Junior Golf Academy's experienced teaching staff inducts young golfers aged 6–18 into the lifetime sport's eternal mysteries with a six-tiered kids' golf curriculum. In small classes of 4 to 10 tykes, instructors help beginner and intermediate students learn swing fundamentals and start to develop a short game, absorbing sportsmanlike character traits such as respect, integrity, responsibility, and a firm but friendly handshake. Advanced students begin to work on strategy and advanced shots while continuing to hone preexisting skills, such as properly accessorizing a green blazer. Although not included in today's Groupon, kids can stick with the program beyond the initial month to earn small prizes each time they graduate to a higher level or take out a pesky groundhog with their chip shot.
When newly minted golf director Orrin Vincent assembled a team of sharp course management minds in 1972, he couldn’t have expected the reach he and his brain trust would one day possess. The enterprise formed that day at a course on the banks of Lake Tahoe now spans the nation, encompassing 41 courses scattered across 15 states, from Florida to Washington. In keeping with the standard set forth 40 years ago, the organization is made up of experts with experience across all aspects of golf course management—from construction and maintenance to design and soundproofing tee boxes. Their signature flare for perfectionism amid naturally dramatic settings can be witnessed at each course in the OB Sports directory, including the Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed Monarch Beach Golf Links in California, the 36-hole Gamble Ranch in Washington, and the Arnold Palmer-designed Angel Park Golf Club in Las Vegas.
