Welcome to the Texas Team Junior Golf Program. Our goal is to provide parents with the resources they need to create a positive learning experience for all players from ages 3 - 17 years old. We have a curriculum to take every skillset to the next level from brand new beginner to an elite player. Our programs run year round in Spring, Summer, and Fall with a bit of a break for winter.
Introducing your child to golf is one of the greatest gifts you can share with your child. Golf is a game that can be played for a lifetime, it will help your son/daughter make new friends and learn about important values like hard work, delayed gratification, honesty and etiquette in a fun and exciting way.
Junior golf development is heavily reliant on appropriate instruction and proper group assignment. It is essential for a junior golfer to be properly classified. This allows our coaches to guide players through our 6 level 12 skillset program. Juniors are encouraged and earn badges for demonstrating competency in each skillset at the appropriate level.
Our staff is here to support you. If you would like to schedule some time to discuss a plan for your child or ask additional questions you can schedule that here:

Question: We don't have golf clubs... do you provide them?
Answer: Yes, we have you covered. We have all sizes of clubs both right and left-handed.
Question: What skills will my child learn?
Answer: Students learn the fundamentals of golf that are necessary in the development of any golfer. We incorporate simple cues to teach: stance, grip, posture, alignment, putting, chipping, pitching, full swing, the language of golf, parts of the golf course, rules and etiquette. Beyond golf, each lesson also focuses on a life skill. We promote sportsmanship and foster good character by Teaching, Enforcing, Advocating and Modeling the six pillars of character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.
Question: My child has played golf before. Will Texas Team Junior Golf classes enhance their current skills?
Answer: Texas Team introduces concepts and fundamentals that are beneficial to all children, regardless of their current skill level. With our 6 level program, we are sure to find the right challenge for your child. If they have played golf before, it’s even more reason to have them sign up for a class.
Question: What is the inclement weather policy?
Answer: In the event of inclement weather, Texas Team will ALWAYS still have class rain or shine. We use an inside space for class during inclement weather. We have many inside lesson plans and activities such as putting, rules of golf and etiquette.
Question: Why do kids like to participate in sports?
Answer: Research will defend that the number one reason for both girls and boys is to have FUN. Kids have fun playing sports when they can interact with their friends. Texas Team's programming provides a safe learning environment in which several players can be instructed at once, creating a positive social climate that resembles more of a team sports atmosphere versus an individual.
Question: Why do kids stop participating in sport?
Answer: Children are more likely to quit playing if they have low perceptions of their competence. The Texas Team Coaching System has been modified to fit the needs of new learners but still contains the aspects in traditional golf. These modifications to equipment and games provide opportunities for any new learner to find initial success, and more likely to be coming back for more!
