Jr. Linksters “Varsity” Golf Teams

Welcome to the most exciting opportunity for Junior golfers in Bloomington/Normal, “Team” golf.  No this isn’t High School golf, this is Jr. Golf developed around the concept of “Team” sports.

The otherwise individual sport of golf can be intimidating and lonely for youths.  The Jr. Linksters “Varsity”Golf Team, at The Links, is designed to better socialize the game for boys and girls, ages 8-14.   The “Varsity” Golf Team is the ultimate option for local youth golfers to expand their skills while having fun with others their age.

Because of the success of The Links Jr. Golf Program, we are able to make this offer to Central Illinois youths.  Our “Varsity” Golf Team is open to as many as 60 youths.  Each team consists of approximately 10 youths.  Players/Teams meet 10 times for practice, usually weekly starting in April-June.  Players/Teams also encouraged to participate in our Saturday am “best position/scramble” formatted competitions.  The quasi-competitive format used on Saturday is much less stressful than normal stroke-play, while the team practice sessions are educational and fun.  The registration fee is $325.  This fee includes a team golf shirt, a season golf and range pass, and the team golf instruction costs.

If you have a youth that shows interest in golf and would like more information on this or other Jr. golf programs at The Links,  contact Jeff for a student evaluation and possible openings on this years “JV” or “Varsity” team!
