Junior Golf Program

Our junior program is designed to provide all ages and skill levels the opportunity to learn and enjoy the game of golf now and
for a lifetime. Juniors can start in our instruction programs as early as age 5 and become members at age 9. We truly believe
that golf can become one of a child’s primary sports. It is a sport that challenges them athletically, while providing an environment
nurturing life skills such as honesty, integrity, responsibility, confidence and sportsmanship.
Our instruction program provides an avenue for beginning players to take their early footsteps into the game and extends all the way
to players who have competitive ambitions locally, provincially and nationally. Our golf events provide our juniors the opportunity
to play in individual and team competitions, while also providing fun events where score is the last thing that matters! In fact, if you
participate in all of our scheduled golf events you will have played over 40 games of golf without ever booking a tee time!
The junior program is an important component to the family atmosphere at St. Charles. We want all of our members to feel welcome
to bring their children to the club and learn the game of golf. Golf is one of the only sports where you can play with your children
and not just watch your children play. Please feel welcome to contact any of our professional staff for more information on our
Junior golf and instruction programs.

Family Tee program

As part of our Junior Program, St. Charles is proud to offer a Family Tee program to our membership. The Family Tee program is
designed to encourage our members to introduce their children to the game of golf. This program provides a golf course set up based
on how far our young golfers can hit a golf ball. The course has BLUE and GOLD tees (plates) set into the fairway much like our
150 yard markers. Juniors starting at age 5 and up to age 12 should play these tees based on their skill level.
As part of this program, children of members aged 5 to 8 are now able to use the practice facilities and golf course when
accompanied by their parent. We ask that parents please observe the practice facility and golf course access restrictions as listed

Practice Facility Permissions – Putting Green, Short game and Driving Range
Weekdays – before 11:00 am and after 6:00 pm
Weekends & Holidays – After 3:00 pm

Golf Course Usage
Weekdays after 5:30 pm
Weekends and Holidays after 4:30 pm
Must be accompanied by a parent at all times
Must keep up with the pace of play and always let faster groups play through

Club Dress Code applies. All children must be accompanied by their parent at all times.
Scorecards for Family Tees will be available in the Pro Shop. Parents will want to use directions to the tee areas until you are
familiar with the locations of the markers on the course.
We are excited about providing the opportunity for our members with young families another component in which to introduce their
children to the game! Please feel free to speak to any of our professional staff regarding this program.
