When the grass starts getting greener, it means golf season is upon us! If you’re looking to introduce your kids to golf or want to get out on the links as a family, there are many Calgary-area golf courses that have family deals or special programs for young golfers. Here are just a few family-friendly courses.
(You can find family golfing deals or events here.)
City of Calgary Courses
The City of Calgary public courses offer a variety of options for families and junior golfers, with Lakeview and McCall Lake getting a special mention. Families can apply for a Junior and Family Subsidy Program for programs at the Confederation Park, Shaganappi Point, and McCall Lake courses. Visit HERE for more information on subsidies and HERE for special deals.
You can also find free junior golfing (with a paying adult) at city courses — and other golf courses — during Take a Kid to the Course Week.
