Junior Academy

The Cartersville Country Club Junior Academy is run by Head Golf Professional Gathon Garriga, PGA. The Junior Academy has a clear path for your junior golfer to improve their golf game as far as they would like. From beginning golfers who have never picked up a club to advanced tournament golfers, our programs are built to improve every juniors' golf game. We run our junior programs in 3 seasons; the Spring Season is March to May, the Summer Season is June to July, and the Fall Season is August to November. No matter the time of year, your junior can improve their game. Below is a brief description of each of our Junior Programs that we offer. If you are interested in getting your Junior Golfer into any of the Junior Academy Programs or if you would like more information, please contact the proshop at 770-382-1611.


For 7-13 year olds, our fall supervised practice has been divided into two categories:
  • Beginner-either just getting started with golf or practices/plays no more than one time a week outside of practice/lessons
  • Intermediate/Advanced-plays & practices at least twice a week outside of practice and is currently or plans to play more than a few junior tournaments
  • Once a junior is 14 & older, we suggest more individual & small group instruction to which we tailor each junior’s level.
This program runs on Tuesday evening starting September 28th through Tuesday, November 2nd .  Cost is $150 for Members and $200 for Non Members. 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm.

The Junior Match Play League is designed for Juniors to work together in order to learn to play the game of golf using a team model. Similar to PGA Junior League, the Junior Match Play League uses teams of 3 in a scramble format playing against each other in matches. This is a great way for beginners to learn about actually playing golf with several intermediate players with more experience.

League runs on Thursday evenings from September 28th-Thursday, November 4th.  Cost is $150 for Members and $200 for Non Members.
