Golf Builds Friends for Life

LPGA players Paula Creamer, Pat Hurst and Dana Dormann along with PGA Tour Professionals Todd Fischer and Joel Kribel all have something in common, they all came out of the Castlewood Junior program. Here, they played on two championship golf 18-hole golf courses, playable year-round and offering the golfer a variety of challenges.
The Castlewood Junior Golf Program aims to have one of the best programs among all private country clubs in California. Our mission is to offer a complete junior golf development program for juniors of all ages and all levels, starting with beginners and extending through to seasoned high school players. In 2017, we are happy to announce that we have added several new junior golf programs to offer junior golfers of all ages and abilities access to more learning, social and playing opportunities.

Merit Scholarships for Junior Golfers: For the past 20 years, Castlewood has been offering Merit Scholarships to young aspiring golfers who otherwise may not have the opportunity to play on two high quality championship courses. Applicants must meet stipulated criteria that includes both golf and academic achievements. Details of this program are available by clicking here or contact the Golf Shop.
