The current session of our popular Little Linker/Diamond League program began May 31.

Play will be for eight (8) straight Sundays. Tee times fluctuate some, but Diamond League play normally starts at 3:00 p.m. Little Linkers play at approximately 3:30 p.m. This program is for junior golfers who have the ability to hit the ball into the air and move it forward – in other words have played before or have had previous instruction.

The Diamond League is for players 13 through 17. These players will be playing from the adult tees here at Diamond Oaks.

The Little Linkers is for players 7 through 12. These players will play from one of two sets of tees. 7 – 9 play from the orange tees which are placed on the course just on Sundays. 10 – 12 play from the yellow tees (Diamond Tees). Younger players who display the ability to play from these tees may do so.

The last three weeks the players play under tournament criteria, i.e. they play on their own with no help from adults or other players. We take the low two out of three scores to determine championships for each age group.

The cost of this program is $199.

Come into the Diamond Oaks Pro Shop to register. For more information please contact Dale Smith at dpsmith14@yahoo.com .

The Junior Golf Academy is designed for junior golfers age 13 and above who are looking to play competitive golf on their respective high school teams, compete in individual tournaments, or pursue a college scholarship. Junior golfers under the age of 13 may be eligible, though prior instruction and/or experience is required, and participation in the program must be approved by the Director of Instruction.

The Junior Golf Academy at Diamond Oaks is designed to help all levels of junior golfers – beginners to the most advanced players and encompasses the following areas of the game:

  • Initial and on-going assessments
  • Individualized golf training program for each student
  • Twice weekly “supervised practice” with our instructional staff
  • Custom club-fitting, as needed
  • High speed video swing analysis
  • Launch monitor ball flight analysis
  • Weekly enhanced group golf fitness program
  • Opportunities to play the course with our instructional staff to build course management skills
  • Opportunities to play the course in 9-hole competitions

The monthly cost of $150 is due at the beginning of the month. If your child first enters the program after the first of the month, then the initial monthly cost will be pro-rated.

The program runs all year and meets twice weekly for supervised practice with our professional teaching staff. Currently we meet at Diamond Oaks Golf Course on the following days and times (holiday schedule may differ slightly):

  • Tuesdays 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
  • Thursdays 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Voluntary practice days with half-price range balls for JGAers on Wednesday and Friday.

Tee times are available on Saturday after 1:30 p.m. for JGAers to play with other JGAers at a reduced rate ($5 if they are Youth On Course members, $8 if they are not.

The application for this program can be obtained at the Pro Shop at Diamond Oaks. For more information please contact Kevin Estrella.

Roseville 9-Hole Golfers Casual League

This league is for the beginning-to-intermediate, or returning, player. If you are still working on your swing or are unable to hit the ball up in the air over 50 yards consistently then you are not ready for this league. (Stay tuned as I am trying to work on maybe a 5-hole play day for beginners).

To join,  go to meetup.com/Roseville-9-Hole-Golfers

The Meetup site is where you can RSVP if you will want to play in any event.

Most of the information is on the site, but if you have any questions, please send me an email, a text, or call me. I look forward to having you join us!
