Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ

Q. Will there be make-up days in case we have to take a family vacation or something similar?
A. No. Students may miss a day or two but there will be no make-up days or pro-rating of tuition for lost days. If there is extreme weather, a rain day make-up shall be scheduled on the last week of class.

Q. What are the recommended ages?
A. Ages 7 to 17.

Q. Does my student have to be a beginner?
A. No, in this program students are grouped according to ability so they can progress from whatever abilities they currently have. Beginners are welcome, along with more advanced players.

Q. What should my student wear?
A. Shoes are a most important consideration, athletic shoes are the best. No opened toe shoes or sandals. And no cleats. Shirts that do not interfere with swinging a club should be worn (tee-shirt or collared golf polo shirt are great.) Shorts, pants, or slacks are fine to wear. Sunscreen, a hat or visor can be worn if it is bright outside.

Q. Where should we meet on the first day?
A. Back patio of the clubhouse near the driving range. (West side of the clubhouse.)

Q. Is there homework?
A. No formal take-home paperwork is assigned, but we do encourage students to practice as much as they can during the week. They will progress much faster if they do. A free punchcard is included with all registrations to encourage this. Students can also putt for free or buy range buckets to hit at the driving range.

Q. Does my student need golf clubs?
A. Yes, it is good for students to learn how to handle and use golf clubs. If you are having trouble finding clubs, we can help you locate loaner clubs or affordable new or used clubs for your juniors to use.

Q. Can you help us measure my student for new golf clubs?
A. Yes, we can help your child get fitted for new or used clubs. Typically we like to work with them for a couple of classes to determine their ability which affects the kind of clubs they can handle.

Q. What is the format of the lessons?
A. Lessons consist of supervised instruction tailored to your student’s abilities. Most instruction and drills are held at the practice range and driving range. With a few visits to the golf course. The final competitive tournament will consist of playing a few holes on the course.

Q. Can family members watch?
A. Family members are welcome to drop students off, or wait during the lessons. Many parents hovering around the practice area is distracting to students, but we allow the family to be present as they see fit. Clubhouse patio and indoor seating is available during lessons.

Q. Is this program at both locations?
A. Yes, there is a separate academy at both Crane Field and Remuda. Al Haag will be directing at Remuda and Todd Heugly will be directing at Crane Field. (Classes are not interchangeable, students will have to decide which location to attend at registration.)

Q. Can students sign up after class has started?
A. Yes, unless classes have filled up. Tuition will not be reduced or prorated for late registrations.

Q. What if a student decides to drop out after only a few classes?
A. If for any reason you feel your expectations were not we will give you a full refund or course credits. We want to make sure you feel secure knowing the academy purchase is risk-free. Our #1 concern is for your student to have a fun summer and learn the great game of golf. If leaving for any other reasons, such as moving, we can arrange a fair pro-ration as mutually decided upon.
