Newbury Golf Center - Junior Golf Schools
Junior golf schools for boys and girls at Newbury Golf Center are a structured fun learning environment with small groups. Each of our schools will not exceed 10 children and will be taught by PGA professionals. During the school children will be taught the fundamentals of the golf swing, all aspects of the short game, and putting. They will also learn the rules of golf and etiquette of the game. This program was designed by our founder Erik Sorensen in 2001 while working at Myopia Hunt Club in South Hamilton, Massachusetts. Erik and his junior program were recognized by US Kids golf in 2007 as a Top 50 junior instructor and program in the United States.

Junior Golf School – FAQ
What if my child has never played golf before or been to the driving range?
The schools are geared towards all levels of players. Our small groups allow us to give students one on one time and teach each child to develop at their level.
Do you provide clubs for the kids?
Yes, if your child does not have clubs, we can provide loaner clubs free of charge for the golf school.
Do you sell junior club?
Yes, we are a full fitting center for juniors and sell junior clubs in every size.
My child has taken golf lessons before and knows the fundamentals, is the golf school for them?
Absolutely, limiting each school to 10 students allows each student to work with the teacher on their own games and level no matter their ability.
Who will be teaching the golf schools?
There will be two teachers in each school and one will be a certified PGA Professional. We keep the student/teacher ratio 5:1.
Can I put my child in a school outside their age group to be with their sibling?
We are a family friendly business and we know siblings who are close in age like to do activities together. It is acceptable to sign them up for the same school.
Can I sign my child up for multiple schools?
Yes, these schools were designed for children who attend one or multiple schools. Each time a child attends a school they are going to walk away a better golfer and more knowledge of the game.
Should I pack a drink and snack?
You are welcome to pack a drink and snack; we do provide bottled water for the kids during the schools.
What kind of shoes and clothes should my child wear?
If they have golf shoes great but not necessary, sneakers will work just fine. We encourage comfortable clothing; we are outdoors so packing an outer layer is always a good idea. Sunscreen and hats are also recommended.
What is an average day of the schools?
An average day starts at 9am and ends at noon, depending on the age group. We move the kids every 30-45 minutes throughout the property. We normally start the day with short game and work our way to the full swing. During our breaks we talk about rules and etiquette of the game.
What is your cancellation policy?
Your money is 100% refundable up to a week prior to the school, cancellation less than a week from the start of the school will receive a 50% refund.
What if the week I want to sign my child up is full?
