  • Creation of player development clinics during the month of May designed to new golfers to the game of golf, and get current players playing better/longer. Onsite clinics range from $0 to $50 for adults and juniors 17 years of age and younger are free.
  • Each facility should develop its own on-site appropriate pricing structure for this program and ensure any programming is in accordance to state and local CDC gathering guidelines and protocols (to include social distancing and the like).
  • Instructional programming for the Month of May should focus on pre-swing fundamentals. Preparation is the key to success. As Jack Nicklaus mentions, “85% of the golf swing occurs before you swing.” Grip. Posture, Ball Position, Aim, Mind-set and Tension Level.
