Kids Play Free from May 1st - December 31st
Most agree the best time to get started in this great game is when you are young. We are the Family Friendly Club in New Smyrna Beach. As long as kids can keep pace there are no restrictions on when they can play. Our New Smyrna Beach golf course is walking friendly and there are no time restrictions when kids can walk. We take junior golf seriously!
Our Junior Golf Program consists of Four distinct parts: The Hidden Lakes Junior Golf Academy, the Hidden Lakes PGA Junior League Team, Junior High / High School Camp, and our Summer Golf Camps.
The Hidden Lakes Junior Golf Academy
The cornerstone of our program is the Junior Golf Academy. During the Fall, The Academy meets once a week ( Thursday for Jr High and Friday for Elementary) for an hour and a half each session. The program starts Thursday, September 17th and runs through October 31st. The frequency and consistency of this program allows us to repeatedly cover the fundamentals with a fun, game based learning method. Each session we work on putting, chipping and full swing shots. We also have the opportunity to get on the course to teach how to safely and properly play with others on the course.
Due to the Social Distancing considerations, we have cut class sizes down and added more sessions. We will be pairing the kids based on age, skill level, and size. We have 7 planned Academy sessions. The cost of the Academy is $95 for the Fall per child. Or, you can pay $20 each session.
The PGA Junior League Team is a program where members of our Junior Academy will play other area clubs in an entry level type of competition. To be a team member, you must be in the academy but if you are in the academy you do not have to commit to the Junior League Team. The League is patterned after Little League baseball, where players play as a team with numbered jerseys. The emphasis is on fun. We use a Scramble format that allows for each child to contribute while they compete against 2 players from another team.
The cost to join the PGA Junior League team is and includes the uniform, league fees and other items. All registration for the Junior League is handled online at www.PGAJrLeague.com. Click “Sign Up” in the top right hand side and search for Hidden Lakes (I had to erase the zip code) to find our team sign up. You must pay for the Junior League on this site. In order to get uniforms before our first game, registration will close April 25th.
