Instruction and On-Course Play Days 

Looking to pick up the game or improve, golfers will find that they will advance much quicker if they get well coordinated instruction and direction. Baton Rouge has the distinction of having several quality BREC golf facilities at a good value to its citizens. In so doing, we want to offer our golfers an opportunity to gain a foothold into learning the game and thus begin a life long experience of enjoyment that benefits them mentally, physically, and recreationally. 

For golfers, of all ages and levels, looking for instruction from a qualified PGA Professional, BREC has Jack Terry as its golf development manager employed to provide golf instruction. Below you will find a table for rates, locations, and a schedule with available times. 

How does one go about scheduling a session with the Pro? 

  • Look at the schedule below and see what times are open for instruction. They will show if they are open or already reserved. 
  • Since demand is high, we recommend that you then contact Jack Terry via email at jterry@brec.org ; include your name, if for a junior also include age, if senior over 50; include contact information; and a short reason why you are seeking a lesson. For faster response include your text number. 
  • Once the email is received, Jack Terry will respond in short fashion; be sure to put in the subject “Lesson” and then your name 
  • If you are uncertain at this time about reserving a lesson, but have questions, send an email with “Inquiry lesson” in the subject. 
  • Once confirmed, your lesson will be finalized. Interested in more than one lesson? State this in your original email. 

What all is entailed with setting up instruction? 

  • Whether getting started or wanting to improve, the golfer needs to have an idea how to go about doing this. 
  • As mentioned above, getting in contact with our Pro and scheduling a date is a good first step; however, before doing that, it is good to know what the rates are and where the clinics will be performed. 
  • Each session is one hour in length; the golfer will determine if they want the lesson to cover only the full swing, short game, or putting, or a combination of each within the one-hour time frame. They need to determine if they wish to schedule more than one Lesson session. 
  • Instruction is generally one on one, however, if two golfers would like to get the same lesson at the same time, that can be arranged as well. For a group larger than 2 but less than 5, please contact the Pro. Keep in mind, we are exercising care due to Covid. 
  • Here are your rates: Juniors between the ages of 7 and 17 and Seniors 50 and over, the cost is $35; for the public it is $45. Includes range balls. For two, Juniors and seniors are $25 each; public $35 each. 
  • Payment, in any form, is made to BREC in the Pro Shop prior to the lesson. Gift Cards can be purchased for lessons from any BREC Golf Course and redeemed at the time of the lesson in the Pro Shop. 
  • Don’t have any clubs yet, no problem, we will provide some for you to utilize. Simply let us know. 
  • On the schedule listed below, will be the time of the clinic and its location. 

An added note for your development if you are new to the game: It is one thing to get instruction on how to swing, but for those who need an introduction on how to play and what to do on a golf course, we have sessions for that as well. On the schedule below it will show if it is an “On Course Coaching” session. These are actual instances wherein the Pro takes you on to the golf course and coaches you on how to play. Cost may vary at the different courses, but generally the cost will include the green fee & cart plus a $20 cost for instruction. These sessions will include 3 golfers and they will be paired into a group and format that allows them to learn and enjoy the round. These sessions are generally 2 ½ hours in length.

This concludes the schedule for the Fall. A new schedule for the late winter and early spring will appear here on November 22nd.

Young Golfer’s Intramural/Club Golf

There are a lot of young golfers between the ages of 19 to 25 that are very good golfers that perhaps did not earn a college scholarship but would still like to play in a team format. We are going to form a venue for these golfers to play and compete within. We are working on this and will make announcements soon on how you can get involved. Check back with us on this site.

 

Youth on the Course Program for 2021-2022

BREC Golf is excited to welcome all levels golfers, ages 7-18, to BREC’s Youth On Course program. BREC Golf Development is in partnership with the national Youth on Course program in that we seek to get juniors playing more golf, and to do so that formulates them into a competitive environment. BREC’s primary interest with Youth on Course is to create affordable access for juniors. Next, we steer young golfers to utilize their membership within YoC to utilize a service provided by the Louisiana Golf Association that permits them to establish an Average Scoring Index. With this scoring index, juniors of all levels and ages can compete on a level playing field in all our events. During our summer months we focus on instruction and evaluating each aspect of the junior’s game. All of this to create fun, affordable, and exciting competition on a local level.

To register: visit Youth on Course’s website at https://youthoncourse.org/

Once a member, now juniors need to get out and play so that they can turn in their scores. City Park is the registered course, and you will be charged $5 for your green fee. But members can play any golf course and input their scores.

 

What does the BREC Youth on Course Program look like.

During the Summer Months, there are two sessions to the development of the junior’s game.

  • Juniors will attend first an “Evaluation clinic” that will cover instruction and practice for the full swing, wedge game, and putting
  • These Clinics will be conducted at Santa Maria from 7:30am till 11:30am and designed to be intense with instruction, drills, and short practice Each junior will need to be prepared mentally and physically for the process.
  • The second part involves “On-course Coaching” and short game instruction one week following the
  • On-Course Coaching will be conducted at City Park Golf Course from 7:30am till
  • Open only to Youth on Course members; total cost $70.
  • Each session will be limited to 3 juniors based on ages or grades in school; instructors will be a 3 to 1 ratio.
  • Each junior will be evaluated during the session and a report generated These evaluations will serve to show areas the junior does well within and what they may need improvement within. It should also guide them how to then practice for the rest of the week as they get ready for the On Course Coaching.
  • The On-Course training is designed to take juniors on to the golf course and learn how to apply what they learned in the evaluation session; they will also be taught basic rules of play, pace of play, and how to score
  • Each Summer session and on-course Coaching divided into age and skill ability: Look at the dates and you will see which clinics are set up for the grade levels they will be in the following school
  • The above summer sessions are intense sessions designed to prep and further a junior’s ability to play in competitive style If a junior can manage to get the ball in the air consistently, manage 9 holes walking, and has a general understanding of the rules, then definitely enter them into a session or two.

 

Qualifier for those wishing to attend:

  • These are not brand-new beginner sessions; we recommend beginning juniors attend a Pre-Season Intro Clinic. These will be scheduled in May and are two hour Look at the schedule and reserve a spot; can attend more than once. $50 per session.
  • We highly recommend that juniors with very little to no instruction attend these pre-season clinics first before attending the Summer Reason being, juniors will be submitted to intense learning sessions and must at least be able to execute basic knowledge of the golf swing and short game. It will also be necessary for them to practice 3 to 6 hours after a pre-season clinic to help them process everything in the above Summer sessions.
  • Overall, the program is designed to promote juniors who are, or have been, involved with some level of instruction (either from a formal instructor, golf camp, family, or friend) and can perform with age- appropriate independence in practice and on course If so, we then lead them into a program that will develop their abilities to compete in golf leagues and tournaments.
  • We also wish to add that BREC already has a partnership with a nationally recognized chapter of The First Tee here in Baton Rouge. Within the Program and Instruction portion of this website is a page established exclusively to provide information to the public about this junior It is an excellent environment for juniors ages 8 to 17 of all levels, but it is ideal for juniors just starting out in the game. Its instructors are certified in offering a well-ordered curriculum in both golf development and life skills intrinsic to the game. They conduct clinics at Beaver Creek, Santa Maria, and JS Clark Golf facilities. Youth on Course differs from it in that our aspects of development are primarily toward developing juniors that wish to be more involved in competitive golf events such as league play, individual medal play, and one day participating in High School and College Intramural play. We certainly endorse juniors being involved in both of these programs.

 

Final Note if you want to attend and participate:

  • This golf program is not intended to merely be a golfing activity. This program is for those juniors who are serious about getting into the game and excelling at It is designed this way due to the nature of the game; it is a difficult game to execute and master. It requires a great deal of practice to get better. Knowing this, going into it, will enhance the junior’s experience learning the game.
  • Golf is a life time sport. There is no sitting on the bench in this sport. More time spent looking at “screens” will diminish your playing We take these aspects seriously, therefore, we conduct the program in the same manner. Our mission is to attract, capture, and develop juniors into formidable golfers. All juniors are invited. As a result, juniors need to consider their commitment to this program and what it entails. Golf is growing rapidly, we want as many juniors to participate and experience the better side of the game. The level of physical and mental capacity will be tested under the heat of summer, therefore, the junior needs to be prepared.
