Junior Programs

The Fossil Trace Trail Map

Starting at 4 years old, Fossil Trace Golf School has a path for every golfer. As our juniors makes their way through the Fossil Trace Trail Map, they’ll develop more in-depth with golf fundamentals and on-course experience.

Jr Teaser Flowchart

Many juniors repeat programs, progress to more advanced ones, or take multiple programs simultaneously. Fossil Trace Golf School is careful to ensure all program schedules do not conflict. If your junior is seeking more individual attention, consider private lessons.

PGA Junior League

Success Starts Here

Learn and play the game with friendly, and expert coaching and guidance from Fossil Trace PGA Professionals. The PGA Junior League at Fossil Trace  is an opportunity to play golf (9-hole games) in a team atmosphere that is fun and inclusive. PGAJL provides a structured semi-competitive league environment where players wear numbered jerseys during games. They compete on teams with friends in a 2-person scramble format that encourages partnerships and confidence.

As a developmental league, golf skills certainly vary, but we recommend that your junior has some entry-level golf experience. Within the games of our in-house league, we pair juniors together with similar skill levels; recreational or competitive. During games, the 9-hole course length is staggered based on skill level. If your child is a beginning golfer, we suggest Operation 36 or one of our summer Learn to Practice golf camp opportunities prior to PGA Junior League.
