Junior Golf Program

"Now is the time to get your kids signed up for the junior golf program. Watch them continue to grow and prosper as golfers, or get them started for the first time in the game of a lifetime." Enclosed is a schedule of events, daily itinerary, registration form, volunteer schedule and a guideline to placing your child in the appropriate level.

Each week, the juniors will be involved in a ½ hour group lesson, and then placed in groups to play their respective number of holes. The lessons will change each week and cover all aspects of the game. The lessons include: rules and etiquette, driver and woods, irons, chipping, pitching and putting. After the lesson, play will begin with a shotgun start and a volunteer will be assigned to each group. The junior golf league ends with a club championship and a pizza party for all the junior participants.

Our goal at Rich Spring is to build the best Junior Golf Program in Central Minnesota. We need your help in a couple of ways. First, sign your children up for the program and second, volunteer a few mornings to supervise a group. It is very important that we have you there with the 4 & 9-hole groups. These are the only two leagues that need volunteers. These leagues will take approximately 2½ hours of your morning. We ask for your help in improving the Junior Golf Program.

HOW TO PLACE YOUR JUNIORS IN THE PROPER GROUP:

4-Hole Group

Juniors just starting the game with some knowledge of the golf course. They will play the holes from the 150 yard marker and will play 4 holes on the specified side of the course. Parent/Guardian asked to stay during the program.

9-Hole Group

Juniors with a strong grasp of the game of golf, but haven’t quite made the leap to 18 holes. They need a little endurance and a little more experience. All play will be from the 200 yard markers for boys and girls. Must be able to play nine holes in two hours.

18-Hole Group

Juniors wanting to play competitive golf and can play in four hours. They will also get a chance to play with other area High School Juniors. All play will be from the white tees for boys and red tees for girls.
