Children/grandchildren under 8 years of age are not allowed on the Golf Course at any time unless enrolled in the Family Certification Program. Contact Golf Professionals for details.
It is the parents’ and grandparents’ responsibility to make sure all children conduct themselves in a satisfactory manner conducive to good golf so this privilege can continue.
Junior Golf Program
The Junior Golf Program is designed to guide, teach, encourage, and assist boys and girls who will be our future golfers and club members. It will provide proper instruction in the play of the game, the rules, and etiquette. It will give them a chance to play, help them to make their own decisions fairly and promptly, and aid the child in learning how to get along with other people. The goals of this program are to have the junior golfers learn more about the game, have fun playing the game, and advance to the level of their abilities.
Children/grandchildren of Golf and House Members between the ages of 8 and 17 years of age are eligible to participate in Junior events. Any child who has not reached his 18th birthday by opening day of Junior Golf is eligible to play the entire season. There will be a registration fee based upon participation.
Those 18 Hole Transit Valley Junior Golfers who have participated in the Junior Golf program within the past year are eligible to be selected to compete in Interclub until the day before their nineteenth birthday.
All Junior Golfers must have parent walkers to be eligible to play. Parents may not walk with their own child during Junior Golf Tournament days. If a parent is unable to walk a group, the parent is responsible for finding a replacement.
Playing ability, verification of proper conduct, and etiquette on the course will be the major factors in determining a golfer’s eligibility for advancement to a higher group. All advancements are by recommendation of group directors and upon the approval of the Golf Professional Staff; all candidates for advancement must also meet handicap requirements listed for each group. Once a golfer has met these requirements, advancement to the next higher group is mandatory. After all, advancement is a goal of the Junior Golf Program. Therefore, regression is not possible: once a player advances, they can only advance further, not back.
