Kids like to run and be active. That’s why the staff at Montclair Golf Club in West Orange, New Jersey, incorporates athletic activities in their five-week afterschool junior program. They do push-ups, jump rope, play tug-of-war, Frisbee and more, in addition to playing fun energetic music. “Our focus is creating engaging choices for youngsters who have quick, wondering minds,” says PGA Director of Instruction Brian Dobbie. “We are also developing athletic skills early that apply to strength and conditioning in golf.”
