Camp Location: Bayonet and Blackhorse GC
Dear Parents and Golf Campers:
Thank you for signing up for the JRGA PGA Sports Summer Academy. We are excited to spend the upcoming week(s) with your junior golfer and look forward to sharing our passion for the game of golf.
Our JRGA PGA Sports Summer Academy is a unique long-term junior development program designed to bring the next generation of golfers to the sport in a fun and interactive way. This will give every junior the opportunity to enjoy golf either socially or competitively, based on his or her individual desire.
Due to Covid-19 pandemic, JRGA and Bayonet and Black Horse Golf Courses and Facilities have put in place preventative measures and updated many guidelines based on recommendation of the Monterey County Health Department. We ask parents and guardians, please wear mask. Every child will have a temperature check before they are dropped off. If they have temp over 100.4 they will not be allowed to stay.
Each day will consist of instruction, drills, on course time, games and, of course, snacks! The intent is to make sure all campers have a great week and improve their skills, knowledge and passion for the game of golf. As the camp progresses students have the opportunity to take their skills to the course where instructors and assistants help optimize the golfer’s game. Course management and etiquette are stressed each time the golfer is on the course.
Please note: Beginners will spend the majority of their time learning the game and working on the skills to be successful when they ultimately step out on the course. Skill level and instructor assessment are the determinants in how much time your golfer will spend on the course.
Unless there is a medical reason that prevents it, all golfers will be required to walk the golf course. Golfers with junior-sized clubs should be prepared to carry their bags or bring an appropriately sized pull/push cart to camp. As needed, we can provide pull/push carts for golfers with full size clubs.
Golf shoes are encouraged but not required. If your junior golfer does not have golf shoes, their shoes should be comfortable, provide lateral support and have soles that do not slip in grass (running shoes with aggressive tread designs work well).
Other optional items to make your golfer more comfortable during their time with us: sun block, a golf cap, sunglasses, a golf glove, and bottled water. Because we often experience cool ocean breezes near the end of the day, we suggest your junior golfer pack a wind shirt or sweatshirt.
PARENTS: Please print the “Medical Treatment Authorization and Waiver” form prior to start of the camp. Download the Medical Release Form here: MEDICAL-TREATMENT-AUTHORIZATION
Many thanks for your commitment to our JRGA program along with your flexibility and patience with the new protocols. See you on the first day of camp at 12:15pm at the putting green at Bayonet and Black Horse Golf Courses.
