2017 Jr. Program

Greg Dingel, PGA Professional, and the Veenker Memorial Golf Course staff are back to offer their outstanding Junior Golf Program. This summer we will offer our normal junior program only on Wednesday. There will be a new program offered on Thursday for advanced players. The program will meet for 8 weeks beginning on June 7 and running through Aug. 2. Each clinic begins at 8:00 a.m. and runs through 12:00 noon with a short intermission available around 10:00 to allow the students time to purchase any snacks and cool off on those steamy days. Juniors 10 and under will play 3 to 6 holes each week and then receive instruction for their last 2 hours. Juniors 11 and over will receive instruction to start the day, followed by the opportunity to play 6-9 holes. Then juniors will return to the shelter to be picked up between 11:45 and 12:00.

These sessions are designed for boys and girls ages 7 to 13 who are interested in learning and enjoying the game of golf. Children must be 7 years old by at least July 1st. The price of the program will stay at $180.00 this year! This will include a year-end picnic (date TBA). Also Included 2017: your entry to The Iowa Games Golf Tournament is included and is one of our Jr. Golf days. All Veenker Jr Golfers will receive a junior golf t-shirt. During instruction all aspects of the game will be covered including: etiquette, FUNdamentals, putting, chipping, pitching, sand shots, full swing irons, full swing woods, course management, and rules of the game.
