Golf Evolution

Junior Elite Program

The Golf Evolution Junior Elite Program prepares 10-17 year-old golfers for high school and college golf with weekly intensive training, instruction, and practice.

About the Junior Elite Program

Since 2014, Golf Evolution has produced/taught: 

  • 3 European PGA Tour Players
  • 9 DI College Players
  • > 40 DII and DIII College Players
  • 10 Current Mini-Tour Players
  • 6 EDGA Champions
  • 6 EDGA Junior Champions
  • 4 US Kids Golf Players of the Year
  • 2 Hurricane Junior Tour Champions
  • 8 Competitors in National USGA Events

The Golf Evolution Junior Elite Program (JEP) allows you to train with the same proven methods on a weekly basis, year-round. Our 10,000 square foot indoor facility provides the perfect setting to reach every goal, whether it’s to make a high school or college team, compete on local and national junior tours, or simply to get better (and beat your parents!). We want you to be the next addition to the list above!

In 2018, we’re expanding to accept 16 junior golfers – 8 girls and 8 boys. Interested junior golfers should be aged 11-17 and prepared for an intensive, small-group training program to run for six months from November through April. Groups of four students will receive 90 minutes of weekly training and steep discounts on individual lessons on Saturday mornings over the winter to prepare for the 2019 golf season and beyond. Monthly price including a full junior membership starts at $225/month for six months, with group sizes limited to four participants.

Golf Evolution students get results: at the junior level, at the collegiate level, and at the professional level. Candidates for the GE Elite Junior Training Program must show a passion and desire to take their game to the next level.

Summer 2019

We Support our Junior Elite Golfers Throughout the Next Summer

Golfers who participate in our 2018-19 Junior Elite Program aren’t just sent out to compete in events when the calendar turns to May. We continue to support our JEP golfers by offering ongoing lessons, checking in with them or caddying for them in some events, working with them on their tournament schedule, preparing them to play in high school or college, and much, much more.
