Junior Golf Equipment
We are committed to providing our junior members with the finest quality golf equipment. The U.S. Kids Golf program and The Callaway Junior Club Program are aimed at beginning junior golfers from the ages of five to fifteen. A 5 – 7 piece set range in price from $150-$350. Junior golf bags and individual clubs are also available.
When choosing a set of golf clubs, make sure they are of reasonable quality. There are many different factors to take into consideration, such as the weight, balance, length, shaft type and flex, grip size and club head size. Habits start early on in a golfer’s life. Clubs that are too heavy and too long will affect theses habits negatively.
For the Parents
The Restaurant at the golf course is a great place to relax and enjoy a lunch and drink special while you wait. Outdoor seating is available, with its scenic ocean views. The restaurant is always open to the public. Enjoy a 1 hour weekly reprieve on our patio.
