The 27-hole premium golf facility in Kanata plans to grow the game by providing programs created to introduce the younger set to the many benefits of golf.
“We’ve hooked up with the CN Future Links Clinics program to introduce children aged four to 10 to the game on Saturdays starting in June and continuing on throughout the summer,” said Andrew Donaldson, director of golf at The Marshes. “These clinics are for boys and girls looking to discover golf as they learn the FUNdamentals. This grassroots initiative encourages participation and every clinic will have an open registration for $10 plus HST per golfer.”
The Marshes’ PGA of Canada professionals will go with weekly golf themes from grip to follow-through, from etiquette to putting and more.
Meanwhile, the Junior Golf Camps for children aged seven to 11 are slated to happen beginning in July.
The one-week camps have been scheduled to run throughout July and August on The Marshes’ European PGA-approved short course, MarchWood, and the Marshes Golf Academy.
“The camps are designed to implement the core principles in the CN Future Links’ Learn To Play program, which is Canada's junior golf development initiative that was created by the Canadian PGA and Golf Canada,” said Donaldson.
Each week the campers will learn important golf skills and techniques, as well as leadership, sportsmanship and etiquette.
For players aged 12 to 16 who wish to take their games to higher levels, The Marshes will tee up its weekly Transition to Competition Coaching sessions beginning in June.
“The Transition to Competition Coaching program has been developed for junior golfers who are interested in taking their golf game to the next level,” Donaldson said. “The program consists of 20 sessions that are strategically scheduled to help the athlete reach their peak performance. It encompasses all aspects of athletic development and performance in accordance with the Long Term Player Development program by Golf Canada.”
