The club has a flourishing Junior Section run by volunteers (in conjunction with the club and Pro). We aim to offer the chance to learn and play golf in a safe and enjoyable environment.
Coaching and learning to play
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 and 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.
Our PGA Professional, Michael Bent, runs the Kibworth Junior Academy. He offers group and individual coaching sessions throughout the year using any one of the club’s extensive practice facilities:
Grass 300-yard driving range (including 4 covered bays)
The short game practice area (Bunkers/chipping green)
Practice putting green
The sessions are open to both beginners and more experienced juniors. First session is free.
