Junior Development Program

Thanks for showing interest in Hamrick Golf’s Junior Development Program.  The program will be held at both Elkhorn Golf Club and Micke Grove Golf Links.  The program is designed to, first introduce juniors to the game and help them develop an enjoyment and passion for the game. After the passion and enjoyment is there, we will develop their mechanical skills and shot making skills; and lastly sharpen their ability to focus and perform under pressure in a simple, fun, and focused atmosphere.  Using the driving range and course to expose them to various formats of golf, from team games to individual stroke play. The program consists of 3 semesters that run from March-October.  Ages 6-13
