. We hope you'll join us in helping your junior achieve their loftiest goals with the game!
(3) HRS. of PRIVATE INSTRUCTION PER MONTH
Our Elite program includes private lessons to help guide each junior in recognizing strengths, improving certain weaknesses, and teaching them how to play on the golf course. We keep information simple and consistent to determine what works best for each junior, what keys to focus on to keep them there, while helping them shave strokes based on found weaknesses on the course.
PLAYING LESSONS (JUNE & JULY)
Small group playing lessons are given once a week during the Summer months. We discuss the process of picking the right club for each shot (taking into account lie, wind, and course conditions while helping them make the lowest score possible. Juniors need to play golf, not golf swing, and our playing lessons are designed to help them do just that.
WEEKLY OPEN PRACTICES (November-March)
These juniors receive 4 hours per week of open practice to work on specific drills, compete with their peers, receive expert feedback, ask questions, and practice in a fun, safe environment. These practices are meant to help each junior become self-sufficient and self-regulate, so they can rely on themselves when the pressure is on.
The book now link allows you to sign up for small group teaching, private lessons, and weekly open practices from the comfort of your phone. Don't let that phone run your life though.
(1) TOURNAMENT OBSERVATION
Each coach will watch their player compete in a tournament or match in 2021. In order to understand where each junior is wasting shots, we need to see them make decisions and play under pressure. This will help guide our teaching and ability to relate to each student.
STAT TRACKING & ANALYSIS
Students will be expected to keep stats during appropriate events that'll help us as coaches plan our sessions in a more effective manner. Learning how to lower each junior's scores will come from this shared information.
WEEKLY & MONTHLY PLANNING
Our job consists of working on the right things at the right time. To do that, we take notes on each student to better plan our teaching sessions. Notes are shared with each student so they can prepare properly.
(1) PLAYER/PARENT/COACH MEETING
In order to keep lines of communication open, stay on the same page, and to ensure the junior's wants and needs are put first, we will meet to discuss goals, concerns, and plans.
Our too good to be true Spring, Summer PGA Jr., and Fall Ryder Cup leagues are included in the program. Leagues take place April-September at Pebble Brook Golf Club.
PEBBLE BROOK JR. MEMBERSHIP & RANGE PASS
We found it vitally important to include a junior golf membership and unlimited range balls in our program that allows plenty of free play for junior golfers. It's a great chance for each junior to play more golf, make new friends, and explore the game of a lifetime.
Jr. Membership Restrictions:
M-TH - Play Anytime
Fri.-Su. & Holidays - Play after 2pm
FREE CLUB FITTING
What good is a program if you are not advised on which clubs to buy for your junior? Any junior participant receives (1) free club fitting from Mark Mathews, our Master Club Fitter. Mark will meet with you and your junior personally to come up with a plan that best suits your needs.
