Under the direction of Anthony Latham, the Junior Golf program at Royce Brook has been recognized as one of the best, innovative and most comprehensive junior teaching programs in New Jersey. The curriculum used for the nationally ranked Junior College of Golf (JCOG) as well as the Advanced Camp and Junior Academy enable children of all ages and skill levels to find the correct Program to improve their skills and knowledge of the game in a fun yet competitive environment. In 2013 he was awarded the NJPGA Junior Golf Leader and was again named to the Top 50 US Kids Junior Golf Instructors in the United States.
Besides specializing in developing junior golfers Anthony has also gained a superior reputation as a teacher of ladies, especially at the beginner level. His “transition to play” programs have helped hundreds of women move from the driving range to the golf course. Many of his techniques have been called “unconventional but effective” and have appeared in numerous golf magazines.
A PGA Member since 1995, Anthony is entering his 14th year at Royce Brook and is responsible for overseeing the entire teaching program for The Academy of Golf. He also lectures and teaches at the Pennington Ewing Athletic Club (PEAC) in Mercer County, Baylinks Golf in Newtown, PA and serves as an instructor and adviser for The First Tee of Greater Trenton.
