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 9-month program for golfers with high school team experience, that 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 takes place in late August for current/returning students and middle September for new students. HSA classes usually are at capacity when they begin in November. We do maintain waiting lists for golfers trying to join after our academy programs are full. HSA classes halt during the high school season but individual lessons are encouraged to continue during school golf season.
- High School Golf League (HSGL). HSGL 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 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 9-hole courses at Green Garden. Prizes are awarded in JV and Varsity divisions.. This league is only available to academy students.
- 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 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 monthly fees, team golfers are responsible for tournament entries, team gear and any tournament travel expenses. The HST format changes to individual lessons only during the IHSA golf season. HST bids go out to golfers 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.
