Juniors will learn the game in a weekly group (small group) class where Jordan will progress students through the 6 level Operation 36 curriculum.
The Op 36 Matches challenge golfers to shoot the score of 36 for 9 holes from 6 different yardage divisions on the course, starting at 25 yards.

Golfers in 8th -12th grade

The spring session is unique as the high school season will be underway the first week of April. Let JLGolf fine-tune your high school golfer in season! The focus will be more on shot making and eliminating big-numbers in the spring practices to help them lower their scores on the course.

2019 Rule Changes

Know the Rules!
Each previous fall/winter 2018 JLGolf newsletter has included one of the newly updated Rules of Golf for 2019! Knowing the (new) rules can save you strokes & time! Here are all of them in one place, plus a summary article from Golf Digest to further narrow down the most important changes.

Previous "Rule of the
Week" Videos

Rule 14.3 Now shows that there will be a relief "area". As you can see from above, you take club lengths around your drop line on both sides to form a half-circle as your "relief area". Penalty strokes give you 2-club lengths, free drops give you 1-club length.
