Grow Golf Now @ Greenville, SC

Grow Golf Now began operating in Greenville, SC in the Fall of 2013 under the direction of Doug Brown. Doug and George have worked closely with head golf professionals at multiple public and private golf facilities in the Greenville area. These efforts resulted in growing the program from initially 20 kids at one golf course to being able to consistently serve hundreds of children and families at multiple locations around the Greenville area throughout the year. In Greenville, Grow Golf Now currently partners with the YMCA and City of Mauldin Recreation.

The Family Team Series - Developmental & Fun!

The Family Team Series junior golf program is designed to introduce the game of golf to families and children ages 5-14. The idea is for the kids learn and discover the game through play which takes place on the course. Children are put into groups of 4-6 players and the parents serve as caddies, guides, mentors and of course fans. The focus of the Team Series is on spending time together as a family, making new discoveries, and most importantly... having FUN!

In Greenville, the Family Team Series is normally offered in the Spring & Fall. But since our 2020 Spring season was cancelled due to COVID-19, we are offering a Summer Team Series program instead.

Family Learn & Play/IMPACT Clinics

At Grow Golf Now, our focus on instruction is IMPACT - learning how to make better contact with the golf ball for optimal results. We help children and families learn how to train their bodies and their minds to become stronger, more flexible, and to move with better mobility. These things lead to reduced tension, improved agility and ultimately increased clubhead speed... hitting farther and straighter! 

From a physical fitness perspective, our focus of IMPACT Clinics is on improving balance, lower body stability, hip and shoulder mobility, as well as hand and wrist flexibility which all work together to culminate into the correct position at impact. To help us accomplish the ultimate impact position, we implement multiple Swing Balance tools from Tsunami Bar Sports. We also lead group clinics with a focus on golf fitness and exercise that is beneficial to golfers of all ages.

 

To address the mental & skill developmental side of the game, our Learn & Play Clinics provide opportunities to both learn new skills and then directly apply them on the course. These programs are designed for entire families, golfers and non-golfers alike, to participate, learn, and play TOGETHER.
