Junior Golf

Junior Golf

If your child has previously participated in clinics or lessons, please feel free to call the pro shop for assistance in placing your junior golfer.  Please see the below descriptions of each option as well as the dates and times for each.

This summer, the five options for beginning and junior golfers at Albany Country Club include:

  • The Albany Introductory Clinic
  • Intermediate Skills Clinics
  • Private Lessons
  • Junior Golf Leagues and Area Competitions        

The Albany Introductory Clinic  (Recommended for ages 8 and under)

This option is suitable for children in their first or second year of golf.  This two-week clinic incorporates SNAG "Starting New at Golf" golf for younger beginners throughout the summer and selected elements of SNAG golf for older beginners during the first few days.  This clinic is free for all members' children and grandchildren.

Intermediate Skills Clinics    (Recommended for ages 9 and older)

 This option is suitable for juniors who have previously participated in the introductory clinics and who are eager to improve their current golf game. Juniors who sign up for these clinics should be prepared to spend approximately 45 minutes with instruction and another hour on the golf course with limited adult supervision.  This clinic is free for all member's children and grandchildren.

Private Lessons 

This option is suitable for the intermediate and advanced junior golfer. Please inquire at the pro-shop to arrange for private lessons with Jeff, Dennis or Glenn.  In between lessons, junior golfers should plan to play in the Junior Golf League and arrange additional tee times with other junior golfers. Please inquire at the pro shop for lesson rates/ fees. 

Junior Golf Leagues and Competitions 

For those juniors ages 10 and older who are interested in more competition, the Northeastern New York PGA Section conducts a series of events throughout the summer.  There are nearly 200 kids from the Capital District from a variety of country clubs and courses that compete.  For further information visit www.neny.pga.com and go to the Junior Golf tab.

For those Juniors who are not yet ready to compete at that level, the NENYPGA will also be conducting a new and innovative NENY PGA Junior League.  Details will be available at NENY.PGA.com

In conjunction with this, Albany Country Club will help prepare our Juniors by running practice sessions on dates to be determined.
