Many benefits to junior golf

Golf is a great way for youngsters to learn life skills and lessons that they’ll carry with them throughout their lives. Not to mention, it’s a great way to get exercise and meet new friends!

Why is Junior Golf important?

Golf is a sport that boys and girls can play at a young age and enjoy for the rest of their lives. When golfing at the City of London Municipal Golf Courses, juniors meet new friends, enjoy the health benefits of physical exercise, learn to manage their emotions, set personal goals, improve their concentration, and learn valuable communication skills – all while having fun outdoors. Golf helps shape the lives of juniors by teaching them the following key life values:

  • Responsibility and Respect
  • Honesty and Integrity
  • Courtesy and Perseverance
  • Sportsmanship and Confidence

Our Municipal Golf System promotes junior golf through summer camps, free weekly leagues, free Club Championships, free golf at Fanshawe’s Parkside 9, and by offering low, affordable membership packages and green fee prices for golfers aged 7 to 18.

 

2019 Junior Camps:

This program is designed for juniors who wish to learn the basics of golf so that they can enjoy the game for the rest of their lives.

Instruction will be provided by PGA of Canada Golf Professionals in a fun, stress-free environment. Junior golfers will be introduced to a proper grip, stance, basic swing mechanics, and short game skills (chipping and putting), as well as rules and etiquette. This is a 4-day morning camp taking place from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. There will be a 9-hole fun golf tournament followed by a barbecue lunch on the final day. Juniors should provide their own clubs. Proper footwear is required. Cost: $99 Resident, $104 Non-Resident.
