Each Step progression is allowed after meeting set program goals all monitored by the course Professional.
Step 1 – Group lessons
Group lessons are where you learn the basics of golf one shot type at a time on the driving range and practice greens and bunker areas. Learn to grip it and rip it.
Step 2 – On the course
Once the shots are mastered and you can hit sufficient length you will progress to 3, 6 then 9 holes with junior forward tees, a course length ideal for juniors to practice all the shots of the game. Mums and Dads are encouraged to come along as caddies. Play in Pee Wee pennants. Join in with the 9 hole pee wee’s in the McLeod Junior Classic series each school holiday.
Step 3 – Getting a Handicap
Once the junior tees are mastered it’s time to get a handicap from the men’s and women’s tees over 9 holes.
Step 4 – Competition
Moving into full 18 hole competition is done with a club mentor to help guide you round the course and learn all the fine points of golf etiquette and scoring. Enter into the McLeod Junior Classic each holiday.
