Ingleside Golf Club would like to thank all our participants for a great 2012 Junior Golf Clinic. We are very proud of our junior programs and our commitment to junior golf has always been our number one priority. We will continue to teach juniors the fundamentals of the game, as well as rules and sportsmanship. This is the perfect opportunity for young golfers from the ages of 7-16 to play and learn about the game of golf. We hope you will join us again for another great year.
Junior Clinics: June 26-28, July 10-12, July 24-26, August 14-16
The size of the clinic will be 16 kids per clinic. Junior golfers from the ages of 7 to 16 can participate in the junior golf clinic. The days and times for the clinic weeks will be different. Each clinic week will consist of three days, Tuesday through Thursday, starting at 9:00 am and ending at 12:00 pm. Juniors will be broken into groups, according to age and ability, and sent to separate stations to work on various parts of their golf game.
The fee for the Junior Golf Clinics is $100 per week. Registration can be by email, phone call or by stopping at Ingleside Golf Club. Payment can be made by cash, credit card or checks made payable to Ingleside Golf Club. Payment must be received with the registration form and all money is non-refundable.
We will not be swapping out siblings or neighbors to replace applicants that drop out after registration. Please understand no substitutions will be made, NO EXCEPTIONS!
When registering the student(s) in person, a receipt will be given including the appropriate week.When registering by mail, we MUST HAVE AN EMAIL ADDRESS to send the date and confirmation. We would appreciate emails from all applicants; this could help keep the costs down in the future. So, please, a proper email is greatly appreciated. We will be announcing much of our discounting, junior league info, family night, etc., via email. Send emails to email@example.com. Thank you in advance for your email address.
Jim Baer, PGA Head Golf Professional at Ingleside Golf Club will be present at every clinic and will have someone assisting him at every clinic. We need volunteers to help these instructors on play days throughout the clinic. Your child will not be allowed on the course if enough volunteers fail to supervise. We must have one supervisor per group. Golf is not only a sport you can truly play with your children throughout your life, but consider this a unique opportunity to bond with your child through the great game of golf.
A limited amount of equipment is available for those who do not have their own clubs. Please attempt to find your own set of clubs so we can be sure to have clubs for those who truly need them. Beginner golfers need only have an iron (7, 8 or 9); a wood (3 or 4); a putter and a light carry bag. Golf balls and tees are supplied.
We offer a lunch special for $5.00 which consists of a hotdog, chips and a beverage. We will supply a water cooler for the kids during the clinics. Other snacks are available to purchase. Please be sure your child leaves the house with the adequate supplies for their special needs.
Dress code is a very important issue when coming onto the course. Proper attire consists of a collared shirt (one will be supplied), shorts or slacks (no jeans or cut off shorts), sneakers or golf shoes. Sneakers are okay but if your child is a regular golfer or progressing in their ability, golf shoes are recommended and available in our golf shop. Hats are to be worn properly and shirts must be tucked in at all times.
There will be no returns or exchanges on shirts this year so please fill out the appropriate shirt size on the registration form. To keep costs down we only order enough for each clinic week. Shirts will be available for pick-up as soon as possible once we all have all the spots filled; the order will be placed. Usually, we have all shirts by the middle of May. Call the Pro Shop to see for the arrival date.
This clinic’s intent is to “break even,” not “for making a profit.” The majority of the costs are fixed; meaning the money is spent for most items before the start of the programs. We work very hard to keep the costs down in order to make this clinic affordable. This is why we stress that we cannot give reimbursements during rainouts. There is simply no money left to distribute.
The other often asked question is “Why not reschedule?” The golf course has many other activities outside of our summer junior clinic. As early as January we are scheduling around the junior clinic to accommodate golf outings, member tournaments, junior tournaments for our high school teams, and other prebooked events throughout the summer. There is also the issue of people planning their vacations around the clinic as well as our instructors having other obligations. There is simply no room to reschedule these clinic weeks considering all the above factors and the start of the school year in late August. If more than two full days were rainouts then we would try our best to reschedule at least one other day to complete the camp.
We would like to thank all the parents for the dedication to junior golf and we hope to have another successful season!
