Initial Assessment & Consultation

The meeting includes a range session, up to 18 holes of golf, game assessment, junior golf overview, college process discussion, client interview, Q & A opportunity and written summary with recommendations in the days following the round of golf. This fee may be applied as a credit towards any other RTCG program within the first 30 days.

Middle School Program

This includes a warm-up session on the range, 9 holes of golf, recap meeting with the junior golfer and family immediately following the round as well as a written outline of what's ahead.  Also included are 2 calls/zoom meetings up to 30 minutes each (to be utilized within a year of the initial meeting) to ask Coach Gleason questions about junior golf and the like. (Green fees for Coach Gleason and junior golfer are paid by client)

Premium Program

A Premium Program is essentially a program tailored to the client's needs.  For example, some clients opt for extra course management coaching and/or practice round sessions with Coach Gleason, in addition to the periodic meetings included in the Annual Program.  These sessions can be added on as needed. 

Practice Round Prep/Course Management Coaching

Coach Gleason will play  18 holes with junior golfer to prep for a tournament competition or to provide coaching on course management.  Topics will include how to properly play a practice round, charting the course and developing an appropriate strategy and game plan for the course. This is solely for the purpose of mentoring the junior golfer on how to play an effective practice round for a tournament and/or coaching course management strategies. There will be no game assessment or discussions on junior golf or college process during this time.   (Green fees for Coach Gleason and junior golfer are paid by client).

Hourly Program


A 10-hour retainer used by clients at their discretion. In this program, Coach Gleason will solely respond to questions or inquires and will not be proactive or initiate contact as it is up to client to use their respective time as they deem most appropriate. Once the initial 10 hours have been provided, clients will be charged the current hourly rate for additional services performed. Prepaid hours expire 1 year after purchase.

Payment Terms

All programs begin upon receipt of paying the full fee in advance. These fees are not contingent on the prospective student-athlete being recruited to play college golf or receive any institutional financial aid.

Travel Expenses

Clients incur additional fees to cover applicable travel time and related expenses if meetings are conducted more than 60 miles from Mission Viejo, CA. Airfare, rental car, gas, hotel, and incidental expenses will be charged on an actual basis. Meal reimbursement will be charged at $40 per day and mileage will be calculated based on current IRS tax codes.

Transfer Option

Within the first three hours of paid service, hourly clients can opt for the annual or Premium program by paying the applicable difference at that time.

All RTCG students are expected to conduct themselves appropriately on and off the golf course. This means No Drugs and No Alcohol. Repeated violations of standards may result in dismissal from the RTCG program and in forfeiture of fees paid.
