There is much anticipation of courses raising their game for junior golf. It is our future!! Here at Muskoka Highlands, we run daily programs to encourage you to bring your junior(s) to the local golf courses. There is no lack of tee times available to golfers. But bringing a junior is special and it needs to be at a special time when both parent and child feel comfortable being in public playing a technically difficult sport. And one that the parent does not truly understand enough to be a good teacher. We all try – and we all pass along our little idiosyncrasies to the next generation.
Let’s start with the lessons – how can we get lessons for our juniors on a consistent basis? We offer weekly sessions for junior golfers – every Saturday morning from 10-11 for under 9 and 11-12 for over 9. The response has been very positive from the parents and the kids. Schedules are the only thing that prevent this from being a weekly event for every junior who comes to their first session. The kids do get the basics and are in a better position to think about being on the course by the end of the summer.
Golf Camps are popular and we have our lineup ready for you. Some are already full, and some have a few spaces. There is more information available here – we will not duplicate the effort.
Then there is access. We have a commitment to family golf – not necessarily just junior golf. Any day after 6PM, an adult and junior can play for $1 per hole. The people who have taken this offer have raved about the ease of pressure it brings. There is no big investment for parents and children to play any number of holes together. And no pressure to finish a fixed number of holes. It is all fun. And this offer is not age discriminate – parent, child after 6 – $1 per hole all season!!
