Innovative Junior Program to start at Lady Bird!
Junior Golf Program
Ladybird Linksters Summer Golf Program is for Junior Golfers between 7-14 years old. This summer program will offer early level players golf instruction as well as an introduction to play through 8-weeks of practices and two 5 or 9 hole competitions. It will serve as a fun, less stressful approach to tournament golf, and provides junior golfers with knowledge and skills that set the stage for a lifetime of golf enjoyment.
Practices will be held twice weekly to accommodate summer schedules. Player’s are not required to attend both practices but may do so if they choose. Weekly instructional materials will be the same at both practices. Weekly practices will be:
June 18 – August 9
Wednesdays – 4:00-5:15 Saturdays – 10:00-11:15
The 2 competitions will be held on either Saturday or Sunday in the afternoon. The exact date and time will be announced at the beginning of the program once students have been set up in their respective teams/practice groups.
Participants should have minimal to no tournament experience. This program is designed as a stepping stone program for juniors wishing to learn and advance their golf skills into more competative tournament play such as STPGA Little Linksters, Junior Tour or High School Golf programs.
There will be a maximum of 24 juniors in the program.
Each team is comprised of 6-8 players that form 2-person teams. These 2-person teams compete in their respective co-ed divisions (7-10 and 11-14) in a true Scramble format. Each 2-person team will be awarded points based on how they finish in their respective division. Points earned in each division are then added together to create the Team’s overall point total. Awards are distributed based on overall Team point totals.
Program Costs for the Summer Program – $250
Costs include all practice sessions and tournament entry fees and prizes.
