Why should I attend the Wildcat Golf Junior Academy?
The Wildcat Golf Junior Academy is a year-round program geared toward highly motivated and competitive junior golfers who have the desire to compete at the highest level, locally, regionally and nationally.
Where do the WGA programs take place?
The WGA winter program takes place at the Gleacher Golf Center at Northwestern University, 2407 Sheridan Road, Evanston, IL. The spring/summer/fall programs are held at the Luke Donald Practice Facility at The Glen Club, 2901 West Lake Avenue, Glenview, IL.
What is the Wildcat Golf Junior Academy Payment Policy?
Prior to the start of the first day of practice, the session fee, annual NCAA membership fee (if due) must be paid, and the WGA online waiver must be completed. If all three of these aren’t completed, your son/daughter cannot start practice.
Refunds will not be allowed for days missed. If your son/daughter misses a day, he/she will receive credit towards a future program. You will need to contact Lisa Jones when you would like to use this credit.
Per NCAA rules, there is a $75 annual membership fee (We are considered a club program by the NCAA). Due to NCAA rules and regulations, the Wildcat Golf Academy must charge an annual membership fee to any junior golfer who registers for one of our group programs or takes a private lesson. All of our instructors are on staff with the Northwestern men’s and women’s golf teams. In order for our staff to work with junior golfers we have to charge this annual fee. This is a rule that was given to us by the Northwestern Compliance office in conjunction with the NCAA.
Can I sign up for a single practice date?
Golfers must register for an entire session and complete it within the time frame of that session. You can not sign up for single practice dates, unless the program allows you to do so.
If I miss a practice, can I make it up with another group?
If your son/daughter misses a practice and would like to come to another for a make up, we will do our best to accommodate. Due to the enrollment in our other programs (limit of golfers in each group), we may not be able to do this. Please check with Lisa Jones, email@example.com before coming to a make up practice.
If I don’t use all my practice dates in a session, can I carry them over to the next session?
You cannot transfer practice dates from one session to the next. The only exception is if an injury prevents you from being able to finish the session.
Cancellation Policy for Private Lessons?
There is a 24 hour cancellation policy for private lessons. If you don’t cancel within 24 hours, you will NOT be able to reschedule the private lesson. The only exception is if an injury or illness causes you to cancel.
What happens if practice is at The Glen Club and there is inclement weather?
If there is inclement weather and practice needs to be canceled or moved to the Gleacher Center, an email will be sent to all registered members no later than an hour and a half prior to the start of practice.
