To the Charlevoix County Junior Golf Program
The Junior Golf Program is well into its 2nd decade of teaching golf skills to area youth. Because of its unique features and successful history, the program has been rated among the top 13 Junior Golf Programs in the country by the National Association of Junior Golfers. The Charlevoix Program was also featured in a recent golf periodical that identified the Nation's most successful programs.
Dean Davenport has served as its director since the inception of the program in 1994, and the continuity of the program is the reason for its success. The programs emphasis is to teach life's lessons through golf. While learning golf skills, juniors are exposed to personal traits that lead to success in life.
The Charlevoix County Junior Golf Association will provide golf instruction for youth eight through seventeen years of age, stressing proper fundamentals, golf principles and rules, with an emphasis on personal traits that make for a successful life.
The nature of the golf game is conducive for teaching and emphasizing personal traits that can become lifetime skills. The program teaches more than proper golf skills. Through each lesson, emphasis is on developing honesty, responsibility, self control, respect for others, confidence, empathy, patience and social skills. All of this, plus the excitement of working with community youth continues to inspire all of us, the teaching professionals, our adult mentors and our Junior Golf Board of Directors.
