Abbeydale is proud to boast a thriving junior section for kids from ages 5-18 years old.
Junior group coaching is very popular on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the season and is directed by our PGA Head Professional - Richard Gregory and former tour professional, now Head Teaching Professional Gareth Davies. Coaching can be in groups of similar ability or as individual lessons. We have recently been accredited a Junior HSBC Grass Roots Golf Centre and our coaches currently offer the 'Junior Golf Passport Programme' which is a nationally recognised development programme offered in groups for 8 weeks at a time at a cost of £60 for the 10 week series. This will take your budding junior golfers from complete beginners to Masters level where they have active handicaps and play regularly in competitions.
To enhance their golfing development, our coaches provide a 'Junior Evening' on Monday nights from 6pm to 8pm through the main part of the summer season. This is free to attend if the junior is already receiving coaching, and provides an opportunity for the juniors to play games, have skill challenges and most importantly play a few holes on our course from the Academy Tees with other juniors. These evenings regularly see around 20-30 juniors in attendance and is a great time for all junior golfers. Come along and see what it is like!
JUNIOR SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME
The 2016 season saw the proud introduction of a Junior Scholarship Programme. This programme can be awarded to any junior of any ability and any age, who impresses the coaches with their committment, attendance and attitude towards their golf. In return these juniors will be offered a 12 month scholarship which will allow them free membership, a Junior Scholarship Playing Shirt as well as access to further provided coaching and support from our resident coaches. In return our Scholars will be expected to represent Abbeydale in Junior team events, support the Junior Captain in their role and generally be an ambassador for junior golf at Abbeydale.
More details can be obtained from Richard Gregory or Gareth Davies in the meantime.
Junior membership is always open to newcomers. Further details about how to apply can be obtained from our Golf Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0114 2360763 extention 1.
