CLASSES WITHOUT LEAGUE PLAY

These classes are for players of all ages and abilities.  Please choose a program based on age range and kids will be grouped according to skill.  These sessions are strictly instructional and do not include any league play on The Mac Nine par three course.

DIVOTS (Age 3-5)

Divots is the first class in the Rush Creek Junior Golf Program series and is made up of three 45 minute classes.  It is designed for youngsters with little or no golf experience.  What makes Divots unique is parent involvement.  Parents (or another responsible adult) MUST attend each class with their child.  Parents are expected to stay with their child to help with safety and organization.  However, this also gives each parent the chance to learn how to teach their child.  Class content will include very basic skills such as putting and driving.  We will also include some coordination exercises like jumping and running.  Cost is $50.
