We have an award winning Junior Golf Program directed by our head professional, Gary Sassu (A-1). Gary has been recognized with awards for being the best junior teacher in Connecticut. Juniors really look forward to the clinics with Gary on Friday mornings during their Summer vacation, after which they have the course to themselves until 11:30 a.m.
All Juniors receive lessons in full swing, sand play, chipping and putting. Proper golf course and clubhouse etiquette are emphasized.
18 Hole Group - One hour clinic starting at 7:30 a.m., followed by 18 holes of golf
