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 runs March to May, the Summer Season runs June to July, and the Fall Season August to November. So, no matter the time of year, your junior can be improving 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 on them, please contact the proshop at 770-382-1611.


For 7-13 year olds, our fall supervised practice has been divided into two categories:
  • Beginner-This means 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 this summer.
  • Once a junior is 14 & older, we suggest more individual & small group instruction which we tailor to each junior’s level.
This program runs from Tuesday, August 18th thru Tuesday, October 6th.  Cost is $160 for Members and $185 for Non Members.

The Scratch League is designed for Juniors looking to hone their skills out on the golf course.  The premise behind the league is to teach players how to shoot 36 or better for 9 holes.  Players start 25 yards from the green and once shooting 36 or better they move back to 50 yards (Then 100, 150, 200, 250, Red Tees, Gold Tees, White Tees, Blue Tees & Black Tees).  Juniors receive a sticker or "flag" after they complete each tee.  

League runs from Thursday, August 20th thru Thursday, October 8th.  Cost is $160 for Members and $185 for Non Members.
