How does one decide which program(s) to enter?

The KJGA is tournament-oriented, the Junior Golf Leagues are recreational, and the Junior Golf Clinics and Competition Camps are instructional. Finding the best program(s) is dependent on the ability of the junior: Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced.

  • Advanced or tournament players will fit best in the KJGA tournaments¬†or the Competition Camps.
  • Intermediate or recreational players will enjoy all programs.
  • Beginners should start with a Junior Golf Clinic or the Instructional program and then decide which program they would fit into best after the instruction. Private lessons are offered for all ages and ability levels.

Junior Instruction

The Instructional Group meets on Tuesday mornings throughout the summer. The first four sessions are at Grand Prairie Golf Course and focus on rules, etiquette, and instruction about the golf swing. These sessions are usually divided by age into 3 groups, but groups may change based on participation levels and ride-sharing requests. We will send an email one week before the first scheduled event with final group assignments. Older than 12 but new to golf? We will consider older, new junior golfers in Group C as space allows.

 

Estimated group times:

GROUP A: Ages 7 & under – 9:00-10:00
GROUP B: Ages 7-10 – 10:15-11:15
GROUP C: Ages 10-12 – 11:30-12:30
* note that times and age groups are subject to change

 

Each group is broken down further into 3 stations: putting, chipping, and full-swing. The next four sessions are spent playing on the course at Red Arrow Golf Club with the ages 8 & under group playing three holes and the 9-12 year olds playing six holes. Tee times will be assigned for these sessions and can range from 8:30-12:00. We will take tee time requests starting week 2 of instructional classes. The final Tuesday will be treated as a tournament with awards given to the top boy & girl finishers in each age group. Parents are encouraged to participate in all sessions for this age group, especially the Red Arrow sessions, where we would like to have at least one adult walk with each group. Parent volunteers are an important part of the success of this age group.

 

Cost: $60 before June 10, $70 after June 10, includes all 9 sessions

 

*Special note about pricing for this age group: While the registration fee includes all 9 sessions, we fully expect participants to miss 2-3 weeks for camps and/or vacations. There are no make up classes for when you miss, which is why we keep the pricing so low.
