Grass Roots Jr. Golf Foundation (GRGF) has provided small group classes and individual coaching to over 2,500 juniors in North Puget Sound since 2004.
We make learning golf fun, affordable, and meaningful.
We are known for our success with golfers ages 7 - 17 that are developing their skills and interest in golf from beginner to a player ready to compete at the high school level, or at Washington state junior competitions.
Classes are once per week, at the same time and location for 4 - 8 week sessions.
Program tuition below does not include the one time, annual membership fee of $25 for youth, $40 for adult, $50 per household.
Our signature GRGF classes are:
G.O.L.F. - a coed class for beginners ages 7 - 8 to learn the basic skills in age appropriate methods. Eight hours total coaching. Tuition is $100 (equipment provided free if needed).
G.O.L.F.E.R. - for G.O.L.F. graduates ages 9 and up that want to be ready to play recreation league golf or golf with family and friends. Sixteen hours of coaching. Tuition is $150.
G.O.L.F.E.R. 2.0 - for G.O.L.F.E.R. graduates that want to continue their development towards competitive stroke play. Twenty hours of coaching in each of 4 levels progressively (Red, White, Blue, Black). $150 tuition per level. Levels are determined by golf skill and golf score assessments.
I.M.P.A.C.T. - for G.O.L.F.E.R. graduates that not only want to play competitive golf in high school, college and beyond, but to also learn how to make a lasting "impact" on others and their community. $25 per hour of individual coaching.
GRGF welcomes financial aid grant requests from families with financial challenges.
GRGF also offers LPGA/USGA Girls Golf Program
LPGA / USGA Girls Golf is similar to our GRGF G.O.L.F.E.R. level golf skills content above, but for just girls only, ages 9 and up.
Classes help girls to learn to play golf, create friendships, and experience competition in a fun, supportive environment, preparing them for a lifetime of enjoyment of the game.
Classes are typically once per week for an 8 week session.
Girls Golf provides a solid foundation for girls who want to play for fun with friends and family, to compete at the high school, college, and/or local, state and national levels or to learn for future career purposes, both inside and outside of the golf industry.
Research has found that girls reap the biggest rewards when learning in all-girl environments – allowing them to feel more comfortable learning the game in a setting where they are free to be themselves.
LPGA-USGA Girls Golf has also developed a curriculum that utilizes proven success strategies for attracting and retaining girls in the game of golf by incorporating fun and engaging instruction and social activities both on and off the golf course.
Tuition per class is $150 per class session, not including the one-time GRGF Annual Membership Fee.
