Parent and Junior Expectations
Parent and Junior Expectations
We are honoured to have the opportunity to teach your child the great game of golf.At EHGC our three key philosophies for our junior golfers are as follows:
·Our #1 focus is instilling a love for the game of golf
·Creating an environment to learn the game, make friends and have fun
·Making champions in golf and in life
We are proud of the success we have had over the past 7 years in helping juniors in our area on their journey with golf and life. We are always looking for ways to make our programs the best for you and your junior golfer. Our team of experienced coaches wants to make the sessions the best experience for your child and give the best coaching possible.
To do this there are some clear guidelines and expectations to review for both you and your junior. This allows us to make the most out of the time we get with your junior golfer each week. Open and honest feedback is always encouraged and wanted, as we see the communication line sometimes breaks down between coach-junior-parent.
