School will soon be out, so it must be time to play some golf! This year, JUNIOR GOLF will begin with clinic days June 14th, 15th & 17th. Again in 2021 there will be a FREE Parent/Guardian range day with PGA Professional Fred Friedman and staff while the kids are on the course for Golf Course Orientation Day, June 18th. Here’s a further description of our program in 2021. Thank you to all the kids and influential adults in their lives, as well as the many parent, grandparent and others that volunteer in making this junior program what it is each year.
The number of holes children will be playing on play days will classify participants, NOT AGE. On the registration sheet, parents will be asked to write in if they prefer their child to play 3, 5, 9 or 18 holes. There will also be an age guideline on the registration sheet for parents to consult before requesting where their children be placed. If your child does not fall into the age guideline for the group you request, you MUST call to set up a short (free) evaluation with Fred Friedman or Jim Anderson before June 5th to determine if the requested group fits best for your child. Factors in determining the best group for a child are ability, maturity, age, previous year scores and preference of group. Also, children will be required to carry (pull) their own golf bags during play days.
In addition, by Noon on MONDAY’S before EACH play day, parents or children MUST call the golf shop at 635-3580 to sign up for the play day on Wednesday. This is VERY important, so we know how many walkers/scorers are needed for each play day.
The first clinic days are as follows:
JUNE 14th 8:00 am to 9:30 am 3 Holers
JUNE 15th 8:00 am to 10:00 am 5 Holers
JUNE 17th 9:00 am to 11:00 am 9 and 18 Holers
The registration fee is $65.00 per non-member child and $55.00 per SGC member child. This fee includes the clinic days, instruction, play days, gift, competition trophies and party. To sign-up please bring your registration to Spooner Golf Club’s Golf Shop. To set up an evaluation or if you have any questions, please contact PGA professional Fred Friedman, Jim Anderson or Maddie Friedman at the Golf Shop at 635-3580.
** With the further expansion of the Junior Golf Program in 2021, parents, guardians and other adult volunteers play A KEY ROLE in the success of junior golf. This program absolutely needs the support of the adults in the lives of our junior golfers to continue to grow, besides IT’S GREAT FUN!!! We would love to have any parents or guardians donate their time to help for any or all play days. If you’re able to help, please fill in the date(s) you are willing to walk and score on the registration form.
