Junior Golf Player Development Programs
Every winter we reevaluate our program to make sure that things can't be done even better. As part of that process, we have improved our program to offer more opportunities for junior players of all ability and experience levels. Additionally, we are excited to announce that we have added a second PGA Professional to our teaching staff, Mr. Don DuChateau. Don brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our staff. Finally, for our younger and less experienced juniors, we have purchased SNAG Golf equipment. This will be a major upgrade and I am confident the kids are going to love it! If you haven't heard of SNAG Golf, check out there website on the link.
