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 (2)

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. Please use Chrome, Firefox, or Safari for a web browser (Internet Explorer not supported) when registering. If your junior is seeking more individual attention, consider private lessons.

Registration for 2022 PGA Junior League and Semester 1 Operation 36 are currently available. Fossil Trace Full/Half Day, 4-week and Lil’ Tykes Junior Camps will be available for registration on March 1, 2022.

Operation 36 Academy

Play.  Learn.  Improve.

Fossil Trace Golf School’s newest addition, the Operation 36 Academy, is a rapidly growing program backed by years of research. Centered around a structured curriculum, golfers develop and test their skills while tracking progress through the free Op36 app.

In an 8-week semester, golfers attend 8 hour-long academy classes and 3 on-course tournaments. This program carefully balances skill development with real on-course stroke play.

While Operation 36 caters to a wide range of ability, we recommend that your junior has some entry-level golf experience. This program is great for current PGA Jr League participants to build their skills and scoring abilities. Juniors are encouraged to attend at least two semesters a year to experience best results.

PGA Junior League

Success Starts Here

The PGA Junior League at Fossil Trace Golf School is an opportunity to play golf in a team atmosphere that is fun and inclusive. PGA Junior League teams are made of boys and girls ages 13 and under (13u). PGAJL provides a structured semi-competitive league environment similar to Little League Baseball, but students also receive guidance and instruction from the Fossil Trace professional staff.

As a developmental league, golf skills certainly vary. Our recommendation for Junior League participation is if your child can make reliable contact when playing and practicing AND walk 9 holes we have a place for them in Junior League! If your child needs further experience, and is still an occasional “whiffer,” join our Operation 36 program.
