Niagara Parks Introduces New Junior Golf Programs

Niagara Falls, ON – Niagara Parks Golf and its Legends on the Niagara Golf Academy are pleased to announce a full slate of new golf development programs for junior golfers of all skill levels.

Former LGPA player and Canadian Golf Hall of Fame member, Cathy Sherk and veteran PGA Professional, Geoff Law have created the “Little Legends” program, featuring one hour clinics to introduce young golfers to the sport of golf and to develop their skills in a way that is both educational and fun. The clinics will begin in mid-May and run through to September. Young golfers will be divided into various age groups with a maximum class size of six, thereby allowing more meaningful attention and hands-on instruction to take place.

For young golfers who no longer consider themselves beginners, the Legends Golf Academy is also offering a 16-week “Junior Competitor” comprehensive program. Led by Cathy Sherk and Head Teaching Professional, Norm Moote, this program is tailored for those junior golfers interested in the competitive side of the sport. Participants will receive group instruction, a personalized improvement plan, access to the latest technology for swing analysis, unlimited practice balls and access to the Chippawa 9-hole course on clinic days and monthly play on either the Ussher’s Creek or Battlefield courses at Legends on the Niagara. For further information and rates, please contact Head Teaching Professional Norm Moote at or (905) 295-9595 ext. 249.

As well, throughout the 2017 golf season, Niagara Parks welcomes junior golfers 19 years and younger to play any of its three championship courses including Whirlpool, Battlefield and Ussher’s Creek for just $35.00, when they walk the course. Beginning June 27, junior golfers can also play and practice for free at the 9-hole Chippawa course, when accompanied by a full paying adult golfer.
