Training and Competitive Opportunities
Competitive and development programs are available to suit individual skill levels. Edge golfers can participate in tournament play throughout North America. Students also get supplemental practice and instruction during the competitive season. Edge School fields golf teams in the highly competitive Calgary Independent Schools Athletic Association.
Edge golfers are on the move! Every school year, the Golf Director plans and organizes golf trips designed to encourage passion for all aspects of the game…and maybe even fuel the thoughts of a golf scholarship! Students participate in fall and spring tournaments throughout North America and a winter training camp in a southern climate. This provides the young golfers with the chance to develop game-tough mental skills, experience travel and golf challenges and an introduction to college coaches and programs.
It is not an exaggeration to say that Randy Robb, Golf Director brings the very best in youth golf training to the Edge.
