Youth Links Certification
Get certified to play!
Junior golfers at least 8 years old who want to play the Cantigny Youth Links without adult supervision need to be certified. The certification process is easy, and no previous course experience is required! Simply enroll in the Level 1 Certification Clinic. This is the first clinic in our series of Awareness Stage: Introductory Clinics.
Certification Testing/Make up Testing/
Junior golfers with previous clinic or private instruction experience from a PGA /LPGA Professional are eligible to bypass the Level 1 clinic. Students who select this option will need a signed letter from their previous instructor -- Youth Certification Form. To gain unsupervised playing privileges, the junior must successfully complete the Certification Testing.
Juniors who were enrolled in the Level 1 classes and missed the test day can also come to these test dates to complete the exam. Please come with the class dates and name of the class that was taken.
September thru October by Appointment only
