Junior

Instruction

The Golf Academy is California’s #1 rated junior golf school, specializing in junior golf instruction for boys and girls of any age or ability level.

Summer Sessions

Whether your child is just starting, an accomplished player or somewhere in between, Summer Sessions are a fun way to learn the game with other junior golfers. Sign-up for just one or come all summer long!

Sign up by calling The Golf Academy.

Ages 5-7

Most of the class time is devoted to speed development and fundamental movement patterns. Plus, one golf skill “theme-of-the-day” is introduced and the stations re-enforce that golf fundamental.

Ages 8-10

This session focuses on mastery of the fundamental movement patterns and developing sports skills. Each station re-enforces a specific golf skill such as wrist set, club path or swing plane.

Ages 11-14

At this age, skill regression is common so the focus is on skill maintenance not skill acquisition. This class centers around power development, flexibility, stamina and endurance. This training circuit will address these unique age-appropriate training requirements.

Truckee Tahoe Junior Golf Tour

The Truckee Tahoe Junior Golf Tour is an all volunteer organization. Participating golf courses have donated 100% of the tee times.  The goal of the TTJGT is to support the game and junior golfers by providing a fun, competitive and learning environment for a junior golfer to experience the competitive side of the sport or to test the skills of an already competitive and experienced junior golfer.
