Junior Golf Members

It’s that time of year again. Snow still covers the course but day dreams are filling up with pictures of deep green fairways being split by perfect drives.
 
In just over a month the junior members will be sitting in the 2019 orientation sessions (all juniors must complete orientation prior to accessing the tee sheet). The junior committee and the pro-shop staff have already been chatting about the 2019 season and building on the momentum created during 2018. Jake McNulty will be running an evolutionary version of the junior program this year integrating league nights and coaching sessions with the focus being development of life long golfers. We will be looking for junior volunteers to advise the junior committee going forward. We look forward to working with junior members that represent the diversity we have in our program to gain feedback and look to improve the program. We will continue to host events that incorporate family members of all ages. Our goal of truly building an inclusive program built around a community of junior golfers and their families will continue in 2019.
 
The junior program/prize fund relies solely on the the generosity of our membership. Our largest fundraiser is the raffle on opening night. However, our efforts never really stop. If you would like to donate a raffle prize for that fundraiser or provide sponsorship of the junior program directly, please contact the committee at juniorolf@oshawagolf.com. If desired, we can discuss how your sponsorship dollars will be put to work as the 2019 program rolls out. It won’t be long until we get things truly rolling and footsteps of our youngest members will be heard around the clubhouse and course. With your support, we can build off our successful 2018 season.
 
We will be communicating with the juniors primarily through the Instagram account – please ask to follow the account as soon as possible if your aren’t already.  The user name on Instagram is ogcc_juniors. The web page (https://www.oshawagolf.com/Golf/Junior_Golf.aspx) will be a key access point for information during the season. We’ll continue to lean on e-mail as well to spread content and reminders re: events and program updates. 
 
At this point, the key dates to keep in mind are April 6th and 14th. At noon on both days we’ll be hosting junior orientation sessions. We chose The Masters Sunday for a reason – where else would you want to watch the final day of the Masters.  Junior league will start in May and will be on Monday evenings again this year. The calendar for the year will be provided at the orientation.
 
I look forward to working with the committee and Jake to ensure 2019 is even more engaging for our junior members. I can’t wait to welcome back our returning junior members and meeting those that are new to the course.
