Junior Golf Program Re-opening

The following health precautions and standards will be required for reopening the Cantigny Junior Golf Clinic Program in accordance with CDC, local and state government mandates. Our objective is to welcome back customers as safely as possible. 
Please be aware of what is expected of everyone once on property: 
  • Don’t risk anyone’s health.  If your junior is not feeling well, please reschedule.
  • Everyone is to avoid making any physical contact during a clinic series and maintain the recommended social distancing (six feet).
  • Instructors will wear gloves throughout the clinic series (and masks indoors).
  • Instructors will have personal hand sanitizer / anti-bacterial wipes with them at all times.
  • Instructors will not touch golf bags.
  • Instructors will not tee up the golf balls for juniors.
  • Instructors will not use training aids that touch the juniors.
  • Juniors are reminded to not touch their face and wash hands after daily clinic.
  • Juniors may take their own notes with their own pen.
  • Juniors may bring their own water.  
  • Eating during the daily clinic is discouraged.
  • Each junior will be provided a small bag of 30 tees upon check in to keep and use throughout the clinic series
  • If borrowing clubs for the clinic series, the junior golfer will be assigned the clubs for the entire series (taking home with them daily).  Grips and clubs will be wiped down with anti-bacterial wipes prior to and after use.  
New Format:  
The junior clinics will be transformed from an “organized youth activity” into a small private lesson series.  The student to instructor ratio shall NOT exceed 5:1. The instructor will remain with the same small group for the entirety of the series (same juniors & same instructor).  Your assigned instructor will deliver the social distancing, curriculum and testing for your junior golfer(s) to pass the required level.  You will meet your assigned instructor in one of the two locations throughout the five class clinic series: 
  • Golf Academy 
  • Youth Links
Every small private lesson series will have a new designated start time (spaced similar to our course tee times) to control drop-off and pick up.  
Example:  20 students originally enrolled Level 1 at 4pm-5:30pm
4;00pm – Instructor (Hyatt) Group Academy
4:15pm – Instructor (Favia) Group Academy
4:00pm – Instructor (DeMattia) Group Youth Links
4:15 pm –Instructor (Burns) Group Youth Links
