        Junior Golf Every Wednesday

        Junior Golf starts at 4pm Wednesdays, starting June 2 -Aug. 25, 2021. We offer an upbeat, fun coaching program with a fresh learning curve for juniors. Come and gather with family and friends for an introduction to golf.

        Coaching will include the fundamentals of the golf swing, from shorter shots to long drives. The lessons will also cover golf rules, etiquette, learning how to enjoy the game and getting ready to get out onto the golf course! Upon arrival, sign in and start your warm up.

        Coaching will include practice time on the driving range, putting green and time on the course.  If able, Juniors will stay and enjoy hot dogs and drinks supplied by the Junior Golf Program after the lesson time. Parents are invited and encouraged to participate in Junior night Juniors will be ready for home by 6:00pm.

        Rules and helpful tips

        We have no strict dress code, smart casual is all we ask. No tank tops or low cut tops. No short shorts or cut-offs. 

        Soft spiked golf shoes, runners or tennis shoes are appropriate footwear.

        Salt Spring Junior Golf shirts will be available to the Junior membership.

        In warm sunny weather wear a hat, sunscreen and bring water to stay hydrated.

        Golf clubs for Juniors

        If your junior is in need of golf clubs, our pro shop sells both new and used clubs at excellent prices. Come get clubs fitted by staff so they can get going with the right equipment to have a good time.

        If purchasing clubs is not a good option at this time, our junior program will have clubs available, free of charge, for use on our junior program days. Please check at the Pro Shop for more information as an appointment is recommended.
