Dear Parents, Grandparents, Guardians and Junior Golfers,

On behalf of the South Riding Golf Club, I’m proud to announce the 2007 South Riding
Golf Club Junior Golf Program and formation of the South Riding Golf Club Junior
Tour. Our goal with the SRGC Junior Golf Program is simple:

          Provide a safe, fun and educational environment for Junior Golfers
                               to learn to the game of Golf.

By participating in the SRGC Junior Golf Program, your child will be exposed to all
facets of golf through a series of Spring, Summer and Fall Group Clinics. Participation
in these clinics is open to all Juniors, ages 5 – 13. Registration will open for the 2007
Junior Golf Program on March 1, 2007.

On Sunday, April 15th, the South Riding Golf Club will offer a FREE Junior Clinic to
all interested participants as a way of introducing our staff and “jumpstarting” the Junior
Golf Program. During the summer sessions, in addition to simply participating in the
group clinics, junior golfers can “become a member” of the South Riding Golf Club
Junior Tour and track their progress through the US Kids Golf Learning Program. This
program allows each junior player to advance through different levels of achievement at
his or her own pace. Instructional methods, including instruction booklets and specific
advancement criteria, are designed to help each child have fun and succeed at every level.
Specifics of South Riding Golf Club Junior Tour membership will be outlined in this
publication.

Our Junior Program will be led by Dave Barton, SRGC First Assistant Professional.
Dave has recently transitioned from a career as a Naval Officer and comes to us from the
Golf Academy of the Carolina’s in Myrtle Beach and Troon Golf/North Carolina. He has
been with us since August of 2006 and will be assisted by our other Assistant
Professional, Chad Jones. Chad comes to us from Old Hickory and is a welcome
addition to our staff.

As Head Professional, I look forward to participating with our staff and South Riding
Juniors in a productive and rewarding Junior Golf Program. We will also provide enough
golf instructors and volunteers to ensure our teacher/student ratio remains low to facilitate
quality instruction for your junior. If the group clinic structure does not meet your
specific needs, private instruction is available and can be scheduled by contacting the pro
shop and speaking with one of the golf professionals.

Thank you for taking the time to review the enclosed information on the South Riding
Golf Club Junior Program. We are really looking forward to the 2007 golf season!!
Please contact me or my staff if you have any additional questions. Thank you.

                                       PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The professional staff at South Riding Golf Club believes golf instruction to Juniors
encompasses much more than learning to hit the golf ball and make putts! Our program
is designed to ensure Juniors are exposed to the following aspects of the game of Golf:

          Provide a safe, fun and educational environment for junior golfers
          Introduce Juniors ages 5 to 13 to the game of golf
          Teach the basic fundamentals of the golf swing, rules and etiquette
          Develop and re-enforce social skills, emotional control, and positive values
          Establish an appreciation for the game of golf and the life values it instills

Instruction used for our Junior Program is based on the US Kids Golf Personal Tee Golf
Learning Program. “This unique program is designed for use by PGA or LPGA
professionals to provide balanced instruction and positive incentives to encourage young
golfers to reach their full potential in the game.”1 The US Kids Golf Personal Tee Golf
Learning Program is broken down into color coded levels based upon skill. Juniors will
be classified as Green (Level I), Yellow (Level II), or Red (Level III) depending on their
respective age and skill level as follows: Green, Ages 5-7 and Yellow/Red: Ages 8-13

The 2007 SRGC Junior Golf Program is comprised of 3 phases throughout the year.
Please note, ALL JUNIORS are required to provide, use and carry their own clubs. The
golf professional staff can assist parents with getting kids into the “right” clubs.

    U.S. Kids Golf Instructional Booklet for Kids
All Juniors will receive a US Kids Personal Tee Advancement Booklet if they sign up for
at least one summer session. These books provide a great reference for Juniors as they
work on improving their golf skills.

During the Summer Sessions, Juniors will have the opportunity to “join” the 2007 South
Riding Golf Club Junior Tour by paying a membership fee of $50. The goal of Junior
Tour membership is to help Juniors IDENTIFY, ESTABLISH and ACHIEVE progress
goals to improve their golf games. As they advance, they are awarded achievement pins,
bag tags and the next Level Advancement Booklet. Membership also includes
automatic entry into two Junior Tournaments discussed below. Additional Junior Tour
Membership benefits are as follows:

                  South Riding Golf Club Bag Tag with name
                  US Kids Golf Hat
                  US Kids Golf Towel
                  US Kids Achievement Pins and Bag Tags as they advance

Summer Sessions will cover the fundamentals, from Short Game to Full Swing, however,
each session will build upon instruction from the previous week. For this reason, parents
are encouraged to consider allowing their children to participate fully in the summer
program, including South Riding Golf Club Junior Tour Membership.

All Juniors will be assessed for skill level and group assignment during the Spring Clinics
or may attend a FREE assessment period on one of the following dates prior to the start
of the summer sessions:

       Sun, June 17, 1:30-3:30       Assessments
       Thu, June 21, 4:30-6:30       Assessments

Junior Tournaments: In addition to the Summer Sessions, South Riding Golf Club will
host 2 Junior Tournaments for those Juniors who are enrolled in the South Riding Golf
Club Junior Tour or those Juniors who have successfully passed a Player Ability
Evaluation. The Player Ability Evaluation is based on the Junior’s ability to pass the
following criteria as well as a 10 question rules/etiquette test:

 Putting             Short, 2'                  Make 3 of 5

As discussed previously, Junior Golf Instruction at South Riding Golf Club is based on
the US Kids Golf Personal Tee Golf Learning Program. Juniors are classified for
instruction and placed in appropriate instructional situations based on their age AND skill
level. Classifications are as follows:

                  Green (Level I), ages 5-7
                  Yellow (Level II), ages 8-13
                  Red (Level III), ages 8-13

The Green Tee is designed for Juniors who are at least age 5 and have expressed an
interest in golf. This entry level program is designed to introduce Juniors to swing
fundamentals and some elementary rules and etiquette basic to the game.

The Yellow Tee is designed for Juniors who have successfully completed the Green Tee
skills and rules assessments. This beginner/intermediate level program will further
develop each player’s swing fundamentals and understanding of basic swing mechanics.
Rules and etiquette instruction becomes more significant as well.

The Red Tee is the highest developmental level offered as part of the South Riding Golf
Club Junior Golf Program and is designed for the intermediate/advanced junior golfer.
Junior golfers who complete this level are at a point where individual/private instruction
is recommended. Red level instruction helps develop the thought processes and mental
skills to play the game of golf effectively.

In order to progress to the next level of instruction, Juniors must complete a skills
evaluation based upon the Level Criteria table at the end of this section. Those Juniors
that are enrolled as members of the South Riding Golf Club Junior Tour will be awarded
bag tags and advancement pins to recognize their progress. Skills evaluation criteria are
outlined in a table on the next page.

                                     Code of Conduct

The South Riding Golf Club Junior Golf Program Code of Conduct exists to ensure all
participants, including Juniors, parents, guardians and sponsors are provided the best
                    possible environment to enjoy the game of golf.

All participants are expected to follow the guidelines provided in this Code of Conduct.

Dress Code:
All participants are expected to dress in a manner that reflects decorum, good taste and an
understanding of current and traditional golf attire when using any of the golf facilities at
the South Riding Golf Club. Examples of clothing considered NOT APPROPRIATE are
as follows:

o Denim jeans, skirts, or shorts, any color.
o Cut-off or frayed shorts, athletic (gym) shorts, tennis shorts or skirts, spandex biking
  shorts
o Sweat Suits or Warm Up suits.
o Any tee-shirts, halter tops, tube-tops or tank tops
  o Young men shall wear collared or mock tee golf shirts, tucked in at all times.
     Baseball/Golf style hats shall never be worn backwards.
  o Young ladies may wear non-collared, yet appropriate golf attire.

Behavior/Etiquette:
o All players are expected to maintain the golf course by repairing ball marks, raking
   bunkers, replacing divots, picking up and disposing of trash, etc. “leave the course in
   better condition than you found it.”
o Any conduct that is detrimental to the South Riding Golf Club, the Junior Golf
   Program, other players or the staff will not be tolerated. Examples of such behavior
   include, but are not limited to:
   o Throwing Clubs
   o Abusive Language / Profanity
   o Fighting
   o Gambling
   o Use of Tobacco, Alcohol or Illegal Drugs
   o Abusive Treatment of Any Property or Person

Breach of any of the above guidelines will result in a warning and parental notification.
Any subsequent violation will result in suspension from the Junior Golf Program for the
remainder of the season.
           Tournament Guidelines for Players, Spectators and Volunteers


Parental involvement in the Junior Program, especially as volunteers during Tournament
Events, is welcomed and encouraged. The following guidelines apply to Junior
Tournaments conducted at the South Riding Golf Club:


o Caddies and/or carts will not be permitted at any SRGC Junior Tour Event.
     o Each player must carry his/her own clubs. Pull carts are not permitted.
     o Players are required to walk and handle their own clubs at all times during the
        round, including between holes.
     o Players may not ride in a golf cart, with the exception of an emergency, once
        they have teed off.
     o Exception: any player with a physical disability will be permitted to ride
        provided that there is a volunteer to drive.

o Volunteer Scorers and Spectators (Parents, etc) are encouraged to attend and
  support the Junior Events. However, we do ask that these simple guidelines be
  followed at all times. Penalty for breach of these guidelines will be assessed to the
  player and could cause them to be penalized up to 2 strokes or disqualified.
      o Volunteer Scorers may act, in a limited capacity, as a caddy for all players in
          the group by carrying items such as water, towels, umbrellas or food for use
          by players in the group.
      o Volunteer Scorers or Spectators are not Rules Officials. Please refrain from
          attempting to make rules decisions at any time
      o Volunteer Scorers may help with yardage and similar public knowledge
          issues, but may NOT give advice to any player. Advice is any counsel or
          suggestion which could influence a player in determining his/her play, the
          choice of club or the method of making a stroke. Examples of advice include,
          “You should hit a 6 Iron”, “Keep your head down”, or Just relax and take one
          shot at a time”.
      o Volunteer Scorers may provide cart transport of players and equipment ONLY
          to the first tee and from the final green of any event. Spectators MAY NOT
          permit players to ride in their cart unless authorized by the professional staff.
          At no time should more than two persons be on a golf cart. It is recommended
          that if more than one player needs to be transported, carry the player’s clubs
          and have them walk along.
      o Carts operated by spectators are required to remain on paths at all times.
      o Cellular phones, pagers and other similar electronic devices must be
          TURNED OFF while on the competition course, unless an emergency arises.
