Working with a professional makes learning the game of golf a lot easier and lets you improve more quickly, both of which add to the fun of playing golf. City courses offer a variety of clinic and lesson options geared to young golfers.

Clinics

A one-time clinic is a great way to get into the swing of things, and a clinic series helps you to build up skills.

Our courses offer free one-time junior clinics, as well as a selection of paid clinic series throughout the season. Clinics are offered by City of Toronto’s golf partner, Golf Plus Marketing. Contact individual courses for more information.

Toronto golf courses have a lot to offer to juniors looking to play in competitive events. Juniors have a long history of strong participation in our annual Club and City Championship tournaments. For those looking for even more opportunity to hone their game and competitive spirit, there’s also the Toronto Junior Golf Tour.

Club and City Championships – Juniors

Each of our five courses hosts an annual Club Championship tournament with a Juniors Division. Qualifying golfers from each Division go on to challenge players from each of the five courses at the City Championship.

Toronto Junior Golf Tour

A great way to get outside, check the City’s courses and get better at the game of golf!

The Toronto Junior Golf Tour is a series of eight one-day tournament events that take place at all of the five City golf courses, ending with a Tour Championship at the Don Valley Golf Course. Medals are awarded at each event, and there are great opportunities to win prizes throughout the season.

The Tour is open to Junior golfers aged 7-18 years. There’s no required skill level to participate, but participants need a general knowledge of the rules of golf. Golfers compete within their age group, with Divisions for participants aged 7-11, 12-14 and 15-18 years. The cost for participation is $100, plus an 18-hole green fee at each event for players who do not have a City Junior Membership. There a $25 fee for the final Tour Championship event.
