Junior Golf

It's never too early to take up the game of a lifetime. Our goal for junior golfers within the BOYNE Golf Academy is to grow their game to their ability. We have developed a progression chart to see where your junior fits in and where they can take their game.

Junior Golf Development

Whether your junior is contemplating their very first swing, or hoping to take their game to the next level, our nationally recognized team of professional instructors can help realize their goals and potential. The dedicated BOYNE Golf Academy professionals at Boyne Highlands and Boyne Mountain have the skills, knowledge and state-of-the-art teaching technology necessary to elevate every aspect of the game - from short to long.

Cart Privileges & Tee Time Pricing

We want to give junior golfers every opportunity to get out and play our courses while being safe and responsible. Cart privileges are granted to any junior who has a valid license. If a junior is not of age to drive, The Moor and The Heather are both walkable courses available to any age.

The following tee time pricing is valid on all courses (available after 5pm only at Bay Harbor Golf Club; child pays cart fee):

  • Prior to 2pm: $30 (with at least one paying adult)
  • After 2pm: Free (with at least one paying adult)

The Cuff Links Executive Par 3 course at Boyne Highlands Resort is also available, free of charge, to the public. It is located behind the Day Lodge. 


Junior Has A Fit Program

Since 2003, Boyne Country Sports has been fitting young golfers with equipment that enables them to enjoy a day on the course.

The Junior Has A Fit program is now more than 11,000 kids strong and growing each season. Why join? It's simple, really. Whether you have a little golfer on your hands, our Junior Has A Fit Program is the perfect way to have gear that fits from season to season. No need to try and "squeeze a season or two" out of the equipment, thus sacrificing fit, comfort and performance.


Enter the program.
Get brand new, properly fitted equipment.
Return equipment.
Get new equipment the following season.
Yes, it is that simple.


Kids develop habits at a young age...whether that's the correct stance while addressing the ball or the correct balance on the balls of their feet. A critical component to forming the proper habits is correctly fitted equipment. A golf shaft that is the right length will allow them the proper stance and swing.

Not only does the correct fit enable young golfers to form the correct habits at an early age, it makes for a more comfortable and enjoyable experience for them and for their parents! Contact your nearest Boyne Country Sports location for additional questions and details.  

How it Works:

  • Extending the theory that a golfer's first shot can set the tone for an entire round, the Junior Golf Trade-Up Program sets the tone for entire lifetimes spent enjoying golf. It's as easy as 1, 2, 3:
  • Bring Junior to our Bloomfield Hills, Novi, Petoskey or Traverse City Boyne Country Sports location and we'll properly fit your young golfer.
  • Return Junior's golf clubs with the paperwork once they have outgrown their clubs and you will receive 100% credit towards new Junior equipment. 
  • Repeat steps 1 & 2 for a perfect fit the following year. 


Important conditions: $40 membership fee applies. Membership may not be transferred to another individual. Members may receive $100 credit toward any new adult set upon completion of the program. $10 seasonal exchange fee applies. Sets must be complete and in playable condition when returned.
