Golf is different. If a golfer breaks a rule while playing, they are expected to penalize themselves.
When a child learns to play golf correctly they, almost without realizing, learn much more than how to hit a golf ball. They develop skills that they can use throughout their lives.
The Sixtyone Golf Academy is a golf introduction, development, and integration program designed to remove barriers, both actual and perceived, to playing the game.
Sixtyone reaches out from the golf course and connects young people with golf. The traditions and culture of the game do all of the rest.
The Sixtyone Golf Academy has three phases that guide the students on their journey from hacking at golf balls on their school playgrounds to becoming complete and independent young golfers.
Students begin learning why golf is different than other sports, and that hitting a golf ball is fun.
Welcome to Golf | Rules, Etiquette & Proper Behavior | Golf Quirks, Traditions & Culture | Your Golf Heritage.
Students who accept the challenge and responsibilities begin the transition into becoming complete and independent young golfers.
Practice Area (Self-awarenes & Self-improvement) Keeping Score (Strategy & Managing Obstacles) | Course Management (Etiquette & Culture) | Fun (Enjoyment & Mental Fitness).
Students who successfully complete an Academy program become members of the Sixtyone Country Club and connected with a support network willing to share time, treasure and expertise to help them integrate as far into golf culture as they desire.
