NEW!
PGA Junior League at Wilmette Golf Club

Age 8-13
May 9-July 31, 2015

     The PGA of America is spearheading a program that gives children age 13 and under the opportunity to enjoy golf in a fun and competitive team format. Think of it as little league baseball for golfers. The structured league will provide a popular, less stressful scramble format as opposed to stroke-play competition. This is a great way to keep kids involved in the game.

     The team will meet at Wilmette Golf Club and also play at other clubs in the area. The other teams we will be competing against are from Indian Hill Club, Westmoreland CC, North Shore CC, The Glen Club, Bryn Mawr CC and Sportsman’s GC. Exact days and times to be announced. The fee is Wilmette resident: $198/ Non-resident: $250. You will not be required to pay any fees until the days and times are finalized.

Includes:

  • Six regular season competitions in a fun scramble format
  • Six one-hour team practices led by Director of Instruction Kim McCombs
  • Team jersey and hat.
  • PGA Junior League Bag Tags

Junior Golf Lessons   
Age 11-17

During these 4-week sessions we introduce the basic concepts of the long and short game, as well as accepted parameters of behavior on and around the golf course. It has been our experience that if kids know what is expected of them at a golf course, and are able to enjoy the game as it was meant to be enjoyed, the learning of the game takes care of itself. Here’s the opportunity to lay the foundation for a life time of enjoying the game of golf. Fees are $99 for residents and $125 for non-residents.
