Junior golf has become a steeple of the Inwood Country Club experience.
Families from across Long Island and the boroughs of New York are able to take advantage of the amenities we offer, including an exciting junior golf program. The summer golf program begins on Father’s Day and continues through the end of August. It is a chance for those juniors, ages 5-13, to grow their interest in the game and learn a few life lessons in the process such as honesty, integrity, and dedication. Our program is designed to be educational of course, but the main objective is to have fun! Games and prizes are common occurrences and keep the juniors striving to succeed. All aspects of the game are explored including short game, full swing, and etiquette/rules. This allows our students to not only become well-rounded athletes, but well-rounded individuals.
In addition to the summer golf program, your Inwood golf professionals offer individual and group lessons for those who would like private instruction. This will better enable our professionals to tailor the instruction to the specific needs of the student.
Another continuing program at Inwood Country Club is a summer-long competition run by the PGA Junior League. Inwood first assembled a team in 2015 as an introduction to tournament golf and it was a great success. We have had four undefeated seasons thus far and first place finishes each of those years. We will be putting together another team of those juniors, ages 9-13, who are able to carry their own bag for nine holes and prepared to play in competition.
One of our newer initiatives at ICC has quickly become the talk of the club.
In 2016, we created our first Junior Club Championship and the feedback was so incredible that it is now an annual event! Junior golfers as young as seven years old can compete for the 1st place trophy! All divisions are separated by age, experience level, and number of holes played to ensure the fairest competition. Come on out to watch our juniors fight for the title of Junior Club Champion!
