CERTIFICATION

At the end of each level of the Life Skills Experience – PLAYer, Par, Birdie, and Eagle – participants complete a consistent certification process to move to the next level. This process increases the probability PLAYer, Par, Birdie, and Eagle certified participants have not only been exposed to core lessons, but also can demonstrate and apply golf and life skills taught at each level.

Our certification process combines a life skill and golf knowledge paper test with a golf skills test. The test is taken at the time the student will be eligible age wise for the next level.

EXAMPLE 1 – Student A is in the Player class and is 8 years old but will turn nine prior to the next session of classes, then student A is eligible to take certification.

EXAMPLE 2 – Student A is in the Player class and is 8 years old but will not turn 9 prior to the next session of classes, then student A is NOT eligible for certification at this time.
