TLC Youth Golf League





Success!  Thank you to Coach Vinny Diroff and all the youngsters who participated with volunteer parents in the revamped 2016 Youth Fall League.  What a great season and we are looking forward to building upon it in 2016. We're growing into our 2017 season!

Golf League is intended for our young golf members ages 6 and older who are progressing as intermediate and advanced golfers.  Our goal is to encourage youngsters to come out and play, meet new friends, spend time with current golf friends, earn points towards team standings and learn to play the game.  Pairings will be made by program coordinator PGA Professional Vinny Diroff and by similar ability levels.


The 2017 series is being hosted by PGA Professional & Youth Golf Coach Vinny Diroff and will consist of play rotating on all six courses at The Landings Club.  Check-in and warm-up will begin at 1:30 followed by play of up to 3, 6 or 9 holes.  

Parents will be requested to help as volunteers on the course based on Positive Coaching Alliance guidelines in monitoring pace of play and safety (of especially the younger golfers).  Parents may not coach players / children (club choice, line-up, advice, shot selection, coaching tips, playing tips)... Let the Kids play and make their decisions, it's about self-discovery, learning and having fun kid-style for THEIR round of golf, not an adult's round of golf!


Who:     TLC Youth ages 6+ with golf privileges (Youth, Limited and Full… contact Mary Morgan at TLC Ops for Youth Golf upgrade if needed.)


What:    A fun youth golf league with various formats for the 3-6-9 hole divisions, overall team points, putting / short game challenges and MORE!


Where: Rotating courses… see Golf Shop fliers & TLC webpage under GOLF/Golf Schools & Instruction Events


How?    Participants must register through Vinny by Friday Noon so staff can create pairings and touch base with host course.  Contact Vinny at 598-2596 (Marshwood Golf Shop). **


When:   Saturdays, 1:30pm Check-in/Warm-Up


Cost:      $10 / event goes towards awards and event set-up


Parent Assistant Coaches:  With TLC golf professional staffing, we will be relying on help from Parent Volunteer "Assistant Coaches" to help get groups started, help on course during the round, turn in scores to the golf shop inside scoreboard and help run a fun putting or short game challenge post-round.  Thank you for helping this program with your assistance!


Team Point Standings:  There will be a TLC ‘Draft’ in which participants will be placed on a team towards which they can earn points whenever they can play with the League.  Teams will have names and anytime a participants plays, he or she can earn points towards the overall team during the season.  We’ll have a fun season-ending party to recognize the teams and their achievements!


It’s FREE to sign up and become a part of the TLC Youth Golf League… please let Coach Vinny know if you’d like to participate this in 2017 Spring and Fall seasons just before the seasons begin.  **There is a REGISTRATION WINDOW between February 10-March 3 Spring 2017 to let Coach Vinny know you’re interested in playing in the Spring Season and he will have the Team Draft ready for Play beginning near March 4.  Anyone signing up afterwards will be added to current teams.
