As you would expect from a well-run Club, we have a strong Junior section for boys and girls. under the age of 18. Our Assistant Professional Sam Beckett is the Club's Junior Organiser on a day to day basis. He is backed up by other members of the Professional Team and other Club members, particularly Barry Doggett who is the Club's Junior and Academy Liasion Officer. To demonstrate that we take junior golf very seriously, Barry is an Officer of the Club therefore sits on the Club's Golf Committee.
From a golf perspective, we offer junior golfers a good range of specific competitions and matches. In addition, in the main playing season, we run a junior development hour every Monday at 5.15pm. Junior members have free and full access to the course, just like adult members at any time for social golf.
Our Junior Organiser and the rest of the Professional team are focussed on ensuring that the Club's juniors are well taught in all of the fundamentals and basics of the game. They fully recognise that golf's rules and etiquette are good life skills and that most boys and girls want to be as good as their talent allows. We have junior members who are already playing for the Club's scratch teams and have qualified for county, regional and national junior competitions. If the boys and girls want to develop and have the determination to really excel we have both the Practice facilities, the teaching staff and the course to respond.
Safeguarding and Child Protection are fully recognised by the Club as an Underpinning element in the running of any junior sport or other activity. As you would expect from a well-run Club all the staff and professional staff who work with Juniors in the Club and the Academy have been safeguarded and DBS cleared by either their own professional body or by England Golf. Parents/ Guardians will be asked, either as their children joins our Academy or renews their season ticket every year, to authorise their child's attendance at the Club. Equally, Parents/Guardians are asked to handover their children to our care, via the Pro Shop on each occasion that they visit.
