I am Scott MacDonald, a PGA of Canada Golf Professional and owner of Juniper Fairways, which is a 9 hole public par 3 golf course including a driving range.
I started my career in golf in 1980 when I enrolled in the CPGA Apprentice Training Program. I qualified for the Canadian Professional tour in 1986.
I purchased the land in 1989 to develop what is now known as Juniper Fairways. Starting with a driving range and spending numerous hours studying golf course construction methods, he has created a par 3-9 hole course which has six pairs of tee off blocks on each hole.
Since 2002 Juniper Fairways has hosted small golf tournaments for charities like the Alzheimer Society and the Kids Help Phone. The course offers different challenges to all golfers whether they are a beginner or an expert.
Since 2006 I have been the Professional; Instructor for the Junior Golf Camp at Lombard Glen Golf & Country Club held the second week of July each year, in conjunction with the “Take a Kid to the Course Week”.
I have also run a similar Junior Golf Camp at Juniper Fairways the third week of July at a cost of $150.00 per week giving the students not only help with putting, hitting the ball, but lesions in golf etiquette. A 9 hole golf game is also played at the end of the weeks lessons.
Private lessons are available for $60.00, groups of two at $100.00 or groups of three at $35.00 each or groups of four at $30.00 each.
I have offered to the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization free golf for any child accompanied by their big brother or big sister, giving them the opportunity of spending time together and in many cases learning the great game of golf.
I volunteer my time to the Royal Canadian Legion during the winter months whether it be in the kitchen or helping with repairs.
Open as of April 1st any day that is plus 10 degrees C
