Junior Golf Instruction

Nicole with juniorsWhen coaching young people, the most important thing is to nurture a genuine love for the game. Children play golf for a variety of reasons. Some savor the thrill of competition while others simply enjoy a social round with friends or family. Recognizing these important differences, BirdieBound offers a variety of junior golf programs to best match the needs of children of all ages.

Private Junior Lessons

Private lessons are a great option for the more experienced or competitive junior golfers looking to develop a specific aspect of their game. They are also helpful for children who have difficulty focusing in a larger group setting or who simply prefer a one-on-one experience. Private lessons are available for children age 6 and up.

Junior Golf Academies

Develop proper golf fundamentals early! BirdieBound offers three Junior Golf Academies to children between the ages of 7 and 14.  Instruction includes full swing, putting, chipping, pitching, bunker play, golf rules, etiquette, and on-course play at Tallwood Country Club.

Pee Wee Pros

Pee Wee Pro's is an instructional program designed to introduce golf to young children 3-6 years of age. The primary objective is to instill a message that golf is fun and share with parents and care-givers how they can best support this objective. No golf equipment is necessary – we provide all children with SNAG golf equipment to use during the clinics. SNAG (Start New At Golf) equipment is designed to make learning golf easy. The clubs and balls are oversized and brightly colored to increase the likelihood that our Pee Wee Pro's will meet with success.
