Junior Golf Camp
The purpose of the Lake Arbor Junior Golf Clinic is to provide knowledge and understanding for the game of golf as well as life skills to prepare them for the future. The series of lessons included are designed to introduce each junior to the basics of the golf swing and basic golf rules.
The clinic is a three-day series of lessons that will start with a basic rules seminar for all participants. Please be aware of the starting time of each session as they will take place at different times. All juniors participating in the junior program will be taught the basics of putting, chipping, pitching, and the full swing. Parent and guardian volunteers are encouraged to come out to the course on Day 3 to caddie and assist with their child's on-course experience. There will be a limited number of juniors allowed in each class in order to allow for the best possible ratio of students per teacher. The age range is 6-18 years old.
Day 2: Irons and Driving, Safety, Etiquette
Day 3: On Course Play, Course Management
Beginner Night/Family Night
Lake Arbor Memorial Foundation for Junior Golf
Lake Arbor Memorial Foundation for Junior Golf Foundation Tournament will NOT BE HELD THIS YEAR DUE TO COVID-19.
Access to the game of golf is difficult for young people because of the high cost of green fees, the cost of learning the game, and the cost of equipment. To further the wishes of past advocates of Lake Arbor Junior Golf, The Memorial Junior Golf Program has been set up. The program goal for juniors is to make golf available and accessible to youth with the support of positive developmental efforts and programs.
Throughout the year, Lake Arbor offers special rates for juniors (ages 7 to 18): $10.00 for 18 holes in the afternoon on weekdays. In addition, Lake Arbor offers a junior golf clinic, a five-session series of lessons teaching the game of golf. Each Tuesday between 7 am and noon, juniors are taught the basics of putting, chipping, and the full swing. The student-to-teacher ratio is kept low to allow for the most individualized attention to the junior golfer by the golf instructors. Lake Arbor and West Woods golf courses also have junior clubs which any junior golfer may use FREE.
Lake Arbor Memorial Golf Programs' major fund-raiser is the Lake Arbor Memorial Golf Tournament. Funds received from this tournament are used initially to facilitate access to golf for underprivileged junior golfers through donations of workable equipment and donated funds. Lake Arbor loans equipment free of charge to junior golfers who cannot afford to buy equipment.
The Lake Arbor Memorial fund was also proud to give out 11 scholarships to students who have had financial difficulties in attending college. The fund was also used to help underprivileged children who could not afford to be in the Lake Arbors Junior clinic series.
The fund is also used for The Arvada Cup. The Arvada Cup Tournament Series is a developmental league that prepares juniors for competitive golf in a fun environment.
