At Esmeralda Golf Course



2022 Junior Golf Classes

Esmeralda is excited to welcome kids 5 and above to join our junior golf program. We will be using the US Kids Golf Learning Pathway to guide our instruction and classes. This system incorporates best practices to help kids achieve success and continue to improve while having fun. Each student will receive a US Kids Golf Player Textbook that will guide their learning and how they will be assessed in order to move on to the next level. The player pathway model is a wonderful way to introduce juniors to the game while also challenging them through games, skills, and knowledge as they progress through the program.

If this sounds like the program for your child, please use the registration links to sign up!
