Junior Golf Lessons Frequently Asked Questions
Why are there changes in the 2020 junior program?
Due to current social distancing guidelines we will not be able to offer our popular Be A Player Junior Group Program. It’s unfortunate especially since parents and youngsters have been so affected by stay-at-home and school disruptions. We have added several small make-your-own group offerings which offer opportunities to improve the junior skillfulness while having fun with friends and siblings.
Why is 7 years old the minimum age to participate in junior lessons?
Children younger than 7 generally prefer, enjoy, and need their parents involvement to feel secure and fulfilled. If your 4-6 year old is extremely motivated to learn to play golf and has spent a bit of time at the range or putting green, we will be happy to work with them. During the session, a parent will need to hang out in the lesson environment and show interest.
What is the cancellation policy for junior lessons?
For all junior lessons — private and group — I require 12 hours notice. For lessons canceled with less than 12 hours notice, you may be charged 50% of the lesson fee. For group sessions canceled with less than 12 hours notice, you may be charged the entire fee. In case of an unforeseen emergency, we can discuss. The scheduler sends (2) reminder emails. Please check your inbox. Better yet put the lessons on your calendar!
Will there be golf clubs my child can use?
We have some clubs for the juniors though cannot guarantee the proper size for very small juniors. You MUST let us know you need to use clubs. Please write in the “Note to Marian” box when scheduling a lesson or send an email. I recommend Dukes Golf in Annapolis for junior clubs. Owners Tom and Kevin are awesome.
May I email you that my child will not be able to make a session or lesson?
Please use the online scheduler to schedule, reschedule, or cancel sessions. Please contact me only if it is less than 12 hours before the session. I cannot handle manual session changes. The scheduler is mobile friendly and available 24/7 so please bookmark the scheduler web address. Please see the cancellation policy above.
Are you willing to make exceptions to other rules and policies?
I am always open to new ideas. If it is something I can alter and make available to all juniors and their parents, then yes I will make exceptions. Sorry, I won’t make exceptions for only one or a few — even if you are my very favorite parents or juniors. But if I can make it for everyone, then I will. I sleep better at night that way.
