Junior Golf

 
The Bethlehem Country Club (BCC) will again offer a variety of junior golf clinics for area youth this summer.  From first-time golfers (beginners) to more experienced teenagers, BCC’s developmental programs target both recreational and competition-minded golfers ages 8 and above.  There is no charge for this six-week program.

BACK SIX CLUB

FOR NOVICE JUNIOR GOLFERS

After analyzing our role as a junior golf program provider, it became apparent that we were doing a good job introducing children who have never played golf to the game.  However, a void seemed to exist for that transition level child who has completed the series of group clinics, but has limited on-course playing experience.  Thus was conceived the BCC Back Six Club.  Holes 13 through 18 are not used by our regular patrons until after 10 a.m. most days and are available for some on-course training for novice level junior golfers.  It must be stressed that the Back Six Club is not a beginner’s introductory level program.  It is designed to familiarize novice level junior golfers with proper on course conduct in addition to honing playing skills.  Basic guidelines for participating in the Back Six Club are as follows:  sincere desire to learn about the game of golf, including rules knowledge and etiquette; the child must have basic golfing skills, i.e. the ability to score “double par” or better and to proceed at a pace of play of 13 minutes per hole or less from the forward tees; the child must be able to carry his or her own bag or be able to negotiate the course with a pull cart.

Basic guidelines for participation in the BCC Back Six Club are as follows:
  • Sincere desire to learn about the game of golf, including rules, knowledge and etiquette.
  • The child must have basic golfing skills i.e. the ability to score “double par” or better and to proceed at a pace of play of 13 minutes per hole or less from the forward tees.
  • The child must be able to carry his or her own bag or be able to negotiate the course with a pull cart.
There is no fee or pre-registration necessary for the Back Six Club. BCC Staff and adult volunteers will supervise all play.
