Do you know a child that would like to try golf?
We encourage children aged between 5 and 16 years old, members and non-members to join us every Sunday between 2pm and 3.30pm for fun based activities learning the basics, meeting other Juniors and making friends. Our mission is to create a structured pathway into a lifelong pursuit. Each Sunday session is￡10 per child and limited to 8 children with all equipment provided.

The Club has created a new junior membership which is called the 'Links Academy membership.' The section's aim is to help juniors gain on-course experience and become comfortable playing the golf course on their own. This will help to bridge the gap from Sunday academy coaching to full junior member, as this is an important time in a child's development in golf. The membership will allow the junior:
- Access to the golf course (Orange Tees) after 2pm mid week and 4pm on weekends
- Full use of the Par 3 and practice facilities all day
- Discount in the bar and kitchen
- Chance to gain a handicap
The membership is £60 for the year and can only be used up to 2 years before obtaining full junior membership. If you would like more information on the new membership or know of any children who would benefit from this please contact the office by emailing [email protected]
