Jr. Linksters “JV” Golf Team

The Links “JV” Golf Team was developed/designed for youths showing an interest in golf beyond beginner level instruction options.  While the team concept is by no means new, for youth golfers it provides an inclusive platform that draws youths to participate.

The Links “JV” Golf Team is the perfect next step for youths that have been previously  introduced/participated at golf but show more than a passing interest in the game.  This team approach to golf allows youths to grow their individual game while participating with friends & classmates.   It has been long reported that the number one reason kids have shied away from golf was because of a lack of participation by their piers.  Now that golf is a team sport at The Links, kids and parents alike are drawn to participate.  Below are just a few reasons parents are getting their youths involved at The Links:

  • friendship and camaraderie.
  • cooperation and teamwork skills.
  • leadership skills.
  • appreciation of different abilities.
  • respect for team mates/ opponents/officials.
  • a sense of belonging/team membership.
  • social interaction skills.
  • physical skills.

Youths participating on the “JV” golf team will receive a team golf shirt, 8-group lessons with their teammates, 2-private (30min) lessons, and will be eligible to participate in the near weekly 9-hole play day, and receive a season range pass.  The registration fee is $225.  Registration begins February 15th and ends April 1st.

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!
