Junior Golf Academy at Old Greenwood in Full Summer Swing! – by Nick CisikThe best place to learn golf in Lake Tahoe this summer is at Old Greenwood Junior Golf Academy. Whether you DVR the entirety of the Masters tournament as to not miss one stroke or have never once set foot on a putting green it is safe to say that we have all heard about the benefits of learning the game of golf. "It is such a mental game" is what I have always heard, but have always struggled to grasp what that meant exactly. Now that I have some life experience under my belt, I believe (with cautious optimism) that I now understand how golf's mental aspects do breed a specific skill set as it pertains to tackling some of life's most challenging obstacles, not excluding one's own self. Why not give the gift then, of this game and all its benefits to your children, introducing them early in a fun, safe environment? This is exactly what the Academy at Old Greenwood provides and the glowing reviews are in!
With children of all abilities and ages welcome, the Academy at Old Greenwood is the place to learn the game of golf this summer. The academy offers several different approaches to your child's involvement and development. Private instruction is available, but there is also the golf camp and golf Summer Session options. The golf camp is offered in full or half day blocks, running daily, whereas the Summer Sessions are two hour time slots offered twice a week differentiated by age groups. For example, the Cyclone sessions (ages 5-7) takes place from 9-11 AM, Thursdays and Sundays.
