Junior Golf

The Williams Lake Junior Golf Club is designed to be available for youth between the ages of 6 and 18, for all genders and abilities, and is structured to be a no cost entry program to the sport of golf with zero fees for registration.

The program is led by the WLG&TC General Manager and CGTF Certified Instructor, Rob Yaworski, joined by other volunteer instructors and mentors and jointly funded by the Williams Lake Golf & Tennis club and community donations.

The youngest and newest members of the Junior Golf Program will start building their skills through fun games that begin to teach the basics of the game as their dexterity and motor skills grow. These games can include activities like hitting larger balls into hoops placed around an area. We also have smaller, lighter, plastic clubs that we use for “play” to start to develop the swing and motion of golf.

Slightly older and more skilled players will start to play the course from Junior tees, placed closer to the greens that allow the junior to move backwards as length of their hits and drives extend. Chipping, putting, and driving skills will be developed and practiced on our putting green, chipping green, and driving range.

Our oldest members, and most skilled players, will still use our practice facilities to continue to practice and build positive muscle memory and correct techniques but full round play will be integrated as well as competitive play in various formats.

Across all age groups the program strives to teach the fundamentals of the sport

  • Driving
  • Chipping

  • 9 and under from 4:00PM to 4:45PM
