Welcome to the Junior Golf Academy at Nehoiden Golf Club

At Nehoiden we are dedicated to Junior Golf and committed to bringing young players into the game. Our game-based curriculum is designed to encourage young kids to learn and develop skills using games and interactive exercises. We find that this approach allows kids to learn quickly and retain more – and might even inspire them to practice! Most of all though - we value FUN!

At Nehoiden, we believe in getting kids ON THE GOLF COURSE so they actually learn to play golf.  We help kids develop individual skills (putting, chipping, etc.) in a game-based FUN environment; THEN we transfer the skills onto the golf course.  Kids learn how to manage themselves on a tee box, order of play, etiquette and basic rules, how to maintain the pace, all while having fun (and maybe even keeping score). During our Spring and Fall Junior Golf Programs, we will get kids on course as space allows. During our weeklong Summer Program, kids are on the course playing actual golf holes almost every day.

The Junior Golf Academy is available throughout the peak season at Nehoiden Golf Club and taught by the experienced Nehoiden Golf Club staff and open to all juniors, boys and girls, starting at age 8 (as of 4/1/2022) 

 

Our programs aim to:

  • cover all aspects of the game including: etiquette, basic rules, putting, chipping, pitching and full swing.
  • incorporate modules using golf to communicate valuable life skills: an understanding of sustainability, nutrition, physics of the swing, and bird/animal identification on the course.

FAQs

What is the cancellation policy for the Junior Golf Programs?

Cancellations more than 2 weeks in advance of a session will result in a 50% refund.  All cancellations within two weeks of the session start date will result in no refund unless the Junior Golf spot is filled, and then a 50% refund will be processed. If Nehoiden Junior Golf Academy cancels then a full refund will be issued. Junior Golf is held rain or shine.
 

When and where do I drop off/pick up my child?

Drop off and pick up take place in the parking lot on Washington Street just across from the Wellesley College Club.  The closest GPS address is 3 Service Drive. All Junior Golf Programs begin on time so please be prompt.

Summer Only: Drop off is between 8:50 and 9am; pickup promptly at noon. There is no early drop-off.

My child does not have clubs, balls, tees or other equipment.  What should I do?

Due to COVID-19, we STRONGLY RECOMMEND that parents provide equipment. We are an Official US Kids Golf site, and highly recommend their products which can be purchased at USKidsGolf.com. Golf Digest recently posted this helpful article about the best golf clubs for kids: https://www.golfdigest.com/story/best-junior-golf-clubs  

To properly equip your child, please provide:

  • Driver
  • 7-iron
  • Putter
  • Glove (right-handed players wear a glove on the left hand and vice versa)
  • Sleeve of balls

We will provide equipment to anyone who needs it, but the safest route is for each child to have his/her own equipment.

If you have questions about what equipment to buy, please contact nehoidengolfacademy@gmail.com.

 

What should my child wear/bring?

Tie shoes!  No sandals, flip flops or loafers.  A collared “golf style” shirt. Shorts, skort or pants; no denim.  A cap. Suncreen and bug spray are highly recommended.

Please bring a full water bottle for your child, as we have limited water available at the course. 

 

My child does not have a glove, balls, tees or other equipment.

Nehoiden Golf Club carries kid’s items:  gloves, balls, tees, towels, and should you want to buy clubs, we are an Official US Kids site and can source clubs for your child, specifically fit to his/her height and swing speed.

 

What do we do if it rains?

Junior Golf takes place rain or shine.  In the event that we need to cancel a day or days for some reason such as severe weather, we will inform parents by email. 

 

How do I make contact with Nehoiden in case of an emergency?

Email nehoidengolfacademy@gmail.com or come over to the golf course and ask any Nehoiden staff member to help you find us or your child.

 

Contact: Please note that it may take up to 2 business days to return any messages | nehoidengolfacademy@gmail.com | 781-283-2756
