Junior Golf

Whether you’re looking to introduce a child to the game of golf for the first time or are seeking opportunities to further develop existing skills, we have a junior golf option for you. Our PGA Director of Instruction, Scott, has created year round programs for fun and learning about the game of golf. He has worked with some of the best junior players in the area. Joining him in instruction are Teaching Professionals, Sam Christiansen and Lauren Stockmoe. 

Each program will have five 1.5 hour sessions (with the exception of SNAG which is in one-hour sessions) that will cover all aspects of the golf swing while ensuring each golfer learns proper etiquette and safety while on the course. The program will go through five stages (Teach, Measure, Train, Train, and Test) while having an emphasis on the important aspects of the swing (Grip, Stance, Posture, Aim, and Tempo). Each session will have four to five different stations, keeping the student-to-coach ratio small. The stations will be a combination of full swing (irons and drivers), chipping, short and lag putting, and training and testing using Trackman and SAM Puttlab technology. 

Each junior golfer will have the opportunity to become Dirck Academy putting and/or full swing certified. These certifications will be completed using Trackman and SAM Puttlab technology to track and log each student's performance. Both putting and full certifications will have 3 different levels to complete and students will have all summer to work towards completing their certifications.

Winter 2022-2023 Programs are closed for registration.

2023 Summer Junior Golf Programs open for registration (with limited spots in each session).

2023 Fall Junior Golf Program and registration will be posted in August.
