Our 2021 Summer Golf program begins on Wednesday, June 9 and lasts thru Thursday,

opportunities, and more individualized instruction.

Instruction will be led by PGA Professionals and Certified US Kids instructors Douglas Dunbar and Brent McGrew.
Together, they have combined experience of over 50 years in developing and mentoring young players as they
travel the pathway to success. U.S. Kids Golf Certified Coaches are recognized as experts in teaching golf
to kids ages 12 and under. In 2020, Coach “B” was selected as one of the top 50 US Kids instructors worldwide.
As part of the new 2021 program, players will receive easy to follow instruction booklets
“The Simple Path to Learning Golf”.
These Player Pathway Manuals outline an easy-to-follow curriculum that is perfect for kids, parents, and coaches.
This program provides participants a clear path from a beginner to becoming a more advanced player.
