Looking for a Junior Golf Program?

There are many benefits to running a UGA program at your golf facility.  We believe that using UGA’s unique approach to teaching age appropriate skill development in a well structured, positive and FUN environment to children as young as 4 can add significant value to each customer’s experience at your golf facility.

Running a UGA program will inherently increase the amount of time the parents and family members of your students spend at your facility, which has been proven to lead to more customer time out on the golf course and, in turn, an increase in revenue at your facility.

The National Golf Foundation reports that 58% of core golfers indicate it is “very or somewhat likely” that their family would get involved in golf if encouraged. 47% said that they themselves would “play more often” if their family were more involved with golf or the amenities at the course they play most often.
