Supporting one of the most recognized Junior Golf programs in the area, Whitford's dedication to advancing the game of golf through our junior family members is unparalleled.
Want proof? Many of Whitford's current members were at one time participants in our Junior Golf program.
The Junior Golf program at Whitford Country Club has a rich tradition of success, teaching children to learn and play the game of golf. Each summer, there are numerous opportunities for junior golfers to learn and have fun while engaging with their peers. Junior Golf clinics begin in May and continue right through the summer, while designated junior golf play is scheduled one day a week. Junior Golf is a welcoming program that includes not only opportunities to learn, but to enjoy the game with friends through on-course play. From pretzels and lemonade to entertaining games — and the occasional water-gun attack — a summer spent in the Junior Golf program is one to remember.
Whitford Junior Golf Academy is geared more towards the dedicated junior golfer and is open to all juniors ages 8 - 14. Generally, three (3) sessions are offered each summer, limiting the number of participants to ten (10) golfers per session. This allows a 5:1 student-teacher ratio which gives each student quality time with our professional staff. Along with four (4) days of group interaction and instruction, our juniors are exposed to competitions where the students have the opportunity to win prizes by competing in games throughout the day. Lunch is also included each day. All certified junior golfers in the 9 Holers or 18 Holers have the opportunity to play unaccompanied by an adult throughout the golf season. They do so by successfully passing a ten (10) question exam composed of general knowledge questions and a playing ability test.
