Old Waverly’s Junior Golf Cottage
Is it really all about talent, scores, and trophies? Is there a correlation between great swing mechanics and a great mind? Do junior golfers even understand goals? Why do some juniors excel and some never break through? Is competition healthy? What areas should a junior golfer be looking at to improve? Is it all about hitting balls and building great fundamentals? What are the keys to keeping golf a “healthy” part of an adolescent’s life?
Tackling these questions while being blessed with the support of passionate members led to Old Waverly’s Junior Golf Cottage. Junior golfers will stay in the Fleishhacker Junior Golf Cottage while attending 1, 2, or 3-day camps. The Cottage sleeps eight junior golfers along with two counselors. When attending the camps the junior golfers will enjoy an all-inclusive experience, which basically only requires golf clubs, clothing, and toiletries.
Here the junior golfers will learn HOW TO rather than WHAT TO. They will experience goal setting, skill building, and the transfer of that skill. They will come to learn the difference between TARGETING and AIMING. They will learn how to practice by OBJECTIVE rather than just beating on golf balls with no purpose. They will learn the importance of a ROUTINE rather than having a mind full of swing thoughts. They will learn the importance of REINFORCING each shot, each practice session, and each tournament. Furthermore, they will learn how to make "smart" decisions on the course, enabling them to get the most out of their skills.
We will also create camps for juniors and their own PGA Professionals. In this way if a group of youngsters and their PGA Professional want to come in and work during times not currently on the schedule they can just give us a call. This way our group of instructors are working side by side with other PGA Professionals and their juniors.
