 This year's instruction will follow the U.S. Kids Golf Player Pathway consisting of 10 Levels. As players advance from level to level, new forms are learned, skills improve and achievements are earned.

Completion of Levels 1-5 establishes the basic fundamentals to ensure a lifetime of enjoyment and knowledge of the game. Advancing through Levels 6-10 provides the skills to successfully compete in tournament play.
In each level, there are five checkpoints in which achievement pins may be earned: Putting, Short Game(Chipping&Pitching), Full Swing, Etiquette and Rules.



For 2022, WindRose After-School Program will consist of (four) five-week semesters. You have the choice to practice two or three times each week. Students will transtion between different stations covering all parts of the game: Full Swing, Short Game (Chipping & Pitching), Putting and Knowledge (Rules & Etiquette). Each station will cover the fundamentals and dive more into intermediate-advanced material as they move up the USKG Pathway Program (see US Kids Golf Section for more information). Following each semester, WindRose will have a tournament for $15 which includes cart, subject to availability. The purpose of these tournaments will be to showcase progress as well as ensure they are getting the on-course experience they need to grow their game. These tournaments will also be a chance for each player to earn their USKG Scoring Pin. Juniors will play three, six, or nine holes based on their USKG level.

The tournament format will be individual stroke play and caddies will be allowed under set guidelines. 

Jr. Academy Registration

Hi Parents,

Our fouth semester of the 2022 After-School Program dates September 26th - OCtober 28th (Tournament October 29th, 2022). All scheduling will be done through our scheduling app. Classes are flexible and you are able to move your practice days when needed within 1 hour of your scheduled practice. Credits do not carry over each semester. Classes are a (6:1) Student:Coach. 


1 Credit = 1 Practice
10 Credits: $200.00
15 Credits: $250.00

Tournament: $15.00 (Includes Cart Upon Availability)
Please cancel within 12 hours to avoid being charged $15 if you can't make it. No call no show will be charged $15. Please arrive one hour before your tee time to check-in, reserve cart (upon availability) and warm up. Parents are strongly encouraged to attend to help drive juniors around and score. Groups will be called out individually on the loud speaker to report to #1 tee box as everyone is warming up. Coach Garrett will be on #1 tee box to hand out scorecards and go over rules.

*Spectators*: Spectators are welcome. Carts are limited, as we need to be sure every junior playing has a cart. Spectator carts will be sold after all player carts have been handed out. I would let spectators know that there is a high chance they will be required to walk. Personal carts are typically not allowed at WindRose but for the tournament specifically, we will allow them.

Tee Ties will start at 5:00PM with Tornament Prep Class going off first, levels 4-6 second, followed by levels 3, 2, & 1

If you have any questions or concerns, please let Coach Shelby or Coach Garrett know.

Thank you so much parents for all of your support!
