Level 4 – Blue Belt recommended for ages 9-13
Our Level 4 program is for juniors who definitely have on course experience or are 12-13 years old with a desire to learn the game.
It is recommended, although not mandatory, that the child has completed the Level 3 Green Belt program before taking the Level 4 Blue Belt program.

- hones in on the players ability to reduce their scores incorporating introductions to recovery shots and short game creativity.
- teaches the player how to choose the correct club for each shot and further discusses strategy based on intermediate skill sets.
