Junior Golf

For many years the Highland Country Club Junior Golf Program has provided our Juniors with the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the game of golf from trained PGA of Canada golf Professionals. We pride ourselves in the overall development of all our Juniors and have had a number of them become golf professionals, attend American and Canadian universities on golf scholarships, and become very successful in the business world.

Again this season, our program consists of a variety of instructional sessions, special events and golf tournaments designed for all our Junior Members to learn and compete in a safe and fun environment.

Below is an outline of our program. Should you have any questions or wish to register for any of the events please feel free to contact the Professional Shop to discuss in greater detail.

Thank you,
Rick Pero
Director of Golf

Junior Coaching Program

Golf lessons are a great way to improve your game but if you really want to see a difference, then one-on-one coaching sessions are a better approach. Coaching sessions offer continuous feedback helping you elevate your game to a new level.  This program is for the Junior aged 8 - 18 who is motivated to become a good player and is willing to work on their game on a regular basis.  Our Professionals will provide this player with a plan that is measurable and will show improvement throughout the golf season.
  • 10 x 30 minute coaching sessions (recommended) every 2 weeks.
  • Customized based on age and skill level including tasks to be completed weekly.
  • The use of FlightScope technology to measure results and provide feedback for both player and instructor.
  • 9 hole playing lesson
