Winter and Spring 2018 Junior Team Golf at Swan Lake Resort

Swan Lake Team Golf

Team Golf is an ongoing, year-round, instructional program for junior golfers of all skill levels who are enrolled in grade school through high school.

Team Golf is conducted in a group setting because it creates the ideal learning environment for kids to enjoy and excel at golf.

From grade school through to college, kids are part of a golf team. This team atmosphere is a vital support system for young, growing golfers.

Off-season training is recommended by our staff for all golfers, even if it is only once per week. Becoming familiar with the feel of the swing during the winter months allows learned skills to stay efficient and fresh, making the transition to the next golf season easier and more successful.

The levels outlined below are not based on skill, but rather to the commitment level (time) that the student and their family can make. Teams are designated by the student’s grade level in school as we did in the 2017 Sessions. Playing and learning with their peers is a key component in Team Golf.

Level 1

Level 1 will be conducted on Sunday afternoons as follows:

Grade Schoolers 12:00-1:00

Middle Schoolers 1:15-2:15

High Schoolers 2:30- 3:30

Team Golf Practice Curriculum

  • Full golf swing mechanics
  • Athletic development
  • Putting and chipping mechanics
  • Competition Prep (grade appropriate)
  • Rules and etiquette reviews

Level 2

Level 2 will be all the classes of Level 1 AND

One thirty minute private lesson with the Instructor each calendar month, January- May; appointment will be made by the student and scheduled during regularly scheduled Indoor Range hours.

Private lessons allow for more in-depth instruction for those interested in accelerated growth in skills.

A variety of tools may be used such as Flightscope simulation, high speed swing video, real-time video training.

Level 2 is highly recommended for Middle and High Schoolers whose golf match schedule starts immediately in the Spring 2018.

Space is limited indoors…Participation must be reserved with payment.

CASA will be sponsoring a special Story Time at the Plymouth Public Library on Tuesday, January 30th at 4:00 p.m. There is also going to be a drawing for an autographed copy of the book. The name of the book is Samuel T. Moore of Corte Macore by Tonia Allen Gould. The author said she wrote this book to teach children how to persevere when confronted by adversity, naysayers or bullies. Glenda Mechling-Smith will return to her previous job at the library as storyteller for this special book. There are slips for the drawing at the Children’s Circulation Desk from now up to the night of the event. Our ever popular Samantha the Therapy dog has already put it on her calendar to come and hear this uplifting story so make sure that you come and join her!
