Vision:

Our vision is to develop University of Maryland Junior Golfers with the correct knowledge of the game while creating an environment where golf is a sport about having fun, building integrity and enjoying time spent with family & friends.

The program is designed to meet learning and development needs for players of all levels from beginners to Junior Elite players.


Mission:

University of Maryland Junior Golf Program’s main mission is to attract, maintain and grow in attendance of junior golfers.

  • To develop young golfers into golfers that understand, appreciate and thrive in the golf community as players of the game.
  • To develop golfers that desire to play at the highest levels of golf in America.
  • To develop golfers that love to play GOLF.

Our junior golf camp is designed to not only develop better golfers, but develop better athletes as well. Golf is a sport and people play sports for development of mind and body. 

Our intent is to develop junior golfers through a development model that is defined as Long Term Athletic Development.  Long Term Athletic Development is a framework that aims to develop each junior golfer in an effort to enable him or her to reach their full potential in golf and as an athlete.

Our framework is broken down into two areas:
Movement Skills
Skipping, Jumping, Hopping, Throwing, Catching, Striking

Golf Skills
Putting, Chipping, Pitching, Bunkers, Full Swing, General Knowledge
