What People Are Saying About Our Young Guns Program

“The Mike Bender Golf Academy Junior Champions/Young Guns Program is without a doubt the best long-term golf advancement training program you can participate in. The well thought out and designed weekly practice agenda really helps the player understand what they are doing. There is a natural progression at all skill levels. The coaches are knowledgeable and focused on improvement with every student. They know how to engage every type of personality and most of all analyze each player and develop and individual plan for success. Ainsley, our daughter, has attended the academy for two years and loves every minute she spends there. We highly recommend that you too consider giving your child the best possible chance to enjoy and learn the game of golf at the Mike Bender Golf Academy.”

– Greg Mann, parent of Junior Champion/Young Guns participant

The Mike Bender Golf Academy’s Junior Champs/Young Guns program offers an incredibly unique learning environment for motivated and talent junior golfers.  The program provides an opportunity for passionate junior golfers to practice alongside each other during group sessions, while also enjoying one-on-one private instruction from one of the Academy’s world-class instructors.   
The instructors at the Mike Bender Golf Academy each have the ability to sequentially and strategically work with each individual junior golfer to elevate their game and get the most out of their individual talent.  They have a wealth of experience in developing top junior golfers and have been recognized nationally for their success.
My son participated in the Junior Champs/Young Guns program for the first time last year and his development was accelerated dramatically because of the time he spent participating within this program.  If you are looking for a learning environment that maximizes your child’s talents, and your son or daughter is passionate about the game of golf, and is willing to practice hard to achieve success you will not find a better place to accomplish this than the Academy’s Junior Champs/Young Guns program.
