The Ontario Golf Academy Junior Camp is an industry leading full day golf program that is conducted weekly throughout July & August. This is a fun and dynamic program for kids ages 7-13 that is led by award winning PGA of Canada Head Teaching Professional Cory Southon. Junior camp participants will develop the necessary fundamentals and club delivery skills that will provide them with a proper foundational start in the sport.  Unlike most junior camps, we offer on course training that provides each participant with the opportunity to learn playing skills, rules, strategy & etiquette at Whistle Bear Golf Club.


  • Lead by award winning PGA of Canada Class A Head Teaching Professional Cory Southon and his well trained professional staff.
  • No experience or equipment necessary. We will provide properly fitted equipment to participants who do not have their own clubs.
  • Participants learn to play golf through skills development training stations and on course play at Whistle Bear Golf Club.
  • Full-day program: drop off at 9:00am and pick up at 3:00pm.
  • 6:1 golfer-to-coach maximum ratio.
  • Camp celebration and awards ceremony on Friday afternoon.
  • Tuition is $399 + hst.
  • Space is limited to the first 24 participants – we anticipate this program will sell out – sign up now!
  • Whistle Bear members receive priority registration.
  • Camps will only run if there are 6 or more participants.
