B.G.C. JUNIOR DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Our goal is to provide safe, enjoyable opportunities to learn and play golf.
Hello Juniors and Guardians, welcome to the 2019 golf season!
This has been one of the coldest and wettest springs that I can remember in some time… But I am very optimistic for the summer sun and all the fun summer will bring.
Many thanks to the volunteers from last season who made a difference in the junior golf program! If you would like to continue helping or would like to give a hand this year feel free to let me know.
This year the junior clinics will be held on Tuesday’s starting at 11:30 am. With all the summer activities and fun to have, we thought it would be helpful to start a little later in the day instead of so early in the morning. Groups of juniors will be much smaller, only 6 to 8 juniors per group. I really want to spend more individual time with the kids in a more meaningful way. I strongly believe that the juniors will learn more skills and will gain more enjoyment from the game of golf.
Wednesday July 24th will be PGA of Canada Atlantic Pro/Junior FUN golf tournament held at the Abercrombie Golf Club in New Glasgow. I will be taking three junior members for an exciting day of laughs, delicious hamburgers, great prizes, and, oh ya…golf. Like last year there will be a 9 hole play in. Top three net score will make the team. Reminder juniors need to have a handicap for this. If you don’t have a handicap and would like to keep track of your scores to get a handicap please come speak with me to get set up in the handicap computer.
