Golf is meant to be a fun sport that can be played for a lifetime. It is a sport than can be taught and enjoyed at an early age and it provides great life lessons along with teaching the importance of integrity. At Tippecanoe Country Club, we strive to provide a junior golf program that encompasses the spirit of the game in a non-intimidating and fun environment. We offer programs for children as young as 3 and up through the teenage years. If a three year old can play soccer or basketball, why not golf? For our “Little Linksters” in that youngest age range, we provide instruction that not only involves the golf club, but also activities that promote similar muscle movements. At this young age, the very basic fundamentals are taught and as they grow older, the instruction slowly gets more advanced, but never does anything take more precedence than FUN! John Alexander, our Director of Golf, and Shannon Gardiner are seasoned instructors with years of teaching experience. Their experience and expertise creates a program that keeps kids wanting to come back to the golf course.
Tippecanoe Country Club offers a variety of Junior Programs including once-a-week drop-in clinics, week-long camps, bi-weekly clinics for the 3-5 year old golfers, and after school clinics through the fall along with fun wrap-up event in August.
Please see below for information on particular programs and contact Tippecanoe Country Club to sign your junior golfer up for any of these programs.
