Junior Golf Program

The junior golfers are divided into two categories:  boys and girls ages 8 and 9 may join as Novice Golfers.  

Those who are 10 – 18 years old sign on as Junior Golfers. The Novice Division golfers have a reduced fee and have different playing restrictions than the older golfers.  However, they are entitled to participate in all aspects of the program which include lessons, skills clinics, weekly tournaments, and special events.

The 2022 golf season is fast approaching and so is the FGC McDonald’s Junior Program.

The Fredericton Golf Club junior program will provide a fun, safe atmosphere where juniors will be taught all aspects of the game and test those in exciting competitions. With award winning professionals. Ryan Kingston, Alan Howie and Dallas Desjardins, this promises to be a top program in Atlantic Canada. We are looking forward to a fantastic season and creating memories that will last these juniors a lifetime.

Groups will be based generally on age with Group A from 8  years to 11  years and Group B aged 12  and above. This will be kept general however as family or friends can be in the same group. Also, younger students who seem to really excel may be moved up to group B where instruction will be more precise.

SKILLS DAY– These will be every Tuesday Starting July 5th and ending August 23rd. We will work on Putting, Chipping, Pitching, and Bunker play. This will be capped off on August 22nd with a “Big Break Challenge” along with some other fun and entertaining things along the way. Some relay races will be in store for the juniors this season.

Group A from 9:00am – 10:30am        Group B from 10:30am – 12:00pm

PLAY DAY– These will be every Wednesday starting July 13th and ending on August 24th with tee times between 8:00am and 11:00am. We will mix things up from week to week to have some extra fun. Scrambles, alternate shot, stroke play, and secret partners will all add to the fun. This way they can experience all forms and get to experience team play formats. We will finish the season on the 24th with a mini tournament including a small function afterwards to cap off the season.

RANGE DAY – These will be every Thursday Starting July 7th and ending August 18th. Lessons will include all aspects from fundamentals such as grip, stance, posture and alignment to swing mechanics. We will work on specific themes each week and work closely with each student to help them excel.

Group A from 9:00am – 10:30am      Group B from 10:30am – 12:00pm

We have an amazing year lined up where juniors will not only learn golf skills but learn valuable social skills along the way helping them throughout their lifetime in all aspects.
