Golf Instruction for Youths

Golf Instruction for KidsThe Highlands facility is the ideal place for juniors to learn and improve their golf game. The non-intimidating environment lets everyone feel comfortable while they practice and/or take lessons. Gretchen Scheuermann, an LPGA Class A Teaching Professional, is the Director of Instruction at the Highlands Golf Park. She has numerous years of experience teaching boys & girls of all ages and skill levels. A patient instructor, Gretchen makes sure that lessons are done in a fun, positive, highly motivating environment. It is not necessary for children to have their own golf clubs - clubs can be provided during the lessons, if necessary.
