JAMES LEITZ JUNIOR GOLF PROGRAM 

Mission: To provide an environment and culture to grow the junior golfer’s interest and love for the game of golf through the development of skills to negotiate the golf course in a successful manner. The array of areas to work on such as full swing, shortage, putting, mental game, club fitting, strategy and physical motion are just a few of the skills needed to play successful golf. We want to provide a learning environment that is safe, fun and stimulating. We take pride in our use of technology to improve the earning environment and speed up the improvement process. James has instructed Junior Golfers that have won 21 State Championships!
