Junior Golf Seasonal Memberships
Deerpath welcomes junior golfers ages 9 - 18 years old. This membership is a great opportunity for junior golfers to develop their skills and meet other golfers their age. Play is allowed any time after 1:30 p.m. Good golf etiquette will be stressed.
Junior Golf Etiquette
Golf is a fabulous game to teach young people the values of honesty, respect and responsibility. The Junior Golfer's Creed provides a framework for juniors to learn their relationship to the game, their conduct on the course and respect for themselves and others.
The Deerpath Junior Golfer's Pledge
Golf is a wonderful game. As a Junior Golfer, I will RESPECT and be good to the game of golf. I will learn the rules of golf, follow the rules of the course and take responsibility for all my actions on the course.
I will abide by the rules of etiquette, awaiting the proper time to hit, refraining from foul language and boisterous behavior, and generally conducting myself as a young lady or young gentleman on the course.
I will keep up with the group ahead and maintain an appropriate pace of play.
I will strive to leave the course in better condition than I find it, by fixing my ball marks (and those of others), replacing my divots, raking bunkers, and properly disposing of trash.
I will learn and embrace the rules and traditions of this ancient and honorable game, and respect my fellow golfers and the courses we are privileged to play.
