The Fiddler's Elbow Junior Program is designed to foster a lifelong enthusiasm for golf that the whole family will share. Our resident professionals introduce children to the game of golf in an engagingly fun yet informative way.
Junior golfers can learn golf fundamentals, including full swing instruction, short game instruction, proper course etiquette, safety practices and rules of the game. By participating in specialized one-on-one instruction, on-course experiences, junior golf clinics and camps, they can continually refine their techniques, enhance their game and advance to the next level. Through the Family Add-On Membership, Club members are invited to bring junior golfers and the rest of their immediate families to enjoy playing and dining privileges.

The early development of hand-eye coordination, spatial and kinesthetic awareness, and visitation will put your junior golfer ahead of the curve.
Operation 36 (ages 7-11)
Operation 36 is a motivating road map to help introduce and develop skilled golfers. The challenge we set for our players is the score of 36 (par for nine holes). By working green to tee-box vs. the traditional tee-box to green it lowers the challenge point, and is a motivating way to learn and progress in the sport. We utilize 3 core fundamentals; ‘Play’ (measure skills, experience the game), ‘Learn’ (gain knowledge and set goals), and ‘Train’ (develop skills, receive feedback).
Operation 36 On Course Academy
Operation 36 Matches challenge golfers to shoot the target score of 36 for 9 holes. The format tests scoring skills first by starting 25 yards from the hole and allows golfers to progress back as their skills develop. Juniors will earn division badges and be enrolled in OP36 app to track progress.
