Youth Lessons

Junior Development Program

Ready to learn and have fun? The objective of the Cantigny Golf Junior Development Program is to provide every parent and junior with the best learning opportunity for golf. Our Program has four stages of involvement, and each stage is a framework for further development and skills. As the stages evolve, key skill concepts are required which most likely were learned from the previous stages.

Entry Stage Pee Wee and Little Linkers
Awareness Stage Introductory Clinics-Levels 1 & 2
Developmental Stage Skill Progression-Levels 3
Excel Stage Players Performance Development-Level 4


To enroll your child in Cantigny Golf's Junior Development Program, please review the available clinics to determine which program best meets your child's level of experience.
