Junior Golf Academy
Keith Lyford's junior academy has a variety of kid's golf lessons including junior golf camps, junior golf clinics, junior golf training and coaching.
Junior golfers now have a program that enables them to reach their full potential. Keith's junior development program was created to provide regularly scheduled coaching and training sessions for dedicated boys and girls who aspire to play high school, college or professional golf.
Learning a repeating and effective swing is essential if you expect to play consistently. But improving technique is only a small part of this performance-based curriculum. You will learn the skills that contribute to optimal performance.
Full-Day Junior Golf Coaching and Training Camps
Keith conducts weekend and holiday all day junior golf camps throughout the winter months. Sessions are limited to just four juniors per day and class typically runs from 9:00-3:00.
These all day sessions are grouped by age and ability level. Sessions are designed for competitive tournament players ages 12-17.
Each player's game is evaluated to determine their strengths and weaknesses, then a complete improvement plan is customized to the needs of each individual golfer. Our total game focus will produce immediate and lasting results, results you can see on the scorecard.
The all day coaching and training curriculum covers all facets of the game. Besides learning a repeating and effective golf swing, our performance-based curriculum will focus on short game, pre-shot routine, on-course strategy, tournament preparation and much more.
Juniors are accepted into the all day sessions only after a private lesson evaluation and when Keith determines that the golfer's game is at the correct level to join an existing group. Several private lessons may be needed to bring the junior's golf game up to the group's golf level.
Scheduling priority goes to the juniors that attend on a regular basis.
These co-ed classes are specifically designed for 13-17 year old golfers that are serious about taking their game to the next level. The Golf Academy at Old Greenwood summer camp was created to provide first class coaching for dedicated boys and girls who aspire to play high school, college or professional golf. Three full days of intense, proven instruction is focused on unleashing each golfer's full potential.
Groups are organized by ability level so each student learns new skills based on his/her current golf level. And individual attention is assured, by limiting class size to just 15 juniors per session and by also maintaining a 5 to 1 student to instructor ratio.
Each player's game is evaluated to determine their strengths and weaknesses, then a complete improvement plan is customized to the needs of each individual camper. Our total game focus will produce immediate and lasting results, results you can see on the scorecard.
Besides learning a repeating and effective golf swing, our performance-based curriculum will focus on all the tools that contribute to winning golf. Sessions include tips on:
||Post shot routine
|How and what to practice
|Golf specific fitness
|| Charting yardages
|Tips from the Tour
To make sure the practice-tee lessons translate to lower scores, a significant amount of class time is spent on-course. We also conduct daily competitions because they tests skills, build character, patience, courage and determination.
The best players in the world know that even a fraction of a stroke per round can mean the difference between winning and losing, qualifying or going home. That's why they utilize every technological advantage available. At The Golf Academy you'll be using the same technology as the pros.
In this day and age, proper fitness training has become essential if you hope to compete successfully against the top echelon players. At our junior camps, golfers will be trained and developed as athletes. You'll be working on increasing balance, strength, flexibility, endurance, stability, speed and agility. As a result, you'll swing more freely and efficiently.

Junior Golf Clinics
Juniors will learn golf fundamentals in a safe and fun environment. Sessions include individual instruction in a group setting so each student learns new skills based on his/her current golf level, whether just starting, an accomplished player or somewhere in between. Juniors will rotate through a series of TPI (Titlesit Performance Institute) exercise stations designed to teach youngsters motor skill development, core strength, balance and stability. Our primary goal is to create good all-around athletes that excel at golf. The junior golf clinics are taught by a certified Golf Academy teacher.
