The fees include unlimited range use during the class time frame. This is a great way for students from the same high school program to continue practicing with their teammates, as well as, other school programs in the area.

Our longest running program, with our Director of Golf, Pete Busch, starting this program over 20 years ago. The Fall High School Golf Program is designed to keep young golfers engaged and continuing to practice during the fall season. Pete noticed there was a void for kids to continue their practicing during the fall season. This is open to all kids in the area that are either on a high school team or are trying to get involved in high school golf. The advantage of this program is that this is a way for high school kids to continue to compete throughout the fall against some of the better players in the area.
We have had a large following with this group, as we are restricted to the first 50-60 players that join the program. With this, we are allowed to have somewhere in the neighborhood of 25 players per event. Kids will enjoy 2 or 3 matches a week at a number of golf courses in union county and surrounding golf courses. All play is from scratch, however there will be a number of different flights that will be created to better group the players based on their availability. Each round of golf will be played under a different format, individual stroke play, better ball, blind partners, skins, or scramble. We have found that having a variety of matches and formats has increased students participation.
There is a registration fee, as well as a weekly entry fee, which is determined by the host golf course. Weekly entry fees will be awarded in gift certificates that will be distrubuted at the year end championship and pizza party.
This is an outstanding program for students to continue playing golf during the fall months and a way to get exposure to some of the prestine golf courses in the area.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to Pete at firstname.lastname@example.org.
