Empower Your Child Through Golf

Whether this is the first exposure to golf or you’re looking to take your child’s game to the next level, we have a program to fit your needs.  TGA has developed a Junior Golf Player Pathway to help guide families through the journey of learning and playing this amazing sport.

The pathway consists of four core TGA programs which are progressive in their skill level, knowledge requirements and challenges; yet also complimentary to one another so children can participate in all four programs throughout the year to continue developing and refining their game.

The common entry points for new players are through our instruction-based Golf Enrichment Programs and Golf Camps before moving on to Play Days and Leagues which focus on gaining on-course experience in a low-pressure setting.  To learn more about each type of program, click on the icons below.

Play Days – Put the Skills into Play on the Course

TGA Golf Play Days are an opportunity for golfers of all skill levels to experience the social and competitive aspects of golf in a low-pressure setting.  The emphasis is on fun and safety as players get a chance to put their skills and knowledge into play on the golf course.  Parents are often invited to join their child as a caddy, but please check the details page of the event for specific rules at each course.

Parent Guide Results
"The instructors really tailored the program to young kids. There was a whole lot of instruction and technique, but they made it so fun! My daughter learned so much. Some kids' programs are either too fun/not enough learning or too strict/no enough fun. This program struck the balance exactly right."
Mary Thompson, TGA Customer
