Junior Golf & Camps

Bing Maloney Loves Junior Golfers

The Bing Maloney Golf Course is proud of its status as an official The 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 The 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.

Each week one specific age group will play at either Bing Maloney, Haggin Oaks or William Land Golf Course.  Participants will utilize what they have learned in previous classes and apply it on the course.  The skill level of the participants will improve as they play with other junior golfers they may not know, as well as at a golf course that may not be their home course.

Participants must be able to play 9 holes independently and in a timely fashion. Green fees are not included. Participants are responsible for those on the day of play.
