The Town of Oakville's four-week golf programs, offered in conjunction with David Fritz Golf Academy, will get you in the swing of things before you hit the links. Participants work on balance, hand-eye coordination and their golf swing in a group setting. Sign up today!

Golf – Active Start (ages 4-6) – FULL

Golf – Learn to Play (ages 7-9) participants will work on balance, speed, hand-eye coordination and athletic development to form the basis for a sound golf swing.

Spend quality time together while learning a skill that will last a lifetime! All aspects of the great game of golf will be covered by a qualified PGA professional in Golf – Parent and Child. Parent (ages 18+) registers but attends with one child (ages 7+).

Golf – Get Ready (ages 18+) is a unique program geared towards adult novice and beginner golfers. Designed to teach everything you’ll need to play golf in just a few lessons, students will gain an understanding of the different aspects of the game, etiquette and rules.


Tell us how we’re doing!

We value your input and want to hear about your personal experiences with our recreation and culture programs and facilities.

Following Recreation and Culture’s commitment to continuously improve our programs and services, an electronic customer feedback system has been introduced to our registered programs participants.

If you are currently registered in one of our programs, you will be emailed a short survey after the last class for your candid feedback. This is your chance to tell us what we’re doing right and where we might need to do better to improve service to our customers.

Not currently enrolled in a program, but want to share your thoughts? Simply email iris@oakville.ca or connect with us on Facebook or Twitter!

Be sure to check your inbox after your last class. We look forward to hearing from you!
