What do we do?
One of our main goals of our Junior Association is to further promote the "family atmosphere" at the Club through a strong commitment to a complete parent/junior activities program.
Our Junior Association calendar year begins June 1 and ends May 31. Applications are available upon request and may periodically appear in the Club's mailings. Applications are accepted through-out the year. A Junior bulletin board is located in the downstairs entry-way and all particulars are available from members of the Golf Shop Staff.
Since the formation of the Club in the early 60's much emphasis has been put forth in the perpetuation and support of Junior activities at the Club. Our history shows a year-round activity for our aspiring youths.
Beginning in early June our weekly clinics begin, offering a choice of a beginner class and one for the more advanced. Junior playing privilege bag tags are issued for Association approved golfers with competition scheduled weekly, awards and prizes are presented. Parents are encouraged to tutor and play often with the youth. Our Junior Championships are annually scheduled for August.
An event that is scheduled most months is our Adult/Junior Saturday event. A clinic is conducted for each category. Play on the course after the clinics emphasizes etiquette, rules and the rudiments of playing the game. Various special vacation activities are scheduled each year including social events.
Our Juniors, along with High School members are encouraged periodically to volunteer and assist the Club when large tournament activities are scheduled. Duties would include care of the golf course, cleaning golf clubs and assisting various committees at the Club.
There are many competitions at local area golf courses offered through-out the year and several Junior Golf Associations locally that may be joined in conjunction with the programs our Club offers. We here at the Club are very proud of our history of youth supported activities in our area.
Since the formation of the Club in the early 60”s, we have hosted our two local High Schools; Cabrillo High School from the beginning to current and Lompoc High School from the beginning to the early 80's when they moved to a facility closer to their school. Our Club has also hosted many CIF sponsored events, Coastal Valley and Santa Barbara Junior Associations events as well as local Boys and Girls, YMCA, and similar charity events. We are committed to continuing this history.
Yes we are a busy, positive group
enjoying our involvement with this great game.
