Junior Program


2018 Junior Program 

 

Mountain Woods endeavors to develop junior golfers for both recreational and competitive play. Programs are designed to help young players develop skills, learn the rules and etiquette of the game of golf and have fun playing this great game.

The junior members are very important to our club. With the assistance of a junior coordinator and some members the program has been expanded to include additional events that could not be completed by golf club staff in previous years.
