Junior Program

2021 Junior Golf Program

Welcome to the Junior Program at Westfield Golf & Country Club. 

We are excited for another busy summer of learning and enjoying the game of golf.

This page outlines the details of the program and will give you the information you will need to confidently be prepared for the program and golfing season. 

Mondays are Clinics with PGA of Canada professional Steve Leblanc (June 28, July 5, 12, 19, 26, Aug 9, 16)

  • Clinics will be separated by age  groups and will run for 50 minutes in length.  
  • Classes will be at 9:00/10:00/11:00/12:00 each Tuesday. 
  • Junior golfers have the option to play after their lesson is complete, but   they must book a tee time in advance. Juniors are allowed to book a tee time any time after 11 AM.  
  • Juniors will require their own clubs for the clinics. Balls and tees are not necessary. 

Tuesday is Junior Field Day (July 6,13, 20, 27, Aug 3, 10, 17)

  • The tee sheet will be blocked for juniors from 11 am – 1:00 pm. 
  • Juniors must sign up to play in the Field day no later than Saturday.
  • Juniors can sign up for the field day on the website or emailing the junior coordinator (westjuniorcoordinator@gmail.com).  
  • The juniors will be put into groups based on age and skill level and each foursome will also have a Senior Junior member in the group to assist with pace of play and course etiquette. 
  • Juniors have the option of playing  6 Holes (takes approx. 1.5 hours), 9 holes (2 hours), 13 holes (3 hours) or 18 Holes (4 hours).  
  • The Junior Coordinator will also be driving around helping the groups as they play. 

Wednesdays are Skill Development with Junior Coordinator Chris Hachey. (June 30, July 7, 14, 21,28, Aug 4, Aug 11, Aug 18)

This format follows the same timelines as Monday clinics in terms of length and time slots. If a junior is in the 9:00 class on Monday, then  we expect them to be in the 9:00 am class on Wednesday as well. 

The golfers will not have the option to play after clinics on 

Wednesday due to Ladies day/ Mens night.

Thursdays are lessons for golfers 15 years or older with PGA of Canada professional Steve Leblanc

Drop Off & Pick Up

Parents and guardians should drop off and pick up their child at the club house. 

If you wish to stay, we ask you park in the bottom 

parking lot as there is limited space up top.

Parents are welcome to stay and relax in our clubhouse while you wait  for your child to complete their classes or round. Please note the restaurant does not open until 11 am each day.
