WED JUNIOR GOLF 2023
Greg Dingel, PGA Professional, and the Veenker Memorial Golf Course staff are back to offer this outstanding Junior Golf Program. The program will meet for 8 weeks beginning on June 7th and running through July 26th. Each clinic begins at 8:00 a.m. and runs through 12:00 noon with a short intermission available around 10:00 to allow students time to purchase snacks and cool off on those steamy days. Juniors 10 and under will play 3 to 6 holes each week and then receive instruction for their last 2 hours. Juniors 11 and over will receive instruction to start the day, followed by the opportunity to play 6-9 holes. Juniors will return to the shelter area adjacent to the clubhouse to be picked up between 11:45 to 12:00.
These sessions are designed for boys and girls ages 7 – 13 who are interested in learning and enjoying the game of golf. Children must be 7 years old by at least July 1st. The price of the program is $250.00 this year. Additionally, entry to The Iowa Games Golf Tournament, Wed July 12th, is included in this fee and is one of our Jr. Golf days. All Veenker Jr Golfers will receive a tee gift.
During instruction all aspects of the game will be covered including: etiquette, FUNdamentals, putting, chipping, pitching, full swing irons, full swing woods, and rules of the game.
This program will be limited to 50 participants.
PGA JUNIOR LEAGUE 2023
PGA Junior League Golf (PGA JLG) is a nationwide program now offered on Thursday for advanced players. PGA JLG is designed to better socialize the game of golf for your golfers in either the 17U Division or the 13U Division. The PGA JLG program features a team-vs-team format in a structured league using a popular, low-stress, scramble format.
PGA JLG is an inclusive program that encourages all skill levels. We suggest that players achieve a minimum basic level of competence in at least one discipline; driving, chipping or putting, before joining a team. The scramble format provides a comfort zone for the developing player. For the accomplished Junior who may already be competing in individual tournaments, PGA JLG offers the opportunity to develop leadership skills in a team setting and most importantly, play on a team with friends. PGA JLG is a great way to get the entire family involved in golf, with parents as spectators, team-parents, and even coaches. Similar to other youth recreational sports, PGA JLG encourages and relies on parental involvement. In addition to making sure participants get to matches and practices, parents can play an important role in the success of their team as team captain/assistant, coach, team parent, match monitor/scorer or player recruitment.
