The club has a flourishing Junior Section run by volunteers [in conjunction with the club and the Pro] and we aim to offer the chance to learn and play golf in a safe and enjoyable environment. The club has achieved GolfMark Accreditation having met High Standards in Coaching and Playing, Club Environment (including Sports Equity and Ethics), Child Protection and Duty of Care.
Boys and girls participate on an equal basis and are offered experienced coaching and competitive opportunities. Our juniors can play the game in one of three formats that reflect their age and/or playing abilities:
- Beginners – a chance to play on the short ‘blue’ course and in Flag 50 challenges
- Improvers & Development - junior competitions for ‘high handicap’ juniors are awarded a handicap of between 29 & 54]
- Proficient - junior and club competitions for ‘low handicap’ juniors [holding an official CONGU handicap: boys 28 or below, girls 36 or below]
