TEE LEVELSALMOST GOLF:
Our first Personal Tee Level, Almost Golf, will be an introduction to the game of golf. Children will be introduced to the golf course, full swing basics, chipping and putting. A skills test will be passed prior to moving to the Blue Tees.
These golfers will have passed the Almost Golf skill set. They will begin playing the golf course from the blue tee markers (roughly 1,800 yards). When they have passed all ability checkpoints in the Blue Tee Workbook, they will graduate to the Gold Tee Workbook.
The next Personal Tee Level golfers will play from the gold tee markers (roughly 3,600 yards). When they have passed all the ability checkpoints in the Gold Tee Workbook they will progress to the Red Tee Workbook.
The fourth level; these Junior Golfers will play from the red tee markers (roughly 5,000 yards). Upon completion of the Red Tee Workbook, Junior Golfers will have demonstrated the ability to play competent golf as well as conduct themselves in an appropriate manner on the golf course. When they have passed all the ability checkpoints in the Red Tee Workbook, they will graduate to the Green Bag Tag Program.
GREEN BAG TAG:
The Junior Golfer for whom this applies will be given a Green Bag Tag, which must be prominently displayed on his or her golf bag. The Green Bag Tag will allow the Junior Golfer to play Lochmoor Club and use the practice facilities unaccompanied by an adult during non-peak times. Once you have graduated to the Green Bag Tag level you will be considered to be an eighteen hole golfer. This should be every Junior Golfer’s goal!
PASSING A LEVEL (HOW?):
A Junior Golfer must schedule an appointment with one of the Golf Professionals and perform the skill tests necessary to pass with the Golf Professional present. The Junior Golfer will be eligible to take the skills portion of the test once he or she has shown proper form.
PLEASE NOTE: Practicing the skills test and forms is a great way to take off the pressure when the time comes in front of the Golf Professional.
