Rockford Park District is offering the following four new indoor golf lesson programs for children and youth this winter at the Indoor Sports Center at Mercyhealth Sportscore Two in Loves Park.
Junior Winter Golf Academy
Junior Winter Golf Academy not only trains junior golfers on their golf game but also introduces the junior to their swing through video. Each of the sessions is broken into various training segments. Each week will have a classroom period, a full swing period and some short game or golf workout and stretching session. The classroom sessions will include fun games, brief intro to rules and life lessons learned through golf.
LPGA-USGA Girls Winter Golf Academy
Offered for the first time this winter! This program offers a fun approach to long term player development, with the hope that girls will continue to play golf socially or competitively.

We will also play fun games, go over rules, and touch on life lessons learned through golf. This program is designed to accommodate all ages and skill levels. Funding provided by the Jane Lyons Foundation.
