 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 2021, WindRose After-School Program will consist of (four) five-week semesters. You have the choice to practice two or three times each week. 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. Medals will be awarded for the winner of each division. 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. As part of the new curriculum, our students will be assigned practice drills to accelerate their progress.

This summer, there will be no after-school program. Instead we ask that everyone possible participate in PGA Jr. League from November 15, 2021 - February 20, 2022. We are expecting to have four to six teams with each team practicing once a week for one hour a week on weekday afternoons and playing four to six tournaments guaranteed. Tournaments will take place on weekend afternoons. All teams will be paired as equally as possible. We understand families may be absent due to vacations, so we will undertake to have all practice and tournament schedules out by November 8, 2021.

WindRose Junior Golf Academy received the 2020 PGA Gamechanger Award, having the largest junior league in the section and Top 25 in the country. We thank everyone for their continuous support and look forward to another great year of junior league!


PGA Jr. League is a game-changing opportunity for boys and girls to learn and play golf. The program brings family and friends together around fun, team golf experiences with expert coaching from PGA and LPGA Professionals.

 PGA Jr. League is all about the recreational and developmental nature of regular season matches, held between June 1 and July 31.
 
During the course of one game, teams play four 9-hole matches in a popular two-person scramble format, reinforcing the team concept and creating a nurturing environment for learning the game. Coaches can also substitute players every three holes, so that all of the golfers on each team can participate.
 
PGA Jr. League is open to both boys and girls of all abilities, age 6-13! 

Cost: $375.00 (entire season including instruction, on-course time, uniforms and backpacks)

 

*Registration for Fall opens August 1, 2021 & closes November 6, 2021*
