Here’s an idea to get your pre-teens and teens away from screens during the upcoming Thanksgiving school holiday. Sign them up for golf camp. Learning this sport as a youth is something they can play the rest of their life.
A special golf camp, which targets beginners through advanced golfers from ages 9 to 14, and helps youth learn and improve his/her game will be offered from November 20-24 (No camp on Thanksgiving Day, November 23).
Students will learn how to golf and how to improve their game from PGA Teaching Professional Carlos Rodriguez at the 9-course, par-3 Heroes golf course at the West L.A. VA Campus. The Heroes Course is nicely manicured and a well-kept secret, so players rarely have to wait to tee-off.
All aspects of the game covered including grip, swing, stance, balance, teeing off, fairway play, pitching/chipping, putting out, club selection, course management, rules and golf etiquette.
The pro has more than 25 years of teaching experience. He worked as the assistant golf professional at Indian Springs Country Club in Silver Spring, Maryland, before moving to Los Angeles and the Penmar Golf Course in Venice.
Rodriguez’s golf philosophy centers on harmony between the physical and mental aspects of the golf game. He is a positive and encouraging instructor.
The camp runs from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Students may attend on a daily basis. The cost is $150 per day, which includes the green fee.
