Growth of the game initiatives: 

  • Over the past 2 years I have had a fall and spring PGA Junior League program that was instruction based on Thursdays
    after school. This year I added a Sunday afternoon scramble to it, just like they play in the official league. The response
    was overwhelming and we had double the entries in our fall league due to this.
  • I am going to try and do PGA Junior League this winter with instruction on Thursday afternoons after school with play
    being on simulators on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
  • I have over 100 kids in our summer PGA Junior League, this summer I made it a focal point to get out on the golf course
    with the younger players to help them learn to play the game better and to make better on course decisions.
  • One of the things I added this year was a junior demo day. On Good Friday, I had the US Kids Golf rep come out and fit
    kids. We had all types of games, putting contests, driving contests, wedge competetions where the kids just had fun. Also
    set up were tables describing all of our programs, initiatives for the summer, and tournament opportunities.
