It’s time for your kids to experience golf at Minnippi!

Promoting golf among young people and nurturing their skill growth plays a pivotal role in the long-term future of golf. At Minnippi Golf & Range, we are dedicated to fostering the development of junior players under the age of 18 through our new Junior Coaching Courses. 

Our courses are designed to inspire and enable young people to play and practice without any limitations, encouraging maximum potential. 

It is estimated that it will take a full term (6 weeks) for the junior golfer to advance to the next level. A GOLF SKILLS TEST will be held regularly so that it will be possible for the junior golfer to advance to the next level. We understand that certain children may progress in their learning more quickly than other participants in each program. It is at the sole discretion of our Golf Professionals to assess each junior to see if they are ready to progress to the next level.  Alternately, private lessons and coaching at discounted junior pricing is available to each child to assist in advancing to the next level.

At the completion of each level, a presentation will be made to the junior that has completed it, at the end of the last playing lesson of the term. Parents/Guardians will be notified when their child has graduated to the next level, and as this is a key event, all parents/guardians are expected to attend where possible.

LEVEL 1 – ROOKIE

This level provides the perfect introduction to golf for children with little or no golf experience, aged from 6 years. The key to these lessons is for the child to learn the basics of golf and to have FUN doing it. Children will learn:
