Diamond in the Rough Junior Golf Camp started in 1993. Amateur golfer, Mark Greenough saw a need for junior instruction that was more advanced than the traditional learn to golf lessons, but not at the elite stage. Diamond in the Rough ran at Emerald Park Golf Course from 1993-1996.
Mark's son John, who is currently the Head Professional at Deer Valley Golf course participated in Diamond Camp as a young golfer. He saw the same need for instruction for young golfers today and so in 2013 he brought back Diamond in the Rough Junior Golf Camp.
Students are given instruction in all phases required to become a competent golfer. Some of Saskatchewan's finest PGA of Canada golf professionals are on hand to provide expert instruction to students. An understanding of the rules of golf and an understanding of golf etiquette will also be taught. Group size of instruction is maintained at one instructor to six students. The entire facility at Deer Valley Golf Club is available for students. Direct instruction is tailored to students' ability. There is time dedicated to play and practice out on the course.
