Junior Programs – Spring | Summer | Fall
The Deerfield Golf Club and Learning Center boasts one of the finest 18 hole golf courses in the Chicagoland area.
Designed by famed golf course designer Edward Lawrence Packard, the course measures nearly 6,900 yards from the championship tees; however, the newly-renovated course now offers five sets of tees that will challenge the expert yet afford the beginning golfer a very playable and pleasurable experience.
Installed in 2013, in partnership with the PGA of America and the U.S. Kids Golf Association, the course now features two sets of family golf tees. The Family Course Program allows play from appropriate yardage for different ages and abilities which builds confidence, promotes enjoyment and allows for the ability to maintain pace of play while on the golf course.
2019 Fall Programs at Deerfield Golf Club
The Junior Essentials program at The Golf Practice is an age specific (ages 5-14) introduction to the game of golf. The program’s goal is to get young golfers excited about learning and participating in the sport. We nurture this excitement by using a variety of non-traditional tools to assist our junior golfers on their path to discovery.
Through skill-based game playing, drills, and contests, players continue to build their athleticism and golf movement skills while understanding methods and techniques used to move the ball around the course.
The Travel League is intended as an introduction to competition. It is geared towards young golfers who can demonstrate basic playing skills, a primary understanding of golf rules and etiquette, have previous golf course experience, and show an interest in competitive golf. Junior Travel League introduces the skills that are imperative for competitive play.
