Where Golfing Fun Begins for all ages in York County, PA! Sometimes, the very rules that define the sport present like a wall to climb over for golfers just starting out. We realize this and offer interested individuals and groups the opportunity to experience golf in a fun format, using PGA endorsed equipment, but that’s easier to understand. Genesis Golf is pioneering a creative teaching method with our creative team and PGA endorsed SNAG® equipment developed specifically for junior golfers which features: larger club faces, fun Velcro targets and (safer) tennis balls in lieu of golf balls. Add in the team’s creativity for fun and games, while still teaching golf basics, and it cultivates a non-intimidating, fun environment.
This is perfect for those without experience, no parental involvement is needed and all equipment is provided. Remember however, learning to play golf takes more than a single camp or experience. It’s a game many improve on over a lifetime. Our goal is to introduce your child, your wife or girlfriend, your husband or boyfriend or even YOU, with a series of camps and clinics to build your confidence and be ready to take the next step. When you are ready, we will point you in the right direction depending upon your objectives.
Golf is a game that challenges us both physically and mentally. In fact, its mostly a game within your head. It also teaches character development of traits that we all should have more of: courage, attitude, etiquette, honor, creativity, patience and discipline.

Each junior golf session we have with your child, will touch upon the wonderful character traits we know to be development with the game of golf.

Good Golfers. Better People!
We are a proud part of The First Tee DRIVE program developed by the PGA and LPGA. As such, we following their curriculum guidelines for beginner junior golfers, but with our own twists to keep each session fun and challenging alike. The age of each class also impacts how we adapt each class as well. Our beginner and intermediate junior golf classes are intended for junior golfers not playing with their own clubs and comfortable enough to play on their own. Its designed to teach the rules of golf slowly, the four kinds of swings and their purposes. Its a great segway to getting them ready to have clubs and begin understanding the purposes of their varying irons, wedges, drivers and putter.
The First Tee & Golf4Kids program at Genesis Golf doesn’t just teach golf, it teaches life skills — and we have the research and results to back it up. After three years in the program, youth at The First Tee chapters reported through independent research¹:
- 73% reported high confidence in their ability to do well academically.
- 82% felt confident in their social skills with peers.
- 52% credited the program for their ability to appreciate diversity.
To get started, we request an evaluation of your child to determine where to best place your child, evaluating age, golf experience, golf goals, golf skills and maturity. We will also attempt to group similar kids, where natural breaks appear, knowing that having fun is also very important.
