FOR BEGINNER AND NOVICE JUNIOR GOLFERS
Our Tier 1 division is dedicated to the beginner or novice junior golfer aged 7 to 13. The program consists of a half day of golf at the Richmond Hill Golf Club, and a half day of other fun sports activities including swimming, baseball, basketball, tennis and more. All of our instructors are CPGA Professionals and are dedicated to the growth and development of junior golf. Camp counselors are also on hand to assist our staff each day. All golf instruction is performed at a 6:1 student to teacher ratio, with groups created based on similar skill level and age.
Our facilities consist of a championship 18 hole golf course, 21 station driving range, large putting green, bunker and chipping area, and a 1500 square foot indoor facility. The indoor Golf Learning Centre is used to greet students upon arrival and departure, as well as on rainy days. The golf portion of each day typically runs from 9:15am to 12:00pm, with lunch and various other activities scheduled in the afternoon.
FOR ADVANCED AND EXPERIENCED JUNIOR GOLFERS
Our Tier 2 division is designed for junior golfers with some golf experience looking to advance their skills to the next level. Tier 2 camp is perfect for junior golfers that have participated in our Tier 1 camp in the past. It is recommended that all Tier 2 level students participate in a minimum 2 week program to allow instructors to fully assess, improve and develop their abilities. This is a full day golf program (8:30am to 3:30pm), with students getting on the course for 9 holes of play every day.
Each day starts with a 30 minute warm up on the driving range with an instructor. From there, kids head out on the course with an instructor for 9 holes of golf. While on the course, the instructor will evaluate their strengths and weaknesses and prescribe a practice session for after the round. After lunch, the remainder of the afternoon is dedicated to improving specific areas of performance. Junior evaluation may be required.
The classes feature small student to instructor ratios, providing your child with the maximum opportunity to accelerate the improvement of their skills. The day is split into majors and minors – the major being tennis with the minors being basketball, archery and recreational swimming.
Youngsters will be divided into “beginner” and “advanced” groups, based on their tennis experience.
The Sports Program is designed for boys and girls 7 to 13 years old and focuses on participation, enjoyment and skill learning. Campers enjoy a variety of sports such as golf, baseball, basketball, volleyball, soccer and tetherball to mention a few. Campers are divided up into groups honouring franchises from the City of Toronto and participate in three of the four specialities each day, plus take part in an instructional swim.
