Description of Program: Val Halla’s Middle School Golf Program is changing slightly in 2020, aiming to operate more similarly to a High School Golf team. The Middle School Golf team will have an instructional practice every Tuesday followed by a competition/play day on Thursday. During Tuesday’s practice, juniors will receive hands on instruction from their coaches at Val Halla Golf Course. This may include time spent on the Driving Range, Chipping Green, or Putting Green working on their game. Every Thursday the juniors, that are golf course ready, will participate in a match against their teammates. These matches will be assigned by the coaches based on playing ability and may range from individual matches to team matches. Our hope is to give Middle School golfers a true golf team experience, one that many of our juniors will experience once they get to High School. Kids of any playing ability are welcomed in this program, as the coaches will tailor their instruction to the playing ability of each junior. Beginners are highly encouraged and welcome to join!
