Are you currently participating in the KJGA Clinics?

We’d love to get your participant to the Par Level for spring programming. The Par Level is the second certification level. Within the KJGA Clinics, your participants are working through the PLAYer Level. In order to get to the Par Level, your participant needs to complete a few important items.

  1. Complete the Life Skills Experience & Golf Knowledge Quizzes. Coach Dean Marks will offer these at the current clinics. Please let him or Taylor Haudek ( know your participant is interested in completing these quizzes before the end of the summer 2020 clinics.
  2. Play 9-holes and turn in a scorecard to Coach Dean or Taylor. As a part of the KJGA junior clinics, your participant can play Red Arrow Golf Course for FREE!
  3. Be at least 9 years old in spring 2021

If your participant gets all of the above items complete, they’re ready for Par next year!
