Junior Golf School 2017
Logo-HiDef.jpgYoung golfers will realize their potential in this progressive skill development school. Junior Golf School works on a Hat System to encourage young golfers to strive for improvement. Instructors continually evaluate golfers and concentrate training on areas where improvement is needed. A unique reward system is established for practicing as well as performing. If your child has an expressed interest in learning the game of golf in a proper and fun environment, sign up for this school and experience the rewards the game of golf has to offer. Junior Golf School is held at and instructed by Hawthorn Woods Country Club.

How Junior Golf School Works

Juniors must complete a 60-minute evaluation prior to the start of the program to determine appropriate hat color. Each Junior will be evaluated and graded on a 1 to 10 point scale to determine their starting hat color. Upon completion of the evaluation each Junior will receive the proper color hat and a copy of their evaluation so they can focus on the necessary skills to graduate to the next hat color. Each Junior Golfer will be evaluated in the following categories:
  • Full Swing > Set up, Swing Technique, Distance & Accuracy (40 total points available)
  • Chipping > Set up, Technique, Contact & Accuracy (40 total points available)
  • Pitching > Set up, Technique, Contact & Accuracy (40 total points available)
  • Bunker > Set up, Technique, Impact & Accuracy (40 total points available)
  • Putting > Set Up, Technique, Speed/Line & Green Reading (40 total points available)
  • Rules & Etiquette (20 total points available)
Scheduling Evaluations: 
Juniors must complete a 60-minute evaluation prior to the start of the program to determine appropriate hat color. Dates will start in May on the weekends and after school. Please call the Golf Shop at (847) 847-3259 to set up an appointment. Each evaluation appointment will take approximately 60 minutes (30 minutes of swing evaluation and 30 minutes for the Rules and Etiquette test).
