Junior Golf Academy-2017
The Weibring Golf Club Junior Academy is an innovative golf program for juniors 4 – 16 years of age. The program will be administered by Stacey Miller, Assistant Golf Professional and former Futures Tour player .
Our goal with the program is designed to facilitate a fun atmosphere where learning can take place. We plan to cover golf etiquette, short game and full swing fundamentals, along with helping juniors transfer those skills onto the golf course. We also plan to offer a fitness aspect which relates golf skill movements with other common athletic sports. Each session will be Monday-Thursday (4 days) with Friday serving as a rain date. The progression of the week is designed to allow each participant’s golf skills to build off each day’s lesson. Being able to enjoy the game of golf and have FUN is of most importance! For more questions about our junior academy, please call Stacey at (309) 438-8065 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
