High School Programs
The golf academy at Green Garden Country Club offers multiple programs for our high school students. Many high school golfers begin with 30-minute individual lessons. If interested in programs beyond individual lessons, golfers can inquire about the following high school developmental programs.
- High School Academy (HSA). A team-like program for golfers with high school team experience that meets November – May. HSA requires a commitment to 4, 1-hour golf classes and one 30-minute individual lesson each month. HSA 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. HSA enrolled students continue every month until they are invited to join a high school team or decide to leave the academy. HSA academy registration begins in early September and continues through October. HSA classes are usually at capacity when they begin in November. We do maintain waiting lists for golfers trying to join once our academy programs are full. 2022-2023 HSA classes will be offered on Mondays @ 5-6, Mondays 6-7 and Wednesdays @ 6-7. If all classes reach capacity, additional classes may be added.
- High School Golf League (HSGL). HSGL is a competitive golf 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 June & July. Golfers gain competitive golf experience while learning to play a different golf event each week with other golfers their age. Golfers will play a variety of courses at Green Garden. Prizes are awarded in JV and Varsity divisions.. This league is only available to RSW students (group or individual lesson). Registration will begin in early spring.
- High School Summer Camps. Held in June and July, the high school camps are 3-day camps, held from 9-3 and include instruction, rules, skill competition, lunch and 9-holes of golf each day. Camp registration will be open to current students in the spring. New student registration will follow. Watch for 2023 camp dates to be announced at the beginning of the year.
- High School Team (HST). HST is a 12 month, invitation only, program for golfers with summer tournament golf experience demonstrating a commitment to practice and the desire to improve. Golfers and their families commit to twice weekly 1-hour practices, 30-minute individual lessons twice a month, monthly fees that include range/course access fees, guest speakers, tracking practice time and golf scores (both tournament & practice) in a specific app and at least 4 of the scheduled team tournaments offered on the travel schedule. In addition to monthly fees, team golfers are responsible for tournament entries, team gear and any tournament travel expenses. The HST curriculum is designed with focus on swing during the winter season and a focus on playing golf during the spring/summer season. The HST format changes to individual lessons only during the IHSA golf season. HST bids go out to RSW students in grades 9, 10, 11 and 12 once a year, at the beginning of the school year. We offer separate high school girls and boys teams.
