Junior Golf & Camps

Bing Maloney Loves Junior Golfers

The Bing Maloney Golf Course is proud of its status as an official First Tee golf facility. The First Tee is an international not-for-profit organization with a mission “to impact the lives of young people by providing facilities and educational programs that promote character-development and life-enhancing values through the game of golf.”

Bing Maloney is committed to providing youth golf programs that teach golfing skills, life skills, core values, etiquette and rules of the game and provide junior golf tournament competition as well. To qualify as a First Tee facility, our staff had to have a coach fully trained to present the core values and life skills within all the junior golf programs at our facility.

Bing Maloney Golf Course offers many youth programs, including golf camps and playing programs throughout the summer.
