Ladies Tuesday Night 5 Hole League
The Tuesday Night 5 Hole League program has two main goals.
1. To have Fun
2. To provide the ladies with an opportunity to play weekly golf for 5 holes in a fun, no pressure situation; at the same time provide them with mind/ body skill building lessons to improve their game without the concern for score.

For a beginning or new golfer, the thought of having to keep your score places a lot of unnecessary pressure on their ability to have fun and learn the game.
The Tuesday Night 5 Hole League puts an end to score card pressure by not having any the participants keep score. In place of the traditional score card ladies will receive a specially designed, easy to follow, score card that keeps track of the Fun Factor and Golf Stats.
Golf statistics examples:
Number of putts – Length of putts – green reading – Number of chips – Length of chips – Lofted shots – Fairways hit – Missed greens – Bunker play – Up and downs – Bounce back – And more.
How can the Tuesday Night 5 Hole League make the game fun and at the same time improve your game?
1. Having Fun
Having fun, the first goal of the Tuesday Night 5-hole League and the most important aspect of playing golf, begins with league participants not being bound by most of golf’s traditional rules. The league has “It’s O.K” rules that are designed to help promote fun and learning.
Some examples of “It’s O.K.” rules.
Players are allowed to tee up the ball anywhere on the course.
Players may pick up their ball and advance it to any part of the course.
Players may skip any portion of the hole.
If you have never held a golf club or have some experience the 5 Hole League is about having fun and learning without the added pressure of score performance.
2. Stats and Skills
The traditional golf score of golf has always been relative to par. Par is just a number assigned to a hole based of length and hole complexity. The Stats and Skills eliminates Par and places the priority on skills verses score to par. This super fun program is designed to place the priority on a student’s ability to obtain the number one goal of golf – to get the ball in the hole.
Contrary to popular belief hitting a perfect drive or wedge shot alone will not improve your score, but looking at the whole picture can give you an answer of how and what to practice.
The game of golf itself is hard enough, let alone learning rules, golf lingo, etiquette, and equipment. The Tuesday Night 5 Hole League simplifies all the in’s and outs of the game through its clinics and it’s on course sessions.
Each Tuesday night session begins with a 30-minute group lesson that will simplify all of the in’s and outs of the game, from etiquette, rules, golf lingo, equipment and swing technique. After the 30 minutes range session participants have the option to play 5 holes of golf. Ladies will be placed into foursomes for tee times and be given a stat and skills score card to use during the 5 hole session.
After the completion of the five holes. the scorecard can be dropped off at the Stats and Skills Scorecard Box located in the pros hop. After a review of the scorecards, a golf video tip will be emailed to each participant that they may use during a practice session to improve their golf game.
The Tuesday Night 5 Hole League is a great place to make a friend with similar skills and goals.
If you are interested in learning to play the game of golf or just want to play a few holes of golf in a no pressure environment, the Tuesday Night 5 Hole League has an opening for you.

Project Short Game
Project Short Game is a five-week program designed to lower golf scores in a fun and exciting learning atmosphere by focusing attention solely on short game training. The program consists of two different levels which allows students the ability customize their training according to goals, desire, and schedule. Students may attend one or both levels of the P.S.G. program.
Project Short Game will guide students of all skill levels to develop the correct motor skills, strategies and techniques that are required for all types of short game shots. The short game is unique in that each type of short game shot is played with different swing mechanics and different locations from the fairway, rough, fringe, bunker and putting green. Having the knowledge to choose the correct set-up, swing mechanics and club will drastically improve your chances of getting the ball closer to the hole and ultimately lowering you golf scores.
You don’t need extraordinary strength or coordination to become a skilled player around the greens, but you do need the correct motor skills and strategies and mental game.
Sign up for Project Short Game and start lowering your scores.
The P.S.G. Goal
The goal of Project Short Game is to lower you short game handicap by 5 points in 5 weeks.
Why Project Short Game?
How often do you find yourself practicing the short game? If you are, are you practicing correctly? Are your practice routines focused on the areas that need improvement?
The short game has more to do with your score than any other aspect of the game. More strokes are played and often lost around tricky greens, in deep bunkers and from imperfect lies and difficult pin positions.

Ask yourself this question.
How many greens in regulation (G.I.R.) do you hit per 9 holes or per an 18-hole round?
(Greens in regulation—Par 3’s ball in on the green in 1 stroke, par 4’s in 2 strokes and par 5’s in 3 strokes or less.
Looking at the greens in regulations category on the PGA, LPGA and Champions tour, the best players in the world average 12 G.I.R.’s per round and still shoot an average score of 70. What does that say about their skill with the short game?
The USGA Average Amateur Score/Category chart shows the relationship of greens hit in regulation, per score, and the direct relationship it has with the number of putts, chips, pitch, and sand shots. Notice that as the number of greens in regulation goes down, the chip/pitch/sand shots increase as well as the average score.

Let’s do the math!
For a player that averages a score of 71 and averages 12 G.I.R.
40% of the score is putting
7% is from chip/pitch/sand shots
Total percentage of shots from 50 yards and in = 47%
For a player that averages a score of 95 and averages 1 G.I.R.
43% of the score is putting
22% is from chip/pitch/sand shots
Total percentage of shots from 50 yards and in = 61%
If you think back on the last round of golf you played and how many greens in regulation you hit, you may find that for your game, the short game accounts for more than 60% of your strokes. This is a very large part of the game and thus, it requires special attention

The First Session of Project Short Game
You have heard about a golf handicap, but what about your short game handicap?
The first session of Project Short Game begins with identifying the participant’s short game handicap. You can only manage what you measure, so improvement becomes difficult without a measurement tool. Project Short Game utilizes the Mielke Golf Short Game Handicap System.
The Mielke Golf Short Game Handicap system evolved from years of tracking and mapping amateur golfer’s short game statistics. A testing system and matrix was then developed as a means of discovering where strengths and weaknesses are in the short game by providing the players with a short game handicap.
Each participant will be asked to hit a series of ball from different locations around the green ranging from the confidence testing 3-foot putts to the 50-yard middle wedge shots.
Points are added or subtracted for balls that come to rest inside or outside a target distance range. A record of the participants shots is kept on a specialized score card where scores will be totaled and compared to the short game matrix. A short game handicap is then awarded.
If the short game handicap is higher than a participant’s golf handicap the Mielke Golf Short Game Handicap system will identify and highlight areas of concern.
Any short game area of concern will receive attention with a personalized practice plan along with video tips and drills designed to focus improvement on specific areas.
At the end of the five-week session participant’s short game handicap will be tested again to confirm improvements.

Take your game to the next level and lower your scores where it really counts, the golf course. This clinic is open to all. Class size is limited to 8 students.
