Aspen Junior Golf kicks off new season, new program

Aspen Times Staff

It’s that time of year again.

The Aspen Golf Course now open and Aspen Junior Golf is ready to kick off its 2006 season.

Registration for all of this season’s programs begins on Monday. The first offering of the season is an after-school program, which begins Friday and runs through May 26.

Sessions are offered on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and cost $15 per session or $40 for a full week. Each session is limited to 20 juniors.

The summer junior golf program begins June 13 and runs through August 15. The cost for each participant is $175, which includes two days of instruction each week, a T-shirt, three rules tests during the summer and unlimited use of the junior golf range – including access to clubs, range balls and putting and chipping areas. Participants also get to play on the golf course during instructional sessions and have full access to the Aspen Junior Golf club house where lockers are available.

AJG is again offering its popular Junior Tour in the Rockies, which allows juniors to compete against each other once a week at different local courses and awards trophies for respective age division winners at the end of the season.

Last summer, more than 70 juniors competed in the seven-week tour, held on Wednsesday nights and played on courses from Aspen to Rifle. The sign-up deadline for the tour is June 16; the first tour stop is set for June 21.

The club is also launching a free valley-wide beginner’s program called Kids 4 Golf. The free instructional sessions begin on June 28 and run through July 26. The sessions run each Wednesday from 9-11 a.m. and are open to juniors between the ages of 6-17 who are new to the game.
