COMPETE is the highest level of the Sawmill Junior Experience. In 2024, the COMPETE program will consist of two Performance Teams and one Development Team, designed to advance juniors through the competitive golf pathway.  These three teams will be chosen from applicants based on the age and skill level of the juniors.  Each team will have separate weekly instruction/practice sessions.  All juniors will play together in the Monday Ryder Cup matches and Sunday Junior league to promote friendly competition and drive each other to be better.  This is an advanced program for learning and skill development that is intended only for those juniors driven to be the best players they can be.  

Please carefully read the details below about the Development Team and Performance Teams.  Click HERE for a 2024 Development Team and/or Performance Team Application.  Completed applications should be emailed to Carrie Julie at  Acceptance will be based on a variety of factors including age, skill level, potential and past experience.  

These teams are coached by Brody Whetham and Kevin Niznik, PGA of Canada Professionals.
