The Links' Junior Golf Academy

The Links Junior Golf Academy will return for 2020 season. PGA Member and Head Professional Pat Sullivan will lead the instruction with assistance from his Assistant Golf Professionals.

This program will consist of 8 one-week sessions beginning June 29 and running through Thursday, August 20. The Links Junior Academy can help all players reach their goals, whether new to golf or aspiring to compete at local tournaments or on scholastic teams. Our Academy is designed for new and returning golfers aged 5 – 14.

The Links' Junior Golf Academy, golf instruction in Hudson Valley

Each week, students will learn the golf swing's fundamental requirements, including long game, short game, strategy, and on and off course etiquette. The focus of the Academy is to introduce golf to new and young players while focusing on having fun and building lasting friendships.

We will be adhering to all local and regional guidelines for social distancing to provide a safe and fun environment for our students. Due to these safeguards, we will limit the group size each week to 16 students. Each Instructor will have a maximum of 4 students in smaller groups. We will ask parents to send water and a snack each day with their child. We can provide water and packaged snacks to students with parental permission.

The cost of a weekly session is $250 per golfer. For family's with multiple children attending, each additional child is $200. Academy students will receive a gift, compliments of Pat and his Assistant Professionals. Payment can be made in advance via phone by calling the Golf Shop directly or on the first day of each weekly session.
