The Poplar Creek Golf Staff is a serious advocate in the promotion of junior golf. We believe that golf is a game for life and in so many ways prepares young players with life skills that are learned through the game of golf. We want to share our love and passion for the game with our junior golfers. Our commitment to junior golf has many facets – please review the following programs:

Junior Golf Clinics
Junior golf clinics for students ages 9-17 are offered in collaboration with the City of San Mateo’s Park and Recreation Department. The series consists of four one-hour lessons. The clinics are run in accordance to the PGA of America’s Play Golf America program. The lessons cover all phases of the game. Short game principles, including chipping, pitching, sand play, and putting are covered. Golf etiquette and rules of the game, along with how to manage your game on the golf course are additional topics that are reviewed.
Golf clubs are provided and all those completing the series receive a certificate for one free round of golf at Poplar Creek. The series of four classes costs $115 for City of San Mateo residents and $140 for all others. Classes may be cancelled or consolidated with other class times if enrollment numbers fall below the minimum of four participants. Please call (650) 522-7510 for more information or view the current City of San Mateo Activity Guide.
