Our goal at Grey Rock is to offer a program for every level of junior golfer. These programs are set up to be both fun and challenging. Our programs are designed to take a student from the beginner level to a more advanced competitive level. Students are placed in levels based on ability and/or age and then can move up as their ability improves and skill requirements are met. Listed below is a brief description of our different levels:
 

Little Linksters
An introduction to the game for any junior ages 6-under.
   
Par Level New players ages 7-up.
   
Birdie Level Intermediate players ages 8-up.
   
Eagle Level Intermediate to advanced players ages 9-up. 
   
   


















If you have any questions about our programs or where your junior might fit in, call Brandon Whitman at (512) 921-2376. We look forward to helping all juniors enjoy "the game for a lifetime".
