​​​~Classes run for the entire year.  We make every effort to keep them outside but may be moved inside at the discretion of GGDC staff.

~Enrollment is rolling, meaning you can register at any time.  You don't have to wait for the beginning of the month to enroll.  If you can't find a class that has availability, please contact us and we will make every effort to find a spot for your child.

~Prior to enrollment there is a mandatory sit down between parent/guardian, junior and GGDC staff.  This meeting will be used to appropriately place junior in the right class, as well as clarify expectations and goals.  Meeting will be no longer than 15 minutes and is done at zero cost.

​~Students will be asked to sign a conduct agreement relating to attitude and effort while in class.

​~Student to teacher is kept at a strict 6:1 ratio.

​~Students will be given a simple homework assignment each week relating to the character trait for their given level.  Students must complete assignment before being allowed into class.  Each student will be kept 100% accountable for homework assignments.  

​~To pass each level, a student will be required to pass a short written test, displaying concepts learned in that level. They will also be required to physically demonstrate the skills learned at that level.  If a student fails to pass the test, they must wait for GGDC to approve them to try again.  

​~Remember... the goal is not to create successful golfers who are kids but to create successful kids who are golfers.
