BAA Golf Program Overview
The Bloomington Athletic Association delivers fun, affordable, and safe youth sports experiences, that are fueled by our passionate volunteers. Our golf program provides kids of all ages the opportunity to develop in the areas of golf etiquette, rules of play, and strengthening motor skills all while having fun in a family-friendly atmosphere. Join us in refining golfers’ skills for the future!
For our Dwan golf camp, Virg will be assigning parents of current players to be scorekeepers for the end-of-season tournament. Contact Virg if you have questions about how this works.
Hyland Greens Program – Discontinued
Beginning in 2021, the Three Rivers Park District began offering a program and/or instruction for the youth. Due to these changes, BAA can no longer offer our golf camp at Hyland. The Three Rivers lessons at Hyland Greens are a good opportunity to improve golf knowledge and skills while being affordable. This is highly recommended for more novice players, as playing with minimal skills can be frustrating.

Age Group Youth ages 8 to 18 (including graduating seniors from high school). Players have to be mature enough to do what is right on the course without supervision. Golf knowledge and maturity is the determining factor, not age.
Experience The Player has to be mature enough to do what is right on the course without supervision. Right means:
*Keeping an accurate score
*Keeping up with the group in front of you
*Treating everyone else on the course with courtesy and respect
*Treating the course nicely
*Making sure members of your group & others on the course are not in danger when swinging a golf club or hitting a golf ball, etc.
Program Qualifications Along with maturity, each player has to be able to keep up with the group in front of them. On a longer course like Dwan, this would typically mean being able to score in the low 50’s or better from the Back Tees at Hyland. A score in that range isn’t mandatory, but it would help make sure things run smoothly on the course. It is also important to always be ready to hit your shot when it’s your turn.

- NO lessons will be offered with the Dwan Camp due to the unavailability of Hyland for BAA use.
- The City of Bloomington has changed how they bill BAA for tee times beginning in 2022. We must have foursomes for each tee time we reserve. This means the total number of registrations we accept this year could be limited, so please do not delay registering your child today.
