2016 Junior Program
We've been busy creating our new Junior Program. Here is the roll out of our six-point program for the 2016 season.
1. Mike Pero Junior Clinics: "Golf Tips For Kids"
These clinics are free of charge and are open to all kids in the County!
Former Canadian Golf Tour Pro Mike Pero, who grew up as a junior member at the Picton Golf & Country Club, will once again be doing free clinics for County kids. These clinics will take place at the Prince Edward Golf Practice Facility, 1041 Hwy #49. (just north of the golf club.)
Saturday May 28th: 9:00 am to 12 noon
Saturday June 4th: 9:00 am to 12 noon
Saturday June 11th: 9:00 am to 12 noon. (This is a make-up date if either the May 28th or June 4th clinics are cancelled due to inclement weather.)
Thank you to Sandra Hoekstra and Tim Mitchell of the PEC Golf Practice Facility for their kind support and donation of free range balls for all participants.
2. Junior Member Events

3. Monday Mentor Program
We have a number of golf "mentors" that can be available on Monday afternoons June 6th to August 29th to bring our Juniors members along. This program brings value to the Junior golfing experience and encourages all Juniors, (especially those who may not have a parent who golfs) to enjoy a game in a fun, friendly, learning environment. During their game together, Mentors will assist and encourage Juniors in many areas, including:
- Pace of Play –reinforce importance of playing ready golf. Enjoy your round, but also have a focus of playing UNDER Time-Par.
- Golf Course and Game Etiquette – Replacing divots, limit practice swings, fixing ball marks, raking bunkers, where to stand so as SAFE, and not a distraction to fellow players, shake hands with hats off at end of round, etc.
- Help with on-course scoring and after round help entering scores into Handicap Indexing System.
If you would like to book a game in the Monday Mentor Program, or would like to become a Mentor, please contact the Pro Shop at 613-476-2222
