What is the mission of the program? 
Travel Golf is a stepping stone type environment where kids can develop a joy for the game in a fun and safe environment. Many boys & girls who combine this with instruction can possibly progress enough to compete at the High School and possibly College level.

Does this program replace instruction? 
No, this program is meant to enhance the instructional experience. It gives the kids a chance to put their skills to practice and expose them to different courses and situations. Travel golf also can show the kids areas of the game they need to improve.

How much experience is needed?
Not as much as you may think. Basic ball-striking skills are enough. This is not the PGA/ LPGA Tour. It is a grooming ground for new thru experienced golfers.

Where will the events be held?
All events will be held at local golf facilities within approximately 30 minutes of Applecross Country Club.

Why go to the different golf facilities?
This is an important part of the development of a golfer. Many parents tell us that the level of growth in their child’s skill and confidence is amazing as they learn to handle the unique challenges associated with the different courses.

How long does it take to play?
You can expect approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes to play your 9 holes once you begin. You should arrive at least 45 minutes prior to your round to check-in and warm-up.

Girls Golf

PGA Professional, Eric MacCluen has set out to make golf more accessible to young girls in Chester County. Promoting the game of golf to girls in our area through free clinics, school gym classes, and similar activities is just the beginning of the golf opportunities introduced by Eric MacCluen and his golf school. There is no one in the region with more experience and success in Junior Girls Golf because of the numerous programs offered for girls to learn the game of golf and gain confidence with their skills in order to play well on the course. Whether your daughter just wants to have fun or play competitive golf, this is the place for her to be.

Travel Golf is a great way for girls to begin playing golf in a relaxed yet competitive atmosphere. The only program of its’ kind in the region, the Travel Golf League is a fantastic opportunity for your daughter to experience “game action” in a team environment, just like they would in other sports. Playing in the league will help the girls gain confidence with their skills in order to play well on the course. Eric has the proven experience to transform young girls into competitive college players and beyond. In addition, this is a chance for girls to play at some great area courses in a safe and fun environment.

 

 

“I swear our daughter is always happy when she comes home from golf class! Thanks so much Eric for always encouraging her.” ~ Parent

“We’ve been members at different clubs in the area for more than twenty years. Rarely have we seen more than one girl in any class at the other clubs. At Applecross it’s different. Here it’s 50/50 and sometimes more girls than boys. Sometimes I can’t believe my eyes. It has been absolutely great for my daughter.” ~ Parent

 


 
 

“It is an understatement to say Eric has played a major role in my life. Not only has his encouragement and guidance influenced my character, but he has also helped me accomplish my dream of playing Division 1 golf. Eric is truly an incredible teacher with a big heart and a strong drive to impact junior golf.”

“There were times that I thought I would have to quit golf because I just couldn't do it anymore, but after a phone call or lesson with Eric that doubt was quickly just a passing memory. He always thinks outside the box by coming up with new drills, games, and new ways to help students learn. It’s so awesome to stand back and watch how children are drawn to him. He has a way of teaching them so that they keep coming back for more, and that's what the game of golf needs- more people like Eric MacCluen. My life changed the day that I had my first lesson with Eric when I was fifteen years old and my only regret is that I didn't get a chance to work with him when I was younger."

 



Kelli Pry, 2011 Pennsylvania State Amateur Champion and a 9 year student of Eric's, has taken a position at the TPC Tampa Bay in Florida. The new job gives Kelli an excellent opportunity. TPC Tampa Bay will be a great place to practice her game as she pursues her dream of playing professional golf!
