Operation 36 Junior Program 
This program is designed to introduce juniors to the game in a fun, inviting atmosphere.  We start from the green and work backwards in this program.  All players will start from 25 yards out and their goal is to break 36 for 9 holes.  Once they break 36 from 25 yards they move back to 50 yards, this process continues until they reach the red tees.  
When:  Tuesday Skill Development Days choose 9am or 10am session (1 hour long) - Thursday PLAY DAY!  All juniors will play at 9am on the Rabbit Patch Short Course 9 (2 Hours Long) 
Cost is $175 for non members and $150 for BCC Members

How is PGA Jr. League played?

During the course of one PGA Jr. League game, teams play four 9-hole matches in a two-person scramble format, reinforcing the team concept and creating a nurturing environment for learning the game. Coaches can also substitute players every three holes, so that all of the golfers on each team can participate.

Every PGA Jr. League player will receive a new PGA Jr. League Game Guide, which explains the format and rules and includes fun comics and games!

Practices will be held Monday evenings at 6pm and Matches will be Sunday afternoons at 4pm.
