Our junior development has seen many successes over the years and with the recent introduction of 2 new Membership categories this will surely continue!
The Club is committed to working in the local community to offer any child the opportunity to develop the necessary skills to enjoy this wonderful game. We have 3 key levels to introduce children to the game
START – This is all about fun and an elementary introduction to the game
LEARN – This is a slightly more technical level of instruction through games based learning
PLAY – This teaches the children to apply their learning and applying it to playing the course.
In addition to our Championship standard course, a short, 6 hole, par 3 course has been developed on our practice ground specifically for the introduction of children to the game.
Our Club Professional, David Wood and his Assistant, Phil Wesley host popular coaching sessions where children will be taken from their first swing to competing in Club competitions, to find out more about these lessons please contact either David or Phil on (01375) 891797
