Middle School Programs
The golf academy at Green Garden Country Club offers multiple programs for our middle school students. All middle school golfers begin with 30-minute individual lessons. If interested in expanding beyond individual lessons, golfers can inquire about the following middle school developmental programs.
- Middle School Academy (MSA). A team-like 12-month program that requires a commitment to 4, 1-hour golf classes and one 30-minute individual lesson each month. MSA focuses on higher level skills such as: flighting the golf ball, hitting shots on demand, specialty shots, improved swing speed, competing at golf, rules and other skills designed to develop golf IQ. MSA enrolled students continue every month until they move to a high school class, are invited to join the middle school team or decide to leave the academy. Interested golfers can join our MSA waiting list once they have mastered the required skills in their lessons.
- Middle School Golf League (MSGL). MSGL is a 9-hole competitive league created for golf academy students to apply the skills learned in individual lessons, classes and team. It provides a controlled opportunity for golfers to play golf with other golfers their age in July & August. This is not an instructional league and although we try to send high school golfers out to help teach etiquette, ready golf and rules – all participating golfers must to be able to navigate a golf course on their own. This league is only available to academy students.
- Middle School Team (MST). MST is a 12 month, by invitation only program for the golfers with competitive golf experience demonstrating the commitment to practice and the desire to improve. Golfers and their families commit to weekly 1-hour practices, weekly 30-minute individual lessons, monthly fees that include range/course access fees, monthly guest speakers and a 6 tournament travel schedule. In addition to the monthly fees, team golfers are responsible for tournament entries, team gear and any tournament travel expenses. MST bids go out to golfers in grades 6,7 & 8 once a year, at the beginning of the school year.
