What we offer
SNAG, ages 3-6 (group size 1-4 max)
At PMJA we use SNAG (starting new at golf) to introduce young new golfers to the game. SNAG is all about teaching the FUNdamantals of the game and keeping it interesting and easy. SNAG is big, bright and lots of FUN, it allows the children to achieve to such a level that they can make a smooth transition into traditional equipment.
Through the SNAG structure your child will be prepared for golf as a sport, by having fun, good basics and developing motor skills in safe group environment.
JUNIOR ACADEMY, ages 7-17 (group size 1-7 max)
For the slightly older junior golfers we have the advanced group training. This type of training is also done with the beginner junior golfer in this age category.

Individual Junior coaching
When it comes to individual junior coaching at PMJA we can provide structured one on one personal attention. Having one on one personal attention from a coach will improve the child performance and understanding of what he/she would like to achieve. Group coaching together with individual coaching will only benefit your child.
