Our unique curriculum combines golf skills with character development. The program is year round and is designed for young golfers from ages 5 -18. (we also offer private lessons to kids under 5) All abilities are welcome. The golfer is placed in his/her appropriate skill level and are able to advance through the 6 levels of comprehensive instruction at their own pace. After passing each Level Test, students will receive a Bag Tag . The program is intertwined with 8 "Play Days" a month where the children play on the course with their parents or adult supervision.

                Pam Bowers is our

                 Program Director .  She

                 grew up in  Henderson

playing junior golf and for the Basic

High School golf team. Pam attended

He truly enjoys working with students to help them reach their goals, and as a result they enjoy working with him. His long term goals include working with players of all ages to teach them strong fundamentals, correct knowledge of the golf swing, and on course strategies to help them reach their true potential.


Our Philosophy

Creativity, direction, patience, kindness and enthusiasm are the key ingredients for fueling our student’s interest in learning.  Our class sizes range from 4 to 10 golfers.  We focus on organization and good communication with the kids and their parents.  We teach to a curriculum for each level, so each student is clear on what skills they are striving to master.  Because of this focus each student can make progress quickly.


The kids are thriving on their own personal growth and accomplishments on and off the course.  They are learning that “doing their best”, rather than “being the best” is a part of winning in the big picture.  The old adage “It takes a town to raise a child.” makes us proud that we are focused on doing our part!
