We offer an opportunity to learn the game and progress.

Our Head PGA Professional Barry Austin is well qualified to teach our junior golfers and has been doing so on a Saturday morning for the past 5 years. During that time he has seen many develop and improve into golfers that are ready to tackle the golf course and compete in competitions and  some improve to mid-handicap golfers..

Juniors include both boys and girls and their ages range from 5 to 12 years.

Coaching sessions include work on the golf swing, slowly building to a level fit to go to the course with confidence. Chipping and putting is included as well as teaching etiquette and dress code. We explain the basic rules of the game to ensure all are equipped to play the game whilst complying with the rules.  Competitions are organised and the course is marked out with a short course for beginners.

There is no strict sign up to a session, anyone who fits the age profile only has to pop down to the club on a Saturday morning (10 to 11am) just "roll up" and the session will be available.  Why not make it a Summer Holiday activity. Barry would love to see you and he promises to make it fun time for everyone!

The cost is minimal (£3 per session). “Roll up” sessions are every Saturday from 10 until 11am. Parents are welcome to join the group on the course or alternatively enjoy an hour’s relaxation in the clubhouse with a coffee and sandwich.
