I am closer to 17 than 7. I have never golfed before. Will I be in a group with 7 year old protegees?

No.  Although Bogey Bear welcomes students from age 7 through 17, we realize that not everyone develops an interest in golf early in their career.  We attempt to group students not only by ability but by age as they rotate through the different stations (putting, chipping, bunker, driving range).  We also have high school students who play on their respective high school golf teams who are Mentors/Coaches who conduct one-on-one sessions with older students.
