Junior Instruction

Elmbrook's Junior Clinics are back for the 2024 season. Spring and Summer sessions are available and seem to be filling up quickly. Space is limited so reserve a spot for your young golfer today.

Start your junior golfer on a solid foundation. You'd like your kids to get excited about golf, or maybe they already are. It's important at this stage to find a golf coach who will build a relationship with your young golfer as well as build their enthusiasm for the game. Kids will learn the basics of the full swing, chipping, and putting as well as proper etiquette of the game.

Adult Instruction

Does your swing need a little clean up? Have your swing assessed and take your game to the next level.  Swing clean up works on your full swing, short game, putting, and any other area of the game you have yet to perfect.

$80/hour - Group of 2

$120/hour - Group up to 4

$150 - 1-hour lesson + 3 holes playing lesson

($250 for group of  2)

Meet Thomas Johnson


Tom has been playing golf for over 50 years.  For eleven years he studied under the tutelage of PGA Pro George Bayer (winner of 6 PGA tour events), at the Detroit Golf Club.  Tom also attended the Arnold Palmer Golf Academy at Bayhill C.C. in Bay Hill, Florida.

In 2018, Thomas started teaching junior golf at the Grand Traverse Resort Golf Academy (and still does).  Thomas also plays a vital role in the success of Elmbrook’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” League.
