On a very positive note we opened our Optimist L’il Loop (3 holes for children). We do not take tee times. Just come on out and if it is busy check in at the golf shop them put your ball in the tube and when your ball is at the bottom your group tees off. We are charging $5 for a daily rate. Go around once, twice, three times.
At Dream Junior Golf Academy, we are the proud host of Canada’s largest Junior Golf Academy. Our academy is an introduction to the game of golf to boys and girls ages 4 to 14. We operate in a fun group setting with 3 stations (full swing, putting and chipping). The kids can sign up for either the Monday sessions or the Wednesday sessions, whatever works best for the family’s schedule. We do limit signing up to one or the other. We offer 3 times on Monday or Wednesday (5:00, 6:00 or 7:00). Parents must not pick a day and time and they must stick to those times.
Once the kids are here we meet at the picnic tables at the back of the driving range and divide up into 3 groups (one for each station). Every 15 minutes we rotate to the next station giving the kids some time at all 3 stations every week. After the session kids are treated to a hot dog and a drink every week and if they are fortunate enough to sink their “challenge putt” or “challenge chip” they will receive a ring pop for a prize.
If the kids have golf clubs, bring them, if not, do not worry , we have plenty.
We do this all for the amazing low cost of $40 per child, thanks to our many sponsors. If you are interested in sponsoring this terrific program, please contact Lyndon at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Thank you to Dream Developments and both the Crossfield Recreation Board plus the C.O.R.A. program for their support, without these organizations this program would not survive.
We are also working on advanced junior options
