The LABsters Junior Golf Program has been running since 2010. In this time, LABsters Coaches have become award-winning coaches for the development and creativity in this program. With a team of helpers and coaches, the LABsters has introduced the game of golf to now thousands of kids. Many juniors have moved up in our program and gone on to win National and Provincial Tournaments. We have over 20 players that have gone on to play college golf in the NCAA Div I, Div II, Div III, and NAIA.
Since Jacob and Olivia began with the
LABster’s Junior Golf program in May of 2018, they have not only progressed in their abilities, but also in their love for the game. Chris and his team really have a wonderful ability to make each lesson fun and engaging; while meeting each child’s needs to ensure growth and understanding of the game. I’ve rarely seen a head coach so willing and able to take the time to truly connect and explain to a child, of any age, the fundamentals of golf in a way that is both fun and amusing. The LABster’s Junior Golf program has given us the ability to enjoy the game of golf as a family, and for that, I am always grateful!
Participating in The LABsters programs have been such rewarding experiences for our family over the last several years. The youth coaching team is so engaged with the kids and they genuinely invest in each and every student. They are kind, patient, respectful, encouraging, fun and also highly skilled athletes! Chris has done an amazing job developing a variety of program options so that students and families can find what is right for them. And we should also mention that Northview is a really beautiful backdrop!
Coach Chris is an excellent coach. He has a natural ability to connect with his golfers and to keep them engaged in their learning and motivated to improve. He approaches his work with patience and professionalism to ensure his golfers develop strong fundamentals. In addition to learning golf skills, Coach Chris also encourages his golfers to approach life with positivity, poise and determination. Our family will continue to be part of the LABsters Program for years to come.
All our three boys are enrolled in the Labsters program. I, being an avid golfer wanted the kids to learn from the best coaches and facilities and we found that at Labsters at Northview Golf Club. Coach Chris is one of the most dedicated coaches I have met. What sets Coach Chris apart, other than his dedication, is that he covers the mental aspects of the game as well as the physical swing when coaching. This program provides skills that help you become confident, focused and physically and mentally tough to play the hard game of golf. Our kids always look forward to their lessons and have fun and enjoy a lot, as stressed by their favourite Coach Chris. I would certainly recommend this program for future and budding golfers
