PRACTICE. PRACTICE. PRACTICE. We practice every day throughout the season, Monday through Friday. Our goal is to help our kids become the best golfers they can be (and have some fun along the way). We have excellent coaches on hand to help the kids learn the game and to take care of all of the logistics associated with running a major high school sports team. Throughout the season we work with the players individually as much as possible helping each player with swing mechanics, understanding proper course management, and the importance of maintaining a positive attitude. We also hold several clinics for the kids where we cover situations that all of the golfers will encounter such as bunker play, green-side execution, and the rules of golf.
The Internet is also an excellent source for instruction. Finding good instructors can be a little hit-and-miss, however. We have had very good success with the free video series on the Professional Golf Association of America’s website:

We have more than two dozen players and it is difficult to provide each golfer with the individual instruction they may need or want. If you or your child needs more help, we are happy to schedule additional time with them.

We also have partnered with Golf Professional Mike Thornton to provide discounted lessons for our kids. Mike is the former Manager/Director of Golf at Lakeview Golf Course and is a teaching professional at Boise Ranch. He has over eight years of teaching experience with golfers of all levels and was the head golf coach for the Kuna High School golf team for two years. He is on staff at Boise Ranch and is available to work with the kids most days of the week.
