About the Epic Golf School Academy Program
The Epic Golf School Program at Clover Greens Golf Course will be divided into 2 (two) programs:
- Program I – Grades 6 to 10
- Program II – Grades 1 to 5
During the instruction/practice time of the program, students will rotate through 6 (six) stations: Driver/Woods, Irons/Hybrid, Pitching, Chipping/Bunker, Putting, Rules/Etiquette
Students will be placed together in small groups (5-7 students) of like age/ability and receive instruction in each golf area every week. This structured instruction will allow each student to maximize building their golf skills and provide more personalized instruction. Time on the golf course will be divided between actual play, structured instructional segments, and on course demonstrations by golf staff which will allow instructors to teach concepts and cover parts of the golf game more comprehensively. As always, student’s age/ability will determine golf course content and group formations. In this program our goal is to focus more on instruction, increased practice time at the various stations, present new ideas and concepts, although this may decrease the actual time on the golf course, it will allow for maximum retention of skills taught each week.
