Junior Golf & Camps

Bing Maloney Loves Junior Golfers

The Bing Maloney Golf Course is proud of its status as an official The First Tee golf facility. The First Tee is an international not-for-profit organization with a mission “to impact the lives of young people by providing facilities and educational programs that promote character-development and life-enhancing values through the game of golf.”

Our junior golf programs are three-fold, in that they all incorporate the Life Skills of The First Tee (accompanied by The Nine Core Values and Nine Healthy Habits), golf skills and athletic movements and exercises to not only help the development of the students golf game, but also create a healthy population.

The First Tee is a World Golf Foundation initiative dedicated to providing young people of all backgrounds an opportunity to develop through golf, life-enhancing values such as: honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy and judgment. In all of our junior classes we bridge these core values to everyday life and they can be used.

The golf skills curriculum is a station based curricula that helps students to discover and improve in a safe environment. We discuss putting, chipping, pitching, bunker play, the full swing and basic rules and etiquette with all ages and ability levels. Typically we have stations that are set up to help children with one specific fundamental element at a time. It is a priority of the Bing Maloney coaching staff to keep the student to coach ratio to 5:1 or less.

The third element to our junior golf program is the emphasis on not only an athletic golf motion, but a healthy lifestyle. Some of these athletic movements include: throwing a ball, jumping rope, hula hooping, balance boards, hurdles, speed ladders and much more. We have found that the children not only enjoy “playing” but have also incorporated these healthy activities into their golf game and their everyday life.

Bing Maloney is committed to providing youth golf programs that teach golfing skills, life skills, core values, etiquette and rules of the game and provide junior golf tournament competition as well. To qualify as a The First Tee facility, our staff had to have a coach fully trained to present the core values and life skills within all the junior golf programs at our facility.

Bing Maloney Golf Course offers many youth programs, including golf camps and playing programs throughout the summer.
