Junior Membership

 

Junior Program 2018

The Qualicum Beach Memorial Golf Club has a rich history of junior golf.  Juniors have been playing golf here for over 100 years.  Thanks to the contributions of our men’s and ladies clubs we have a junior fund allowing us to host classes, offer memberships and support our local junior talent at some of the most cost efficient rates in the country.  Head Golf Professional Neil Bidewell, past Tournament Director of the Maple Leaf junior Golf Tour, has over 20 years of experience teaching and mentoring junior golfers.  Junior golfers will not only learn about the fundamentals of golf but will leave with confidence and etiquette, skills that will last a lifetime.

During the membership, your child will be given full access to the golf course, the driving range, putting and chipping greens. They will learn correct fundamentals of technique, good practice techniques, sportsmanship, rules of the game and proper conduct on the course.  After 5PM we encourage parents and grandparents to join the juniors and play at no charge after 5PM.

The junior program at QBMGC is conducted by the pro shop. The fiscal year for the club is March 1st, 2018 until February 28th, 2019.

Orientation Day – Wednesday April 18th 5:00 to 6:00 pm
