Junior Membership

The club has an active Junior section where all ability and ages of players and their families are made welcome by the club. A club junior organiser together with the professional and volunteers arrange a number of activities for juniors to play and most importantly enjoy their golf. The club has achieved the Golfmark accreditation having met high standards in coaching and playing opportunities, club environment (including sports equity and ethics), child protection, safeguarding and duty of care.

Boys and girls participate on an equal basis and are offered coaching and playing opportunities whether for fun or competitive. Our juniors play the game according to three levels of ability:

Beginners – play the short course from the “black” junior tees and flag 50 challenges.

Developers – play the full adult course and can gain a club handicap starting at 54.

Proficient – play the full adult course having gained a CONGU handicap of below 36 for girls and 28 for boys. These players are welcomed by the club to take part in adult competitions on an equal basis.

Opportunities to Play Golf

The junior section most commonly gets together as a group and plays on Sunday afternoons. This is both for competitions and also to have friendly games. Juniors are welcome to play the course at any time just like adult members for social golf. Activities take place throughout the year with a greater quantity between April and September.

In addition the club encourages juniors to take part in events run at other clubs such as Open competitions (some clubs offer beginners events too) and also county/ representative level. A number of our juniors have enjoyed success at representative level.
