Summer Camps for Kids

Golf is a great game for your kids to learn early in life. Even if they do not play it consistently through the years, they can keep coming back. Golf teaches right from wrong. It teaches respect. Golf can lead to life-long foursomes and life-long friendships.

Junior Summer Golf Camps at Fairwinds are for kids ages 8 to 13. What better way for your child to spend three consecutive mornings than outdoors in the fresh air learning a new skill?

Our Summer Golf Camps teach skills at the practice facility and then apply them on the golf course. Each day children will play a few golf holes supervised by a PGA of Canada instructor.

Each weekly camp includes three, 2.5 hour sessions on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9am to 11:30am.

Camps start July 8, 15 22 & 29 and August 12, 19 & 26.

The cost of each 3 day (2.5 hours x 3) session is $140 plus GST.

Space is limited. To register call the Fairwinds Golf Shop at 250-468-7666. For more information please email Head of Instruction, Hélène Delisle at hdelisle@fairwinds.ca.
