One of the benefits of golf membership at ACC is the opportunity for early registration to Junior Golf Mini-Camp, clinics, and scrambles during the pre-registration period. Dependents of golf members, who return registration forms during pre-registration, are guaranteed a spot in the Mini-Camp and are more likely to be awarded their preferred clinic and scramble dates. Once pre-registration is closed, grandchildren of golf members and children of ACC social members may fill any remaining openings. Participation in PGA Junior League and the Academy program is exclusive to dependents of golf members*.
This program affords aspiring young juniors the opportunity to learn golf in a fun, camp-style format. Program fee covers clinics, play days, and mini parent-child tournament. To ensure the safety of our juniors, a parent or guardian is required to attend camp with each participant. A total of nine hours of instruction and on course play will be offered.
