Junior Golf Instruction

FUN! It’s what golf is all about! Our clinics and camps are designed, first and foremost, with that in mind and your kids will have a blast learning to play better golf at Chautauqua. It’s important that kids improve as well (we all know that golf is more fun when you’re good at it) and Dave and Erik have each taught multiple state champion golfers and junior golfers who have gone on to receive numerous Division 1 and 2 golf scholarships. The foundation for great golf starts early and our many offerings are a great way to get YOUR junior golfer on the path to success.
