The Links' Junior Golf Academy 

The Links Junior Golf Academy will return for 2016 season.  Pat Sullivan will lead the instruction with assistance from Jonathan Tuttle and Andrew Hettinger.  This program will consist of 6 one week sessions beginning 7/5 and running through 8/11. Each weekly session will run Monday thru Thursday. Drop off time is 8:30 and pick up is 12:00 – 12:15 pm.  Each week will cover the fundamental requirements of the golf swing and students will learn long game, short game, strategy, on and off course etiquette and participate in fun games and competitions.  The cost of a weekly session is $199 per golfer.  We will require a minimum of 5 students per week.  If enrollment is short for a given week, any students who signed up will be notified.  Please make payment in the form of cash or check upon arrival the first day.  All Academy students will receive a gift compliments of Pat and his Assistant instructors.
