Indian Lake Junior Program
Below, you will find links to information about the program. If you have any questions, or would like to have a registration form sent to you, please send an email with your request to clubhouse@
indianlakegolfcourse.ca. Registrations will be made on a first come, first serve basis, with priority given to returning players. We will limit the number of golfers to 12 for the program, but will consider adding a second day depending on demand.
We at Indian Lake are invested in the game and introducing it to the golfers of tomorrow. Our junior program offers not only top-notch instruction but it also allows the kids to have fun and develop friendships that will last a lifetime.
Our eight-week program involves 1 hour of detailed instruction on the driving range which will allow the junior to work on improving the fundamentals of his/her swing. As well as working on there swing we as well work on the core values of the game, which are the most important aspect of the game. Below is the list of values that we focus on.
Golf is a game of etiquette and exposure. Players are responsible for their actions and personal conduct on the golf course, even when others may not be looking.
Players must know and abide by the rules of golf and be able to conduct themselves in a kind and respectful manner towards others, even in a competitive game.
In golf, it is important to show respect for oneself, playing partners, fellow competitors, the golf course, and for the honor and traditions of the game.
Confidence plays a key role in the level of play that one achieves. Players can increase confidence in their abilities by being positive and focusing on something they are doing well regardless of the outcome.
Players are responsible for their actions on the golf course. It is up to them to keep score, repair divots, rake bunkers, repair ball marks on the green, and keep up with the pace of play.
To succeed in golf, players must persevere through bad breaks and their own mistakes, while learning from past experiences.
A round of golf should begin and end with a handshake between fellow competitors. Players also should be still and quiet while others are preparing and performing a shot.
Using good judgement is very important in golf. It comes into play when deciding on strategies and choices on and off the course.
It is important to appreciate your fellow competitors no matter what the outcome of the game might be. Camaraderie, mutual respect and friendship are integral parts of golf.
Golf is unique from other sports in that players regularly call penalties on themselves, and report their own scores.
