Junior Instruction

Youth golf instruction programs are lead by Jay Appel, an experienced PGA Teaching Professional.  See our instructor page for more about Jay.  All youth instruction is held at Buena Vista Golf Course.

Youth Golf Learn & Play Program

The Learn & Play Program is a great way for children to receive basic golf instruction, while getting a chance to try their new skills on the course.  We begin with warm-ups and topical instruction at the practice areas followed by on-course play under the talented staff’s watchful eyes.  Junior players use the main course and Pee-wees use the Short Course.

Learn & Play Program fees below cover the cost of warm-up, instruction, and tee time.  GREEN FEES ARE ADDITIONAL.  Save money by purchasing a season pass, which allows you to play unlimited golf at Buena Vista (visit golfdekalb.com for rates).  The program fee also includes complimentary entry into the Annual Dekalb Park District Junior Golf Championship held on Tuesday, July 26th.

Parent/Volunteers are welcome to assist on-course play.  Complimentary carts are provided on the main course.  A volunteer sign-in sheet will be posted in the clubhouse.

Pee-wee & Junior Golf Clinics

Youth golf clinics are designed to establish a solid golf foundation while developing your child's love for the game.
