The City of Mill Valley is proud to present Youth on Course, a program sponsored by the Northern California Golf Association (NCGA), designed to encourage junior golf, as well as family golf play locally. YOC offers discounts to numerous courses in Northern California for particpating juniors. As an example, an adult can take a YOC member to courses like Harding Park or Bayonet/Black Horse in Monterey with a junior fee well below the normal fare.
As part of the NCGA’s YOC program, and in partnership with Mill Valley Recreation, the Mill Valley Junior Club hosts junior tournaments throughout the year, including our annual Parent/Child event and Junior Club Championship. Membership includes the YOC card, membership into the NCGA with a host of benefits (ncga.org), as well as discounted play Mon-Fri for only $5 (a daily savings of $8-10).
Gil Bennett, as a PGA Professional, also provides private lessons to junior and adult players, again with a discount for interested junior golfers. Gil’s students range from raw beginner to National champions. For information regarding the Junior Club or private instruction, please call the Golf Shop directly at (415) 388-9982.
Par 3 Course
In addition, we have completed a special Par 3 course inside our traditional course to encourage play by beginners. This special short course comes complete with proer tee markers, yardage plates and scorecards.
