Button Hole Advanced Golf Program

-Providence Preparatory Junior Golf Academy at Button Hole

Our advanced golf program is geared towards youth golfers ages 10-17 that have some golf experience through participating in our Button Hole Kids classes.  All interested students are accepted, we are an all-inclusive youth golf academy.  The program lead by Shane Drury, 2022 Rhode Island PGA Junior Golf Instructor of the Year, will prepare the junior golfers for High School golf.  We have 3 major, wonderful High Schools in the city of Providence- Central, Hope, and Mt. Pleasant as well as start-ups such as Achievement First.  Also, we are less than 2 miles from one of the best municipal Donald Ross golf courses in the world, and our facility, Button Hole Short Course and Teaching Center has been recognized by Golf Digest as being the very best facility for junior golf development in the country.

The Advanced program is tailored to help our juniors develop the golf habits of hard working, informed individuals that ultimately become students of the game of golf.  The PPJGA will cover all aspects of the game of golf, such as developing solid fundamentals- Grip, Stance, Alignment, Posture, Swing Principles, as well as developing a physical and mental pre-shot routine.  The Academy instructors will explain the paramount importance of developing an excellent short game-putting, chipping, pitching, and bunker play.  Substantial time will be spent on the golf course focusing on course management and how to think your way around the golf course, also golf course etiquette, properly keeping score, and the rules of golf.  Upon completion of the junior academy the kids will have the confidence and knowledge to compete on their High School golf team.  The Providence Preparatory Junior Golf Academy has the full support of the Button Hole Golf Course and the New England PGA.  Our juniors will have the opportunity to play 9-holes of golf on courses such as Triggs Memorial Golf Course, Harbor Lights Golf Course, and Goddard Park.  The juniors will experience tremendous camaraderie and develop friendships and goodwill.  They will all realize that patience and perseverance is essentially necessary on the track to becoming competitive golfers.
