The staff at the Woodlands Golf & Country Club is extremely excited about the upcoming Junior Golf season/tournament schedule and hopes you will choose to participate in this worthwhile program. The program’s main goal is to help junior golfers have FUN and develop a love for the game of golf, the rules, and the etiquette that is so often associated with the sport. The Program aims to help every junior become the best golfer he or she can be.
Clinics will be held on Fridays at 4:15 PM. Clinics will run weekly, rain or shine, from January through the Friday before Thanksgiving. Clinic topics include putting, chipping, other short game topics, and full swing topics. The topic and location of a weekly clinic may change dependent upon weather. If so, the Woodlands will notify all participants as soon as possible.
There will be three junior specific tournaments throughout the year. The first will be a scramble, held in June, where the two or three juniors will play with a member of the club. The member will play from the tees he or she normally plays and the juniors will play from the set of tees that best fit his or her ability. The second junior specific event, held in July, will be a best ball tournament. Two or three juniors will be paired up and will play the tees that best fit his or her ability. The team will then keep track of the best net score on each hole. The final junior specific event will be Junior Club Championship, to be held in August. Each player will play the tees that best fit his or her ability and the lowest gross score will be the winner.
The Woodlands will also host the annual Parent Child tournament in July. This event will be a two person captain’s choice; with the parent playing the tees he or she would normally play and the junior playing the tees that best fit his or her ability.
The Club will also have at least one junior flight (depending on participation) in the Par 3 tournament in November. Juniors will play the tees that best fit his or her ability and the event will be handicapped.

Head Golf Professional(803) 788-7771 ext 1 firstname.lastname@example.org
I woke up Christmas morning in 1994, excited as any kid would be, to open presents. I had no idea one of those presents would get me to where I am today, a plastic set of golf clubs. Ever since then my passion for the game has continually grown. After high school at Spring Valley, I set out on a path of becoming a golf professional. I graduated from Golf Academy of America Carolinas in December of 2015. My studies involved Tournament Operations, Advanced Methods of Teaching and Complex Golf Operations. I moved back to Columbia to pursue my career as a golf professional and to be around my family and friends.
