The Golf Academy provides an introduction to the game of golf along with instruction to improve current skills. Our goal is to prepare junior golfers with the proper knowledge and tools to use the BWRC golf facilities on their own. The Bretton Woods Junior Golf Academy teaches life lessons of honor, integrity, etiquette and good sportsmanship as integral parts of the game.
Bretton Woods Golf Professionals have adopted the US KIDS structure and methodology for developing our juniors into the game of golf. In a nutshell, everything from the clubs to the course is scaled to size. The US KIDS program has 3 distinct junior levels; Blue-beginner, Yellow-Intermediate and Red-Advanced. Program levels are structured with drills, rules and etiquette, playing ability and tracking progress on an individual basis. All of our 2019 programs will follow a progressive level of instruction.
Daily activities include morning clinics and individual instruction on full swings, short game, and putting, followed by lunch. After lunch, we have a break period and take the juniors to the pool. Afternoons consist of etiquette lessons, rules of the course, and on course play and instruction. Each session ends with a skills challenge allowing the kids to showcase what they have learned.
