Junior Golf Academy

2016 Junior Golf Development Series 

Bridges of Poplar Creek Country Club holds an extensive Junior Golf Program which annually attracts roughly 175 juniors throughout the region. Throughout each course, we strive to develop our young golfers to not only understand the basics of golf, the golf swing, etiquette and the rules of golf; but to show them the idea of all this is to have fun!

We use teaching techniques through our instructors, station work, competition and on course play to help allow the students to learn and develop the correct fundamentals in the golf swing. We hope they not only learn the ideas of how to swing the club properly, but to come out of it having the desire to want to continue on with the game of golf.
