Village Green Golf Club team is part of the 1st Tee of Sarasota/ Manasota PGA Jr. League. Coaches, Sean and Erin Martin are PGA Professionals with over 35 years of teaching/coaching experience. Sean and Erin have worked developing several successful junior golf programs at Capital City Club, Atlanta Athletic Club and U.S. Kids Golf prior to taking ownership at Village Green. Sean and Erin understand the importance of making golf an enjoyable experience for juniors while reinforcing technique and lifelong skills in the game of golf.
PGA Jr. League Golf is a fun, social, and inclusive opportunity for boys and girls ages 7 – 13. Players cannot turn 14 before July 31, 2023. Utilizing the popular scramble format PGA Jr. League creates a nurturing environment for learning the game. As with other youth sports, participants wear home and away-numbered jerseys and play on teams with their friends. We are open to juniors of all skill levels.
The VG team practices will be split to help players receive more individual attention with “clinic-style” instruction and play the league format with the team on the course during each session.
