After School Junior Golf Program will kick-off in September
It’s official. The Challenge Course, Himalayas and putting green at International Junior Golf Academy’s (IJGA) Old Carolina are finished are ready for play! The IJGA coaches, interns, staff and CEO Andrew Summers christened the course with a round of golf recently. Reminiscent of St. Andrews of Scotland’s Old Course, the par-3 Challenge Course, rolling Himalayas and large putting green will be used for training by the IJGA Academy student-athletes and the After School Junior Golf Program students. Players can sharpen their short game skills and play the course in either direction for an added challenge.
The on-site course project is part of the rebirth of IJGA and campus transformation taking place at Old Carolina. IJGA’s on-site amenities include the recent $2 million renovation of the Performance Training Center which houses the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate & Studio, indoor hitting bays, indoor chipping and putting area, recreation center, Performance Fitness Center and Fuel dining hall.
The After School Junior Golf Program is slated to kick-off Monday, September 10, offering local juniors golf instruction on Mondays and Thursdays, 4:15 – 6:15 p.m. The community will be invited to an Open House/Grand Opening on Labor Day, Monday, September 3, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., to play the Challenge Course, Himalayas, experience the large 18-hole putting green, use the indoor hitting bays, short game area and enjoy a cook-out. Contests will include closest to the pin and lowest score for 18-holes on the putting green.
Monthly and Annual memberships will be offered to students ages 8 – 18, which include the weekend use of the outdoor course, indoor facilities and lunch at Fuel.
Stay tuned. More information to come regarding the program!
