Developing a junior golf program at my course

I used to break the kids down by age brackets older kids first. I would give them a clinic and a lesson then watch them each hit some shots then send them out to play
15 to 17 eighteen holes by themselves
12 to 14 nine holes
9 to 10 six holes
and the eight year olds (and a couple that were seven) three holes the last few groups needed the moms to keep them straight and score for them when these kids could shoot 24 or less for three holes they got to play six
Then I would stand on the final green and brag about their scores we would also have contest including long drive closest to the pin chipping and putting contest for each age group during the summer
The only thing I missed when I left the business was junior golf.
The big thing about a junior program is trying (and its not easy ) to show a special interest in every kid.
My last junior program was about ninety kids.
You know your getting there when they can not wait to tell you about a shot or what they scored.
Its all about the kids but you have to have the parental support.
goodluck to you

first day maybe a tuesday was practice the 3 usual suspects (chip putt strike) with the pros helping them out
the second day Thursday for instance play a tournament
Put this on for 3, 4 or 5 week and the kids will get into it
