Parents, you will find the best junior programs in the area here at Harbor Links, for any level of junior experience.  We have four U.S. Kids Golf Certified Instructors, with two of them, Lois Kim and Sonny DeFeo, having 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.  Both Lois Kim and James are also Titleist Performance Institute Professionals. 

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. 
ELITE - for more information, please

For the final 2 weeks, the kids test these skills out on the Executive Course with their instructors. 
- Wednesdays are FREE SUPERVISED PRACTICE DAYS, so the kids can come and continue to practice what they have been learning. These are limited to 14 students.
- Groups are limited to 6 students with each instructor to ensure individual attention. 
- There are no make ups for missed classes. Please make sure that your schedule allows your child to attend all of the sessions.

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.  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.  Juniors must pass a skills assessment before acceptance to the program.
