The Academy at Del Mar Golf Center

The Del Mar Golf Center's Junior Academy is based on a comprehensive Long Term Athletic Development model. This program strives to foster a love for the game, develop athleticism and create skills to become an outstanding golfer.

Weekly classes include 45 minutes of golf training and 45 minutes of athletic development.  Small class sizes (6-1 ratio or less) ensure your young athlete receives individual attention from our golf and athletic training staff. 
Similar to Martial Arts, we incorporate a grading system in which your young athlete must pass a proficiency test every few months to move to the next level.  Golf abilities are indicated by hat color and fitness abilities are indicated by wrist band color.
The Academy is open to all young athletes interested in developing their golf and fitness abilities.

At Del Mar Golf Center, we offer a variety of instruction for our Junior golfers including private lessons, drop-in classes, camps over the Summer, and after school programs in the Fall.  Click here to learn more about the Junior Golf at Del Mar Golf Center
