Birdies Plus Program This program is for students ages 5 and up. The program is held at The Golf Club of Riverdale (TCR), is 17-week long program with an option for transportation from school and then back home, Weather permitting at least 6 of the 17 session dates will be held at an area golf course. The program provides a wonderful way to extend and enrich the fundamental golf and movement skills, and methodologies taught in the Early Birdie classes. We continue to nurture students’ love for golf and delve deeper into key concepts including pre-shot routine, scoring, club selection and course management. These classes include activities and exercises that reinforce and challenge students’ developing skills. Students benefit from the extended class time at TCR and the use of their golf simulator, 4 hitting bays, putting green, video analysis tools and large gymnasium When you opt for transportation, students are picked up at school in a TCR van and then returned to their home. Should you prefer to provide your own transportation, class will begin at 4:00 pm and end at 5:45 pm. Dates are: Monday, September 9th - Saturday, February 1st (Note, this timeline accounts for Holidays, during which NO CLASS will be held). TCR drivers are year round employees. Their vehicles are equipped with two-way communications to keep the office in constant contact. You can always call the club to ascertain the location relative to home for both pickups and drop-off. One can also change drop-off or pick-up locations with notice and can arrange for late pick-up or early drop-off. Upon registration and election of the transportation, you will be given information for the TCR transportation coordinator. They will inform you of protocol for notifying your child’s school about the pick-up by TCR vehicle on your scheduled dates and the contact information for at home drop off. Golf instruction occurs between 4pm and 5:45. Transportation is from 3:15 to 4 and from 5:45 to 6:30.
