Parents, you will find the best junior programs in the area here at Harbor Links, for any level of junior experience.  We have three U.S. Kids Golf Certified Instructors. Sonny DeFeo has also received Honorable Mention as U.S. Kids Golf Top 50 Teachers.  On top of that, our Director of Instruction, James Hong, is a THREE-time U.S. Kids Golf Top 50 Teacher in America, a U.S. Kids Golf Lifetime Top 50 Master Teacher, and U.S. Junior National Team Coach. James is also a Titleist Performance Institute Junior Coach Professional. 

Experience levels are based upon the following:
PAR - for beginners, intermediate/beginner skill level, playing for 2 years or less. 
BIRDIE - for intermediate level juniors who are looking to focus more on improving scoring through skills refinement, fitness, and mental training. Students who show potential for tournament level golf will be invited to join the Elite program and the National Developmental Junior program.  "Birdie" juniors may also play in our Harbor Links Invitational Tournaments, held April - October.
EAGLE/PRE-ELITE - for juniors that play on a competitive level, such as individual tournaments and high school varsity golf.

BIRDIE & EAGLE/PRE-ELITE PROGRAMS

These monthly programs are part of the U.S. National Developmental Programs, and are designed to help those juniors who wish to focus a little bit more on their golf skills, with the potential for serious play. If your child is a beginner or casual golfer, please check out the PAR Program above. 
Scoring skills development is at a premium, with time on both the golf course and the practice area.  Practices are also designed for juniors who plan to compete in the Drive, Chip, & Putt Championships. Those juniors who show the potential AND the love for serious, competitive play, can graduate to and be invited to join the Elite junior program, as well as the U.S. National Junior program, under U.S. National Team Coach, James Hong.
