So, no matter your junior golfer’s ability level, just beginning, or if they want to play competitively, we can meet their needs.

JUNIOR GOLF LESSONS:
Woodland Hills Country Club offers a variety of junior instructional programs taught by a talented team of professionals that are designed to meet each student’s personalized goals.

Designed for juniors who can play by themselves while knowing the basic rules and course conduct, the sessions are designed to enhance the play of our junior golf family at the club. Sessions include on-course practice while playing and learning all aspects of the game from our professionals.

PGA JUNIOR LEAGUE TEAM PLAY:
Woodland Hills is a part of the SCPGA California PGA Junior League, a group of local teams who play a series of games against each other, utilizing a nurturing and social scramble format. WHCC professionals exclusively serve as captains and create a welcoming environment for all that encourages skill and character development. The PGA Junior League is meant for ages 6-13 and those juniors who can complete nine (9) holes on their own. Registration takes place during January and February with matches against other clubs taking place from March through June.

Woodland Hills Country Club offers beginner and intermediate junior golfers two summer camps in July for ages 6-17. The camp is designed to expose young golfers to proper techniques, FUNdamentals and the value of the game. Camp sessions includes daily instruction, lunch, and tee gifts.

JUNIOR GOLF CLINICS:
Woodland Hills currently offers beginner and intermediate junior golfers a junior clinic once a month on a Saturday at $15 per junior. The clinic runs from 1:00-3:00 p.m. every session. The clinic is designed to introduce your junior to the game of golf. Aside from etiquette and rules, the junior golf clinic strives to teach junior golfers that golf is a healthy and life-long hobby. The lessons and skills learned on the course can be applied to everyday life (at home, school, and in inter-personal relationships). Members can login to our website to view the club calendar for current and upcoming Saturday sessions.

JUNIOR GOLF CHAMPIONSHIPS:
During the fall, Woodland Hills Country Club sponsors a Junior Golf Championship for multiple ages and flights. The tournament offers intermediate and seasoned golfers the chance to compete for one of three Junior Club Championships (15-17, 12-14, 11 and under). All juniors must be able to walk and complete entire golf round. Unfortunately, no "first-time playing" juniors are eligible to compete in the event.  Juniors must be the age of 17 and under the day of championship. The 2022 Junior Club Championship will take place on Saturday, November 12 beginning at 1:00 p.m. Members can sign up their juniors in the golf shop through Tuesday, November 4. (Information)
