Pro Kids members will now receive a Life Skills card from levels 1 through 4. On these cards, there will be check boxes emphasizing the life-skills and values that we try to instill in our members, who will have the opportunity to check them off with every golf class attended. Once a member has checked off all boxes on their card they will be personally invited to start the certification process by one of our golf pros. The invitation will be presented in the form of a yardage book with step-by-step instruction on how to complete certification.
Once a Pro Kids member reaches Level 5, he or she will choose a track of specialization. For this first year, Pro Kids will be offering 4 tracks: Competitive Golf, Golf Engineering, and Golf Business. Track classes will take place on Fridays from 4-6PM, allowing enough time to go off-site on certain occasions. The curriculum for all tracks will be based on 8 week projects with 2 weeks of break in between where we will welcome guest speakers and go on field trips. Pro Kids members that reach Level 5 when younger than 14 years old will automatically join the Competitive Golf track as the other tracks require members to be 14 and up.
End of the Month Tournament
Pro Kids Members only! Like any men’s or ladies club, Pro Kids hosts monthly events for its junior members (Levels 2-7). Formats vary each month but include: Stroke Play, Match Play Championships, Scramble, and Best Ball. The golf staff have gotten creative and come up with other fun formats such as our Scotland Open, Trivia Scramble, and the Colina Country Club. The staff also utilize a handicap system that allows for tournaments with several flights of ability. This system allows players of every skill level to participate by placing them in groups that allow them to compete with members of similar ability.
Youth on Course
This program allows our students to play and access Southern California executive and regulation courses at discounted rates. Pro Kids members that are par certified (Level 2) are matched with adult mentors or escorts to play local area courses. Tee times are arranged by our staff and are made available to students during school holidays and vacations. Birdie certified (Level 5) members may play any Youth on Course golf course unsupervised.
