The Junior Lesson Program at Muskego Lakes CC has been the most popular junior golf program in the Milwaukee area for most of its 43 years of existence.  This program has received awards of excellence from the PGA of Wisconsin, Golf Foundation of Wisconsin and the National Golf Course Owners Association. These awards are due to many factors that include: constant changes based upon suggestions, limited class size, minimum one hour lessons (not ½ to ¾ of an hour like most programs) one teacher per 14 students, hands on individual help at each lesson, parental involvement and lessons that include playing golf at least 5 times as part of the total learning experience.  Our 8 Junior Lesson Programs are available for children ages 6 to 17.  

Lead instructor, Brandy Johnston is an LPGA member, as well as the golf coach for the Muskego High School boys golf team and the Franklin High School girls team. 

In our continuing effort to provide the best Junior Golf program in the area, we are making some changes for the 2019 season. 

CHANGES FOR 2019

While keeping the same types of classes we had last year, we are going to group them differently and hold all classes on Tuesdays - except for our NEW 5-week Friday evening Parent/Child lesson program, and our NEW PGA Junior League.

A maximum number of registrants has been set for each class.

The Advanced group and the High School girls will play 9 holes. All other groups will play for a designated amount of time, and can play as many holes as they wish before the time is up.

A “helpful hints” sheet for scorekeeping will be designed over the winter and provided to all parents when they are scorekeeping.

Parents will sign-up for scorekeeping duties via a Google doc that will be emailed to all parents closer to the program start date.

Lesson times will have a 15 or 30-minute gap between groups to allow for a better transition between lessons.

New roll call procedures have been established to allow more time for teaching. These will be explained to all groups on the first day of class. 

Due to July 4th being a Thursday, we will have a lesson that week.

The Club Championship will now be for the Advanced group and High School girls ONLY. Instead of playing the last two weeks, we will use the best 3 scores of the season.  The golfers with the lowest average will be the winners in their respective flights.  Winners will be announced at the Parent-Child Tournament and Banquet.

SCHEDULE  

**Please note:  The first week of class will be held on Thursday, June 20th.  Classes will then be held on Tuesday’s for the remainder of the season.

Pee Wees will have a real treat learning to play golf with a specially designed system for the beginner golfer. It is called "Snag Golf." It is very hard for a younger person to swing a metal club with a small clubface and accomplish much more than poor contact and ground balls. Snag Golf is a full system with training aids. We supply the clubs that have a plastic head that is four times larger than a regular club. The balls are a smaller version of a tennis ball. This makes for ease of contact and flight. This system will be shown to you at the REQUIRED MEETING for all new registrants.

NOTES – All Classes

Parent scoring participation is an absolute necessity for the Muskego Lakes Country Club Junior Program to be successful. This is why we charge a higher price for those kids where the parent cannot score-keep. Your assistance with this important facet of our program is greatly appreciated. Failure to show on your scoring date will prevent a foursome of children from playing on that date. Please, you are responsible for obtaining a substitute scorer if you are unable to meet your obligation.

Parents Meeting: Wednesday, May 8th or Thursday, May 16th at 6:30 PM. One-time attendance is required for parents whose child is new to the program. Optional for parents of returning golfers who may have questions or concerns.
