Junior Section

Open to boys and girls aged under 18 from complete beginners to low handicap players. Once they reach 18 there is an automatic process for them to become full members. Our aim is to give an introduction to the wonderful game of golf in a stimulating and enjoyable way. We hold regular improvement clinics and competitions for juniors of all ages and abilities. Boys and girls have equal rights to enter our junior competitions. Most clinics are held on a Thursday Evening.

We have a responsibility to the juniors to promote:

  • Junior golf within the club
  • A welcoming environment
  • Basic teaching
  • Adopting EGU and ELGA Children in Golf Child Protection guidelines
  • A junior coaching system to monitor/measure the junior's progress
  • A junior membership with minimum restrictions - regular competitions

By using the Golf Foundation’s Passport to Golf programme we cover all the principle areas of golf from basic golfer’s code to putting, short game, long game and final playing on the course.

If you are a parent or grandparent how about getting the children involved, maybe giving them membership as a birthday or Christmas present. It is the one present that will last a life time.
