Junior Golf Program Overview

Willow Crest Golf Club’s Junior Golf Program provides kids ages 7-12 the opportunity to learn the game of golf in a serious, yet fun learning environment. Junior golfers are exposed to the fundamental mechanics of the swing through various instruction methods, drills, games and more while also spending an ample amount of time playing out on the golf course. Safety and etiquette are instilled from the start and reviewed at each session. The practice station curriculum includes chipping, pitching, putting, bunker play, irons and driving. Participants are grouped according to ages, skill levels and personal requests whenever possible.
