Mission Statement

The mission of the "Hole-n-One" Junior Golf Program is to introduce the game of golf to youth 4-15 years of age in a recreational setting to maximize the "fun" aspect of the game. This program maintains a low competitive experience allowing young players to enjoy themselves while learning the rules, etiquette, conduct and techniques of golf. All skill levels are welcomed with each child receiving equal attention. The goal is to make every child feel successful and to have a great amount of fun.

One long-term goal is to have the participants return each season to enhance their skills and eventually pursue more advanced golf classes that are offered. Another goal is to create enough interest in the game of golf that children will include this great sport as one of their life-long leisure activities. Golf is a game that can be played by all ages. Hopefully, these junior golfers will continue to play, as they get older. When they reach adulthood and have families of their own, their children will hopefully follow the same path.

Description

The facility also has a lighted grass driving range, lighted chipping and putting greens, pro-shop, indoor training center, and a complete restaurant and banquet facility.
