Competitions for junior members are held every Saturday evening (9 hole) and on Tuesday mornings during school holiday periods (tee reserved 9.00 a.m. - 10.00 a.m.).

We have a Junior Committee and our Junior Captain is Lorcan O’Brien.

COACHING

Commencing Saturday 28th March the first session of Junior Golf Ireland Coaching Programme is being run by our Club PGA Professionals, Paul and James. This is a skilled based coaching programme at 2 levels.

Level 1 covers all the nesessary skills required to start play and develop the game of golf for both boys and girls 8 - 12 years of age.

Level 2 targets those who have completed level 1 and covers all aspects of the game.

Each level consists of 6 sessions.

It is strongly recommended that all new junior members complete this coaching programme and who knows, we may discover a budding Padraig Harrington or Rory McIlroy in our midst!

 

How to Join

We encourage every child to try golf and we provide a welcoming and fun introduction to the game. Our Junior Committee and Pro’s are all vastly experienced in developing and coaching ¬†children of every age.

We suggest that any child interested in starting golf that they first experience what its like to play with others and parents can bring their child to the club on Saturdays at the above times. There is no need to buy any equipment what so ever, as our Pro’s can provide everything that a beginner would need for a small deposit.

After the exquipment is organised then is time to practice!! the Safety of everyone is our top priority and this is especially the case for all our Juniors. Our leaders will normally start every child off with Putting. This activity allows children to practice holding a club properly, learning about stability and control while still having the fun of mini golf.

Whats the next step?

Contact out one of our PGA Pro’s and check when the next beginners program is starting. Feel free to ask any questions or join us in the Club at one of our Open days.
