Junior Golf Academy
Please check out our new Facebook page devoted entirely to the
Saratoga Spa Golf Academy and junior golf.
Mission: To impact the lives of young people by providing opportunities to learn and develop skills that will enhance everyday life through the game of golf.
Overview: Our instructional programs are designed in a way that will present learning the game of golf as a fun and exciting challenge to our juniors. Students will learn basic golf swing fundamentals, short game fundamentals (putting & chipping), game playing strategies, and knowledge about rules and etiquette. It is very important that our students have fun while learning the game of golf. A series of games and challenge activities are incorporated into almost all of our programs. Our goal is to provide quality golf instruction in a safe, fun, and exciting learning environment.
Equipment: We will provide equipment for any students that are in need at no charge. For those families that wish to purchase any golf equipment in our golf shop, please contact one of our golf professionals to have your child properly fitted. Please do not allow ill-fitting clubs to impede your child’s progress. Adult golf clubs that have been cut down are too heavy and much too stiff for a child.
Dress Code: We ask all juniors participating in our programs dress in a golf appropriate manner. This includes a collared shirt and casual pants or shorts. Jeans, cut offs, tee shirts, tank tops, warm up suits, and swimwear will not be allowed. Please have shirts tucked in and all hats must be worn forwards.
