Rae Golf Youth Academy has 4 young instructors – Carlos, Cristofer, Hanna-Eliise and Mari, who contribute daily to the development of golf culture in Estonia. Our goal is to raise the number of young people playing golf in Harju County and make golf one of the most popular sports in Rae Parish. Golf training is open for all young golfers aged 4–18. No previous golf experience is necessary – the training groups will be formed according to skill levels. You do not need to have your own golf gear – this will be provided by the club at no extra cost.
Etiquette and values – golf is a game with a long history of tradition that dates back several centuries. Playing golf teaches kind and respectful behaviour towards yourself and others.
Spending time outdoors – being outdoors and active from early spring until autumn helps you stay healthy. You will develop a healthy habit that is much better for your body and mind than playing computer games or watching TV.
Quality time with family – golf can keep your family busy for hours. Golf is a good chance for parents to spend time with their children and give them positive feedback and encouragement.
Fun – in today’s world of technology, children are pressured to grow up too fast. Meeting friends face to face has become rare but golf offers an excellent possibility to spend quality time with good company.
Health – golf offers an active lifestyle while being a sport with a low injury rate. Golf develops internal muscles that support your spine, helps improve flexibility and gives you a chance to be active and healthy.
Golf gear – all the necessary equipment will be provided by the club for free for young golfers.
Unlimited golf every day – students of Rae Golf Academy, up to 18 years old, can play and practice unlimited golf at the club for the whole summer.
In training, we use light plastic golf clubs and soft colourful golf balls to ensure the safety of the training and our trainees. In training, we pass on the etiquette, rules and values of golf. In addition, the training also includes elements from other games to improve coordination and various sports skills.

This group is best characterised by skilful play. Our coaches constantly find creative and fun ways to encourage the development of young golfers. We also focus on important aspects such as the values and history of the game, golf etiquette, self-development and analysis. This is the training group where we will start setting individual goals for players and will do all we can to help them reach these goals by developing the necessary skills through various exciting games and exercises.
The Golden Bears are named after Jack Nicklaus, the world-famous golfer who earned this nickname in his early career.
This is a group for more advanced players. The training focuses more on polishing technical skills and achieving the best results. The players develop a certain routine for every stroke and a certain way of hitting the ball. They also learn to develop an attitude that helps them overcome bad results and move on in spite of them. The purpose of the training is to build up a wide experience base for young players that would enable them to cope even in most challenging situations on the golf course and in their daily lives.
The name Red Tigers refers to Tiger Woods and his habit of wearing a red shirt on game day.
This group unites players who share a passion for golf and who wish to be role models. They spend all their free time on the golf course and aim for higher and higher places in tournaments. In addition to developing technical skills, we also pay attention to the mental side of golf.
