CUBS is aimed at the youngest golfers, age 8 to 12. Through fun and enjoyable golf games, they’ll learn basic skills and get to interact with other children of a similar age group who are also new to golf. The Champ’s program runs for 10 consecutive weeks with 90-minute group lessons each week.

Each Junior will learn the basics in a relaxed and fun environment with a strong emphasis on interactive learning through target-based games.

ELITES is the advanced class for those who have qualified through attending the entry learn classes. Learning simple golf course play whilst improving their ball striking skills is paramount to this learning phase. ELITE is designed to sharpen skills and broaden the child’s golf knowledge, the thinking and planning of the game is introduced. Pre-shot routines will be applied with an overall focus on learning to play. Juniors will have a sound knowledge of each aspect of the game and learning to apply this knowledge to the course is the objective.

EAGLES are for the advanced junior who has progressed through the full program or shows adequate ability through previous experience. Video and more in-depth techniques will be applied and tested regularly. A particular level of Maturity must be evident as they will need to understand golf etiquette as they will be playing the full golf course. They will learn how to keep simple stats and learn how to assess their strength and weaknesses from these. The course they play is lengthened as they improve their skills and reach qualifying targets. A practice routine is introduced for Eagles as it is helpful for them to be practicing specific skills at this stage.
