Q: Do my kids need clubs?
A: No, but we do recommend purchasing them at some point. Our professional staff can assist you with getting the right size and set and you can purchase clubs through our pro shop, just make sure to ask!
Q: Do my kids need golf shoes or gloves?
A: Nope, tennis shoes will work fine, and gloves are a player preference, but not required. Please DO NOT wear any other type of sports cleat such as baseball or soccer cleats, they will damage the turf.
Q: Would private lessons be better?
A: No. Kids (and anyone for that matter) learn best in group environments. It’s important to understand that for most new and intermediate golfers that the objective of our program is not to have them swing the club perfect, but rather to ENJOY THE COURSE AND WANT TO GO THERE.
Q: I have siblings who would be in different classes because of age, can I have them in the same class?
A: Yes, but it is not preferred. In these situations, we have the older child go to the younger class.
Q: What if we have to miss a week or two?
A: We will provide 2 make-up classes per 8 week session.
Q: Can I pay month by month instead of all up front.
A: Yes, but you’ll be required to set up automatic billing and save a credit card on file.
Q: My kids have other sports, can we only join for a month.
A: Yes, but you’ll still be billed the full amount for the session. We hire and schedule staff, schedule course and range utilization and buy materials based on enrollment. Having students drop mid program can cause us a lot of problems.
Q: What do parents do during class and matches?
A: Parents are more than welcome to watch class. We recommend taking an hour break, grabbing a drink and enjoying our patio which has the best view of downtown Spokane anywhere you can find. Parents who insist on participating in practice or offer their unsolicited coaching during practices will be asked to leave and will have their student removed from all academy programming.
Parents of students in division 1-4 are required to walk or ride with their child during matches.
