The Casey Nakama Junior Golf Development Program offers year-round instruction by Aloha Section PGA Hall of Fame professionals to juniors of all skill levels. The beautiful Olomana has dedicated every Saturday afternoon to our juniors for course time.
Introductory session: Over the course of 8 weeks, juniors are exposed to the basic rules, fundamentals, and etiquette of golf. This program meets on Saturdays (10:30 AM – 11:30 AM) or Sundays (9:00 AM – 10:00 AM). The 8 hours cost $223, which includes a Casey Nakama Junior Golf collared shirt and golf cap. At the discretion of the instructors, juniors continue to Session I.
Session I: Here, juniors learn more rules and etiquette, as well as the procedures for playing in a 4-some. This 8-week course meets on Saturdays (11:30 AM – 1:00 PM), or Sundays (10:00 AM – 11:30 AM), for a total of 12 hours at different cost intervals, depending on entry. The cost for new juniors is $267, and includes a Casey Nakama Junior Golf collared shirt and golf cap. The cost for juniors who already have the required collared shirt and cap is $222.
Advancement to Session II is based on improvement in the golfer's skill level and with successful completion of our tournament qualifying score.
Casey Nakama developed this instructional system so juniors could have fun while learning the basic fundamentals and etiquette that are essential to enjoying the game of golf.
This system has been implemented by programs held at Pearl Country Club, Hawaii Kai Golf Course, Waikele Golf Club, and the Oahu Junior Golf Association Developmental Program (OJGA).
Session II: This session focuses on short game development. Returning juniors will continue to work on their skills and endurance in preparation for tournament play, and work toward attaining their “White Cap” status. Session II is an 8-week course, meeting Fridays (4:30 PM – 6:00 PM) at a cost of $240, or Saturdays with 5 weeks of instructional time (2:00 PM – 3:30 PM) and 3 weeks of course play (3:30 PM – 5:30 PM) at a cost of $230.
White, Black, and Red Caps: Those juniors who qualify by attaining “White Cap” status in Session II can continue their instruction to attain their “Black Caps" and "Red Caps.” This session focuses on long game development, meaning tee boxes are set at age appropriate distances, depending on the age of the player. Strategy, golf course management, and club selection are emphasized.
This session is an 8-week program on Fridays (4:30 PM – 6:00 PM) at a cost of $240, or a 9-week program on Saturdays (3 weeks of instructional time from 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM, and 6 weeks of course play, from 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM) at the cost of $240.
