Junior Private Instruction Rates (Ages 10-18)

Playing Lessons
On course instruction is a crucial component of learning to score. Students can book time to go on course and pay the private lesson rate for the time taken on the golf course. It is recommended that the student book 2.25 hours for 9 holes. Students can use one 45 minute lesson on the golf course as long as access to the golf course is available. Any golf course charges will be incurred by the student. One instructor can accommodate up to four students. Any additional per person charge for the group lesson is waived.

Single Lesson: $75

All lessons are 45 minutes and include video analysis review that the student has access to after their lesson. Other technology may be used at the discretion of the teacher, such as Flightscope launch monitor, BodiTrak pressure mat, FocusBand mental training, and Blast Motion stroke analyzer.


The mission of the Junior Elite program is to provide competitive junior golfers a unique training environment with their peers that focuses on skill development, mental training, and practice techniques needed to play golf at a high level.

For competitive golfers age 10-18: A competitive golfer is defined as someone participating in junior golf tournaments, PGA Junior League or High School golf. Kids in the program are separated into small groups, called pods, based on age and ability.

Classes will be conducted at Barrington Golf Club, Aurora, Ohio, in the spring and summer. Fall and Winter programs are conducted at the Barrington Racquet Club.

Junior golfers will meet once a week in a class setting to learn skill development and practice techniques. These classes can be, and recommended, supplemented with private lessons that focus on improving technique. Here is an example of the spring classes and pricing. This is just an example and subject to change. 

A comprehensive, year long program that is broken down in to Four Quarters.

  • Winter Quarter: The first quarter, Winter, begins mid-January and runs through March. The winter program focuses on improving the junior golfer’s fitness, injury prevention, full swing technique, putting technique, wedge technique and wedge distance control.
  • Spring Quarter: The spring quarter, focuses on ball striking and short game technique and feel. Spring begins mid-April and runs through June.
  • Summer Quarter: The summer quarter continues where the spring quarter left off, developing the skills for improving scoring. Summer begins in August and runs through September.
  • Fall Quarter: The fall quarter begins with assessment of the junior golfers game and fitness with a focus on recovery and injury prevention. Fall begins in mid-October and runs through beginning of December.

US Kids golf learning program (Ages 6-12)

This program is currently limited to members of Barrington, both golfing and social.

The U.S. Kids Golf Learning Program is a proven method to introduce golf to young players. The program becomes more difficult as players advance through each of the five levels, and the Level 1-5 booklets provide the framework for both coaches and parents.

The Level 1 Instructional Booklet mixes kid-friendly instruction with on-course play that is suitable for all beginner golfers. The booklets provide instruction and examples of forms and skills, and each level has checkpoints in five core areas: Putting, Around the Green, Full Swing, Knowledge and Scoring. As an incentive to advance through all the levels, players earn an achievement pin each time they complete one of the checkpoints. It’s consistent, goal-oriented and fun!
