Following this Sunday’s spring event, Galgorm Castle Junior Golf Academy will launch a brand new US Kid Golf Junior Coaching Programme.
US Kids Golf learning programmes promote the development of junior golf worldwide. The coaching techniques are specifically designed for younger golfers to ensure they get the best possible start in the game and provide a structured programme to develop further – all the while ensuring maximum fun!
The US Kids learning programme is a proven method to introduce golf to young players and the programmes have been used extensively across the US for the past 20 years. There are numerous levels of advancement, each one becoming progressively more difficult than the previous. Kids will receive instruction booklets (for both parents and golfers) for each level covering: putting, around the green, full swing, knowledge and scoring. The young golfers are tested at each level across the five skill areas before progressing to the next level.
Achievement pins are awarded to golfers when they attain competence at each level.
Monday 14th May will see the 6-8 year old group begin their programme (5pm – 6:30pm) with the 9 year olds and above beginning their programme on Friday 18th May (4:30pm – 6pm). The 8-week programmes cost £70.00pp. Classes are limited to 8 children per class.
