The Mariners Point Junior Golf Academy is a collaborative framework based on research and best practices from the golf industry's leading organizations – the PGA of America, U.S. Kids Golf, and Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA). The goal of the Academy is to introduce the game to youth and provide them with the resources to play golf socially or competitively based on each individual's desire. The foundation of the program is to make golf fun – first and foremost.
Private lessons are the best way to enhance your child's golf skills quickly. They will learn the game using a variety of teaching methods – a combination of verbal, kinesthetic and visual ques. A private lesson gives your child one-on-one attention with the instructor. A semi-private lesson can be customized to suit their needs as well.
Group lessons are designed to introduce the fundamentals of the game to juniors in a safe and fun environment. The goal is to provide a broad overview of how the game is played. At the same time, juniors will enjoy the social component of the game and learn about etiquette and sportsmanship. The goal is to make playing golf fun so students develop a lifetime love for the game
Junior Leagues focuses on improving ball striking while continuing to emphasize short game skills. Juniors will learn to apply their skills on the golf course effectively with the added component of score keeping and competition. They will improve on the ability to get the ball from the tee into the hole in a predetermined amount of strokes. They will learn to play by the rules and display good etiquette.
Summer Camps are designed to teach the beginning junior golfer everything they need to get started playing golf.
If you already play golf this is a great program to improve your skills and get on-course playing experience. Putting, chipping, and full swing instruction is part of the daily curriculum. Supplemental activities include stretching, balance, and motor skills development to assist you in becoming a well-round athlete!
