The Acorn Academy is a unique program for kids ages 9 to 14 that provides weekly instruction and education in necessary related skills that are essential to success both on and off the course in a fun, friendly, and competitive environment surrounded by peers. Whether it be just to develop a greater love for and proficiency in the game, to compete in Junior Events, play for the local high school, or to possibly elevate your game with the goal of obtaining an athletic scholarship, we provide an environment that is unmatched. Each of our 4 instructors will work with all students enrolled, while cultivating an environment where learning is fun and rewarding.
Each student that enrolls in The Acorn Academy will receive weekly instruction on the Full Swing, The Short Game, and Putting while simultaneously being schooled on the underlying principles of each of The Acorn Academy Avenues to Achievement. Academy classes are held every Tuesday and Thursday at 3:15 & 4:15 PM and Saturdays at 12:30-3:00 PM in two semesters. The Spring Semester will run February through May and the Fall Semester will run August through November.
Each student that enrolls in The Acorn Academy becomes eligible for private instruction with any one of ouar 4 primary instructors at a discount off of the regular rate, up to once per week either during or in-between semesters. Private instruction is the recommended additional vehicle for most students whose desire it is to advance to competition and who have goals of playing the game competitively beyond the junior level. Academy students receiving private instruction will be helped with developing a customized practice schedule and will be given periodic on-course playing assessments as part of their instruction.
Enrollment in The Acorn Academy is limited to 20 students per semester and each primary instructor will take on no more than 5 students for private instruction. Continuing students will have priority over new enrollees at the beginning of each semester. All classes are held rain or shine unless otherwise notified.
