NCAA Approved Club Golf Team for Junior in Nashville

The mission of Team 615 is to develop committed golfers in a team environment to improve technical skill sets, practice habits, knowledge of the game and develop character in youth golfers.

Who is eligible to join?

Any golfer who is currently enrolled in 8th thru 12th grade who resides in a 50 mile radius of 1 University Drive, Nashville, TN (Lipscomb University) who wants to compete in local, regional and national junior events.

What is team practice?

Team practice is 90 minutes of guided and supervised practice for each student. The student to teacher ratio typically is 12:1. Practice can include but not limited to full swing, short game, practice strategies, and course management. 

Who are the coaches?

The lead coach is Ben Pellicani, who has worked with multiple students who have been in the top 10 AJGA Rolex Rankings and is currently the Associate Men's Head Golf Coach at Lipscomb University. Guest coaches will be used for their expertise on a periodic basis. Fitness is directed by Mike Wilson a TPI level 3 certified golf fitness specialist.  He currently is the lead trainer for multiple Tour players and travels to a dozen tour events a year to be the fitness liaison for the PGA Tour.

Why join the team?

The goal for most junior golfers is to play high school then pursue the opportunity to play NCAA college golf. One of the hardest adjustments for players to make at the college level is learning to play in a new team environment. Having the experience of coaches who have coached players at every level: junior, college and professional level, help the players to better prepare to make the jump to the collegiate game.

Why not just take individual lessons?

The saying "iron sharpens iron" directly applies to developing junior golfers. This team environment allows for the players to have friendly competition on a regular basis where everyone has the goal of improving. In addition, team practices allows for an economical way for golfers to be seen and observed by qualified professionals.

Can I have a different swing instructor then Team 615 coaches?

Yes you can. The coaches at Team 615 will communicate with outside swing instructors to see what the drills and technical areas the student is working on.

Note: Commitment to each training period is made prior to the start of the training period. Any missed practices can not be made up unless injury or prolonged sickness have occurred. Family vacations will be handled on a case by case situation.
