Who can join?

How Does it Work?
Your child attends any of the Instruction Clinics we sponsor where they will be guided through a three level instruction program designed to make them “course ready”. Clinic fee of $15 must be prepaid. Download the Course Ready Report Card below and take to the first clinic.
Upon completion of the three levels, they can participate in the Little Vikes Events at the Cordova Bay’s Ridge Course where our volunteers, many of them Junior Tour Members and former Little Vikes, will teach them “how to play a golf course” as opposed to how to swing or hit a golf ball. In other words, they are instructed how to move around a golf course quickly, safely, and with courtesy. Importantly, they should continue to attend Instruction Clinics to continue to improve their technical skills even though they have passed the three level program.
When deemed ready they can start to participate in our Ridge Course Tournament Series where they will play with members of the Tour and recent graduates of the Little Vikes Program.
Finally, and again when deemed ready, they graduate from Little Vikes and join the Tour.
