Call for Special Junior Nominees for the 2023/2024 seasons
Do you know an exceptional young person who would like to be considered for the opportunity to become a junior member at HGCC?
Over the last number of years, the Board of Directors has permitted a limited number of outstanding juniors from the Greater Hamilton community to join the Club. Each applicant must meet specific qualifications, be interviewed, selected and have their name circulated to the membership before final approval. Those that are successful will be active juniors for two seasons.
The purpose of this program is to strengthen our connection to the community and promote the game of golf. We want to provide an opportunity for junior golfers in the Hamilton community, that do not have a family connection to HGCC, to experience a junior membership and its benefits – friendships, competition, networking, etc...
We encourage the membership to share this outstanding opportunity with young individuals who may wish to be considered for this amazing chance.
