Sessions can accommodate as little as 2 people and up to large groups, can last as short as 1 hour or up to a full day and can include full swing, short game and/or playing lessons.

Are hosting a tournament and have important employees and/or clients who prefer not to play but still want to be a part of the event? We have a solution! How the day works: all of your guests show up at the same time and enjoy the pre-tournament hospitality, then when the golfers hit the course, the non-golfers meet in the Performance Centre to begin a fun filled day of learning with our team of Certified PGA of Canada Professionals. This is a great way to ensure all of the people who are important to the success of your business get to be a part of and enjoy the great event you’re hosting!

Junior Program

The Priddis Greens Golf and Country Club junior lessons are for first time to experienced golfers. Lessons are made up of four age/skill appropriate golf development levels that the golf instructors will teach and guide juniors through. In each level, juniors will learn important techniques, as well as sportsmanship, etiquette, and then graduating into on course playing lessons. Last, but not least, juniors will meet a lot of new friends while continuing to grow the great game of golf.

Juniors and parents will notice that some exercises, most notably in the Tiny Tigers Program, do not look relevant to golf. It is during your child’s first few years of golf that the emphasis will be placed on physical literacy. Learning agility, balance, coordination and speed are vital in the control of beginner junior golfers. Games and other sports such as throwing a ball will develop basic hitting actions, and catching will develop proper hand-eye coordination.

Once the season is over parents and juniors can discuss with the instructor the progress made and plans for next year. Options could be continuing to develop skills at their current level or progressing to the next level. Private lessons are also a popular avenue for juniors looking to get more serious while learning at a 1-on-1 level.
