Our Juniors’ Section is a welcome addition to the Golf Sections within the Club. Coaching began in March 2019. Will Dowd is our Junior Coach; he has volunteer members to assist him and everyone has DBS clearance.
Each course is a block of 6 weeks costing just £15 for the period.
Here is what Will had to say in March about the first few weeks as the coach:
“We have run two very successful evenings of coaching for the Juniors; with 18 to 20 children attending each session. Thank you to all the helpers for giving up their time to assist. It is wonderful to hear the children coming back with comments on “how much they enjoyed themselves” and “how they can’t wait until their next session.”
The first block of sessions finished in April. Will was very impressed with the young golfers:
“It has been great to see so many positives coming out of the first block of sessions; the number of young people who have turned up every week and made good progress in a just a few short weeks is commendable. The Juniors have surpassed my expectations, with some of them going onto the course last week (8/04). With the weather becoming warmer, with longer and lighter evenings I hope to see the course busier with the Junior Golfers.”
The next block started on 24th June 2019 and finishes July 29th. There will be Summer Holiday courses available, yet to be scheduled.
