Our aim is to introduce juniors to the game of golf in a stimulating and enjoyable way. We are committed to providing a safe and friendly environment where juniors can develop their golfing skills. We encourage friendship, respect for others, and playing in the right spirit of the game. We provide social and competitive golf for juniors, and encourage, develop and prepare juniors for integration into adult golf.
The club has obtained the “Accreditation Higher Award” and this reflects the Clubs commitment to a National Scheme that identifies and recognises junior and beginner-friendly clubs.
Child & Young persons safeguarding
We welcome young golfers of all ages and abilities from total beginners to single handicap players. We extend a warm welcome to all juniors and help them realise that golf is a fantastic sport in which social skills and sporting excellence develop side by side.
We have two levels of membership:
Primary school, Annual subscription £25.00
Secondary school. Annual subscription £75.00
(Juniors of primary school age who are children or grandchildren of FULL members are free)
Coaching and playing
Our aim, first and foremost, is to ensure that our youngsters enjoy themselves and learn new skills through focused tuition from our Professional staff and qualified volunteers. Regular taster sessions are organised which centre on the basic elements of golf. Graded activities range from short game practice sessions, chipping, putting and bunker technique to 18-hole competitions for the most accomplished.
During term time most coaching sessions are held on a Saturday morning and are organised by the club professional and his coaching staff.
All junior competitions are played during the school holidays, and this is the time when juniors who need to gain a handicap do so under guidance from the Junior Organiser.
Rules for the Junior Section (Girls and Boys)
