Junior Golf Age Policy – BREC Golf
For information regarding the COVID-19 outbreak and BREC Golf Courses, CLICK HERE

Golf carts, flying golf balls, uneven surfaces, and people swinging golf clubs are the primary sources of many injuries that occur on golf courses every year.  While golf courses are a source of injuries for adults playing them, they can be even more dangerous to children who are less aware of how to properly respond to potential club swings, flying golf balls, and the sudden stops, turns, and bumps that golf carts encounter.  BREC golf courses use the following policies to promote the safest possible experiences for junior golfers.

  • Juniors age 13 and older may play any BREC golf course at any time without adult supervision.
  • 18 – Hole Courses
    • Juniors age 8‐12 are eligible to play golf anytime at any 18‐hole BREC golf course under the DIRECT supervision of an adult
    • Juniors under age 8 are not allowed on any BREC 18‐hole golf course (see exception in item #4). This includes riding in a golf cart with an adult or walking the course with an adult.
    • With direct one-to-one adult supervision, Juniors age 4 and above are allowed to use the practice greens and driving range.
  • 9 – Hole Courses
    • Juniors age 6‐12 are eligible to play golf anytime at any 9‐hole BREC golf course under the DIRECT supervision of an adult
    • Juniors under age 6 are not allowed on any BREC 9‐hole golf course (see exception in item #4). This includes riding in a golf cart with an adult or walking the course with an adult.
    • With direct one-to-one adult supervision, Juniors age 4 and above are allowed to use the practice greens and driving range.
  • Juniors age 4‐7 are eligible to participate in BREC’s Li’l Chipper Program or the First Tee of EBR Target Program which will teach and test their golf skills and knowledge of golf etiquette and safety. Successful completion of either program will allow juniors age 4‐7 to play BREC golf courses at off‐peak times, one hour after normal twilight hours and at additional hours that vary by golf course.
  • Organized Junior Golf programs including First Tee, PGA Junior League, US Kids and other organized and supervised groups do not fall under this policy.
  • Juniors age 6‐17 will be eligible to attend BREC Junior golf clinics.      
  • Golf course managers have the right to remove junior golfers from any course if they do not follow the proper etiquette and conduct, or if they do not show a general knowledge of golf skills and accepted golf practices.
  • Golf course managers have the right to remove adults from the golf course if the adults fail in their supervisory duties.
