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 at Red Arrow 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 – 8:30-9:40
  • GROUP B: Ages 7-9 – 10:00-11:10
  • GROUP C: Ages 10-12 – 11:30-12:40
    * note that times and age groups are subject to change

Cost: $70 before June 10, $80 after June 10, includes all 7 sessions

Instructional sessions will be powered by The First Tee LINK and incorporate the 9 Core Values of Respect, Courtesy, Responsibility, Honesty, Sportsmanship, Confidence, Judgment, Perseverance, and Integrity as well as the 9 Healthy Habits of Energy, Play, Safety, Vision, Mind, Family, Friends, School, and Community.  Activity based learning will help each child master golf skills while improving important life skills.

Each participant will also receive a membership to Red Arrow Golf Course to play golf, foot golf, or disc golf all summer.

And finally, each participant who enters before June 10 will also become Youth On Course members and Golf Association of Michigan members.


*Special note about pricing for this age group: While the registration fee includes all 7 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.
