Junior Skills Challenge

2024 details will be updated as soon as they become available.  2023 information is posted below as a reference. 

We hope that you enjoyed your 2023 experience.  We LOVED hosting you here at our Sawmill qualifying site. The results are HERE.  

1st, 2nd & 3rd place in each division received a prize as a token of their success.  We hope that the real prize was Driving! Chipping! & Putting!

Unfortuantely, our Boys 12-14 group and our Performance Team ran into severe weather and many could not finish or didn't get to start.  The Challenge results had to be uploaded to Golf Canada on Monday so there wasn't time to reschedule.  We apologize for this. 

We hope that your golfer will keep playing, practicing, and dreaming!


This is Canada’s version of Drive, Chip & Putt!!!  The objective is to develop golf skills and to provide an important (and FUN!) introduction to competition.

Junior Skills Challenge is an online and interactive program that focuses on developing the key golf skills of putting, chipping and driving. The online leaderboard allows instructors (Sawmill will do this) to upload players’ scores so they can view their standing on the National Leaderboard. The top competitors nationally are invited to compete in the annual Junior Skills Challenge National Event.

In 2022, Sawmill hosted the largest qualifier in Canada.  Here are some pictures of the day:
