Royal Oaks Youth Golf Programs
Royal Oaks Country Club offers a comprehensive, instructional junior golf program in Vancouver, WA under the guidance of our PGA professionals, designed so that boys and girls can develop a solid understanding of the game; for competitive play or just for fun! We offer several programs: Our Summer Youth Golf Program (held on Mondays), Elite Golf Academy, and PGA Junior League. Please see below for additional information on these programs.
Summer Youth Program-Divisions
The program is for juniors between the ages of five to fifteen (5-15) years old. The juniors are broken into four (4) groups based on age and/or skill. Our summer Youth Program is open to children and grandchildren of Royal Oaks members. Click Here for the 2017 Youth Summer Camp Packet.
Five and six-year old junior golfers in their first or second year of junior golf at Royal Oaks. Green horn golfers will play a modified 5 holes golf course setup on the upper range and will use limited flight soft golf balls. Greenhorn golfers must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
“The Tin Cups”*
Junior golfers must be seven years old or older to play on the golf course. Ages will vary from 7-11 years old. This group is intended to be for our beginning 4 hole golfers. This division will play holes #15,16,17, and 18, teeing off from the first cut of fairway. Juniors may take a maximum of ten shots on each hole before picking up and continuing to the putting green of that hole.
“The Rising Stars”*
Junior golfers must be 8 years old or older to play in the Rising Stars group. A Rising Star junior golfer must have at least two years of junior golf experience. Must have participated in the 4 hole division at least one prior year. This group is intended to be for our advanced 4 hole golfers. Ages will vary from 8-11 years old. This division will play holes #15,16,17 and 18, teeing off from the first cut of fairway.
“The Big Sticks”*
Must be able to play a timed 9 holes round in under two hours. Big Stick juniors must carry/push and manage their own golf bag and equipment. A Big Stick junior should be able to score under 70 for nine holes. Ages will vary from 8-15 years old. Boys will tee off from the white tees and the girls will tee off from the red tees.
* Advancement throughout the program is based solely on the discretion of the Golf Professional staff. In some cases a junior will have a skill set much higher than his or her age and will be placed in a more appropriate group.
Youth Junior Golf Academy
Royal Oaks Country Club is proud to offer a Summer Junior Golf Academy. Our mission with this junior academy is to create a fun, positive learning environment while focusing on the fundamentals of golf.
PGA Junior League
PGA Junior League Golf is a fun, social, and inclusive opportunity for boys and girls (ages 8-13) to learn and enjoy the game of golf. Much like other recreational league sports, participants wear jerseys and play on teams with their friends.
Royal Oaks has teamed up with Columbia Edgewater CC and Riverside CC for
these outstanding playing opportunities.
Each team is captained by a PGA or LPGA Professional, who serves as the coach and is at the forefront of creating a welcoming environment for all to enjoy the game. PGA Junior League Golf utilizes a popular scramble format that creates a nurturing environment for learning and development-both on and off the course.
