Chagrin Valley Golf Academy
Whether you are experiencing the game for the first time, are an accomplished tournament player, or land somewhere in between, the golf professionals at Chagrin Valley Country Club can design an improvement program to fit your game. Whether through one-on-one lessons, clinics, on-course instruction or on-line tips, our team has all the tools, experience and resources to take you and your family’s golf game to the next level.
In addition, our practice areas offer many of the facilities you’d expect of a distinguished club such as ours. We feature a range with both natural and synthetic turf practice areas, a short practice hole, well-manicured putting and chipping greens as well as indoor lesson spaces available throughout the winter.
With our beautiful course and policy of no tee times, the Academy is the best way to ensure you’re getting the most out of your game and your membership at CVCC.
Some of our programs include:
Junior Golf Program:
Children under the age of 8 are introduced to the game of golf through a program called Snag Golf. Snag Golf teaches and builds fundamentals of the golf swing, all while having fun. Plastic clubs and tennis balls provide a safe environment for the kids to learn the game of golf.
Children between the ages of 8-13, who have graduated from Snag Golf, then play in our PGA Jr Golf League. The PGA Jr Golf league is a fun, social, inclusive opportunity for boys and girls to learn and enjoy the game further. Like many other recreational sports, participants will wear jerseys and play on a team.
For the more advanced junior golfers who strive to play in high school and beyond, we offer an Advanced Junior Golf Academy to teach them the finer points of golf mechanics and strategies. Once they are at this level of proficiency, they will be able to participate in our Junior Golf Interclub Program. The Interclub program offers access many of the great country clubs Northeast Ohio has to offer. The juniors will play either 9 or 18 holes based on their age and skill level.
Ladies Rookie Club:
This program is designed for beginning ladies interested in learning the game. Held in a casual clinic style setting, players are introduced to the fundamentals of the swing, the short game, etiquette and customs of golf. The clinics are offered throughout the golf season in both the morning and evening to accommodate everyone’s schedule. Rookie Club will be led by our assistant golf professional, Rachel Levi.
Personalized Instructional Programs:
Once a golfer commits to taking lessons from one of the Golf Professionals, a comprehensive interview is conducted to see what the golfer wants to achieve. An instructional program is then designed around each individual and the amount of time he or she can spend improving their game based on their personal schedule.
Sometimes, golfers of all ages benefit from one or more focused group clinics that target specific situational shots. Whether for bunkers, chips, flops, putting, high grass or hardpan shots – being on the range AND the course in a group setting is just what you need. Our team of professionals offer many different programs to focus on these areas throughout the season.
