Giving Juniors a first step in Golf

It is one of our key aims to bring new people into the game, and as part of our commmitment to the sport,  we welcome all juniors to our

world -class facilities to try golf for the first time.  We have built strong ties with local schools, the County Sports Partnership and the Golf Foundation to encourage children into the game.

Our Junior Merit Award Scheme,  for children aged 12 and under at the start of September school term,  is designed to take youngsters from beginner through to their first official handicap.

The scheme is specifically designed around our own facilities, creating a detailed pathway for players to follow before joining as members. The scheme is a mixture of "process" and "outcome" tasks,  giving children a challenge, some fun and a broad introduction to the game.


Junior Academy Merit Awards take the pupil to the point where they can participate in short course competitions.

Level 4 takes them through to their first official CONGU golf handicap.
