Junior Winter Program

Winter Program Details – to sign up, email Marc

This Fall and Winter our Apprentice Pro Marc Valliere will be running a junior performance program. The program is geared towards players who are looking to start or to continue their competitive golf aspirations. The program will span from October 1 through March 31. From December 14 through January 7 the program will pause to allow the players to take much needed time off to recharge and get their focus shifted away from golf (which is always necessary when training at a high level). Our main focus will remain on the importance of having fun and enjoyment but making sure we are taking all necessary steps to build the best players that we can. Throughout this program we will cover all different aspects of the game that are needed in order to be able to compete and perform to the highest level. The program will serve a great purpose for off course growth as well developing good habits from practice that we can translate into everyday life skills to become successful. Each week an organized practice will be scheduled and set up for our players to hone in on their skills ( Fridays 3pm-4pm). A variety of different drills and games will be used to create a fun but effective practice regiment. Furthermore included in this program there will be private lessons that will be scheduled bi-weekly. Private

Lessons will be booked separately through Marc to each of the players convenience. Also included we will be doing 9 hole playing lessons that will be taking place bi-weekly as a group (Sunday afternoons) with post round analysis to take place following the round.

Program Cost $299.99 plus tax (per session)

Each session would include 4 structured practices, 2 private lesson (45 minutes) and 2 9 hole playing sessions with coach. The sessions must be done over the course of 4 weeks for scheduling purposes.

Learn to Play Program

Learn to Play is a four step golf skills program that focuses on children aged 6-14. By the end of level 4 the participants will be able to play on any size golf course unsupervised. Learn to Play does not simply focus on making kids better at golf. It also focuses on making better kids. Life skills such as honesty and perseverance are deeply rooted in the game of golf. Having the opportunity to learn these skills at a young age while playing a great sport simply cannot be matched.

LTPD 2.0 Learn to Play coincides with Golf Canada’s Long Term Player Development Program. The program has had participants such as LPGA Tour star Brooke Henderson and PGA Tour player Adam Svensson. Learn more on Golf Canada’s website.

2020 camp information coming soon.
