2016 saw the introduction of the Junior Academy and continues to grow. This very exciting children's academy is designed to educate children all about the amazing game of golf in a fun and friendly environment. They will learn all about the different aspects of the game, the long game (driving, fairway woods, long irons) and the short game (short irons, pitching, chipping and putting). As well as technique, the Academy aims to inform the children of the importance of etiquette and sportsmanship. Often overlooked when teaching children, etiquette of the game is so important to learn valuable life skills such as integrity, honour and trust. And through the freindship they make it also helps them develop good communication skills; all important parts of golf and life! The academy works on a 6-week term basis with clear developmental structures in place to ensure the progression of the children.
Our Junior Coach and PGA Pro, Ainee O'Connor, runs fun holiday golf camps throughout the year.
New comers are very welcome. We can provide golf clubs but please feel free to bring along your own equipment.
The camps take place at the Driving Range (accessed via Willoughby Lane).
Please book early to avoid disappointment. Dates will be displayed here as they are released. .
