If it’s Junior Golf, it’s got to be The Ontario Country Club!
Our PGA professional team, OCC Director of Instruction Linda Opalisky and her teaching partner for 29 years, Peter Konefal, are experienced at all levels of junior golf, from pee wees to state championship winners. We promise to always be role models for integrity and respect for others, while we preach safety, fitness, respect, pace of play, teach lots of golf “lingo,” and make sure your children learn how to be comfortable hanging out at the club.
All instruction is done by Linda and Peter and we maintain small class sizes.
- No need to buy clubs if you don’t have them, we’ll be happy to provide what you’ll need.
- Camps are non-competitive, stressing accurate score keeping over having the lowest score.
- Remembering names all around is a sign of respect for each other….we work on it!
- The personal time we spend with our campers is one of the things that really sets us apart from the norm.
Ontario CC Junior Golf Programs
Early season: Saturday Morning Indoor/Outdoor. We start inside at the Ontario Parks and Rec on the turf. As soon as the weather is warm enough to be outside, we move over to OCC to put it to use! This is good program to introduce golf to newbies or to ease the more seasoned out of their winter hibernation.
Spring Programs: Wednesdays after school. Early season golf lets beginners get started while experienced players get a chance to shake the rust off from the winter layover.
Half Day: Morning or afternoon starts with some stretching. Then we introduce skills that require little to no athletic ability, but that are essential for future success at golf, should your son or daughter start to enjoy the game and choose to see how good they can get. We’ll whack some drivers, roll some putts, and loft some wedges! Our 6-hole mini course gets ample use, and on occasion, we’ll get out on the “real” course, for some “practical” experience. There’s plenty of walking, and we carry our own clubs. Half days are perfect for getting to know the basics of golf.
Full Day: Start with the morning session, stay for lunch and then go a little deeper into ball striking skills improvement, with more individual attention as the group gets smaller when the morning half-day players leave. The mini course will be used for further instruction on safety, pace of play, rules, and different golf game formats. On course time is used for instructional purposes with one day reserved to play as many holes as we can.
Try-A-Camp: Two day option, Mondays and Tuesdays only. Take part in morning camp sessions to see how you like it. Suitable for any junior not sure about golf or about a golf camp, perfect for Pee Wees (5 and under).
Play Camp: A blend of skills analysis, “targeted” instruction, and on course “Play with the Pro!” We use distance appropriate tees with different game formats. Paying attention to how your pro approaches the game is required. This is NOT just go out to play, it shows kids how to play, which is different than just how to hit a ball. Play camps are not suitable for beginners and any Junior, that we don’t already know, needs to be approved.
