The Junior Golf Passport is the national structured learning programme for children aged 6-12 years, endorsed by the PGA and run by the Golf Foundation. The programme progresses a beginner golfer into a junior golfer ready for membership at a golf club.
The Junior Golf Passport has 3 key levels: START, LEARN and PLAY.
START:- is all about fun and an introduction to golf.
LEARN :- is a move towards technical instruction through games based learning, always with the emphasis on fun.
PLAY :- teaches children to apply their learning to the golf course, preparing them for potential club membership and competition.
Full details of this programme can be found at www.juniorgolfpassport.org
Our superb Assistant Professional and Junior Coach, Tom James uses Junior Golf Passport to coach our juniors.
He coaches juniors every Saturday from 9am until 3pm for hour long sessions. He also coaches our junior members during our Coaching and Competition sessions.
Contact Tom on 0116 2864759 (option 5 ) for full details.
You can join our club as an Academy member or as a Junior member.
Once you have joined as a junior member, you can take part in the Get2gethers run by our junior organisers. Throughout the season we have regular coaching and competitions. There are putting and chipping competitions; flag 30 and flag 50 competitions off the blue tees and as you progress you can play off the red tees. Those players who are ready to gain a handicap play off the red and yellow tees. Players who have a handicap can play in Club competitions.
Many of our juniors play golf for the Club and the County.
Once you are a member you will receive a diary and a handbook giving you lots of information about the things that are happening in our junior section.
