Junior Golf Programs
|Summer Junior Golf programs available at Gypsum Creek GC|
Gypsum Creek looks forward to providing Eagle County youth with an opportunity to learn the basic skills of golf, as well as crucial life skills such as honesty, responsibility, integrity, judgment, respect, courtesy, confidence, sportsmanship and perseverance. The First Tee is the heart and soul of what we do for kids here and we have created a few programs with their help to try and increase our reach:
The ever popular First Tee Intro to Golf Classes are scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from June 7 through 22. Kids from 4-14 are grouped by age and given lots of attention as they give golf a try. You can register online at www.firstteedenver.com or call the Gypsum Creek Golf Shop. Call Tom or Blake at 970-524-6200 or the First Tee in Denver at 720-865-3427 for more information. One thing we promise. Your kids will have FUN!
The WECMRD-Gypsum Creek Junior Intro Camp is similar to the First Tee program and done in partnership with WECMRD. The dates run from July 7 to 21. Look on the WECMRD web site (wecmrd.org) or come in and ask Tom or Blake about the details.
For kids who have been on the course a few times, the WECMRD -PGA Junior Champions Camp is just the ticket. Three mornings in a row where they spend time learning to play the game at the next level. June 28, 29, 30. Enrollment is limited. Call and talk to Tom for more details. 970-524-6200 x1.
There is a First Tee - PGA Tournament Players Series for those kids who can play nine holes, carry their own clubs, keep score and get around the golf course on their own. The minimum age is 14 yrs. These kids will play four 9 hole events on Tuesday afternoons starting on June 21. Please contact Tom or Blake at the Gypsum Creek golf shop (970-524-6200) for more information.
Perhaps the most fun will be the brand new PGA Junior Golf League. Kids from 8 to 13 will play nine holes in a team scramble format at area courses on tuesday afternoons. Kind of like Little League for golf. We finally figured out how to have fun playing golf. I wish I was 12 years old all over again. Call Tom to talk about this. 970-524-6200x1.
