NEW FOR 2020! ... This year's Academy will be offered in a convenient Day Camp format over four days in a fun, focused and positive learning environment. Each day, students will participate in three hours of both fundamental skill building and on-course instruction at the Golf House Tennessee Learning Center. Students will develop their skills in putting, chipping, pitching, bunker play and full swing. Students will also have the chance to transfer those skills to on-course learning opportunities, while learning key principles of golf course strategy, shot selection and scoring zone performance.
In consideration of this summer's public health guidelines, the TPGA Junior Golf Academy will be presented in a Day Camp format. We will still provide each student with our full curriculum covering all of the key fundamentals of the game, along with a full schedule of fun on-course games and competitions that will allow them to take their new skills to the golf course.
