Junior Golf program at Dufferin Heights
I am pleased to send you some dates and information regarding the Junior Golf program at Dufferin Heights. Last year, we began a program to introduce golf as a part of the PE program in your child’s school, and we will repeat this again next year. We are hoping that all local children will eventually have the opportunity to discover a sport that can be enjoyed for a lifetime.
At this time, I am sending information and important dates to note regarding the summer program for 2017. As part of a new initiative, the membership fees for juniors were drastically reduced last year. This year, the cost for juniors to join will be $86.23. Additionally, thanks to the Tillotson Foundation, the program owns 14 sets of junior sized clubs, thus your child can sign the clubs out for lessons, for hitting balls on the range, or going out to play with a parent or grandparent. Being a part of the summer program entitles the children to free weekly lessons beginning Wednesday, June 28th, 2017 and running on subsequent Mondays through August 7th, 2017. The lessons run from 8 am -10 am with the older and more experienced players then going out to play a round of golf. The following Tuesday and Wednesday, the 15th and 16th of August, all the children will have the opportunity to participate in the Junior Club Championship! There will be many more fun activities over the course of the summer including tournaments with young golfers from other clubs and the Parent-Child tournament. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions. You can also contact Dufferin Heights directly at 819-876-2113.
Here are some important dates that you should add to your calendars:
Wed June 28: registration and first lesson
Mondays July 3, 10, 17, 24, 31 and Aug 7-lessons # 2-#7
Sunday, August 6th Parent-Child tournament

We are looking forward to working with your children
