NEW! The Glenview Junior Golf Academy

GPGC Youth Golf Experience
The Glenview Park Golf Club and Glenview Prairie Club have teamed up to bring you the Glenview Junior Academy. The Glenview Junior Academy is a unique, fun, and exciting program designed to provide professional instruction as well as promote growth and development for every junior golfer through each stage of their development. The Glenview Junior Academy is a six-level progressive program focusing on one specific area of the game at a time. At each level, or “hole”, juniors attend four 50 minute group lessons per month based on our flexible academy schedule. Classes will be filled with fun learning activities, golf fitness games and contests. Everyone will start at level 1; at the end of every month each junior will be evaluated on whether or not they are ready to progress to the next level. This allows all junior golfers to learn the game of golf comfortably at his/her own pace. Max/Min: 8/4 per class Fee: $99/month for both residents and nonresidents

Summer Swing Golf Camp

Half Day Camp (ages 8-16)
Our week long Junior Camps offer aspiring golfers an opportunity to experience the wonders of golf in a fun and positive learning environment. The camps are designed to create interest and develop the playing abilities in beginner and intermediate golfers. Camps will be filled with fun learning activities for campers to take part in as well as sheltered areas to seek shade from the hot summer sun. As the week progresses campers will have a chance to win prizes and test their skills from targets to aim at on the range to a wide variety of skills contests. Campers will leave camp with improved skills and a greater understanding and passion for the game of golf.
Full Day Camp (ages 8-16)
Full day camp makes the transition from the range to the course easy. With thirty hours of combined range and on-course instruction campers will be able to experience everything the game of golf has to offer. Combined with half day camp in the morning full day camp starts on the range where throughout the week campers will develop full swing and short game fundamentals. Then after lunch take their newly acquired skills straight to the golf course for a 9-hole playing lesson. With a low student to pro ratio (4:1) the on-course portion of camp gives campers a chance to apply what they learned in the morning in a fun and safe learning environment.
