JUNIOR GOLF COACHING
Juniors come high on our list of priorities at the Golf Academy. For the last 15 years the Junior Golf Academy has been one of the largest and most successful in the UK. Parents are reminded that to achieve PGA Qualifications, coaches have to complete all DBS checks necessary and undergo regular updates in child teaching methods. Parents should always check that coaches and facilities have passed the correct Safeguarding Children Workshops and have the correctly displayed certificates, as well as First Responders First Aid qualification as required.
We are proud to announce that from January 1st 2014 we were appointed a Centre of Excellence and a GET INTO GOLF Regional Centre by the governing body England Golf , under the Range Mark award scheme – one of only a couple in Lancashire. Two of our coaches are also appointed as Development Coaches to the Lancashire Union Of Golf Clubs and Lancashire Ladies County Golf Association and work with Juniors in several age groups to reach County Playing Standards.
Group lessons normally take place at 9.30am, and 11.30am on Saturday and 1.00pm on Sunday. Juniors are grouped where possible in terms of age and/or ability to ensure each individual receives the information best suited to them. Each group contains a maximum of 10 children and lessons are always delivered by 2 PGA/EGTF qualified coaches, ensuring individuals receive an ample amount of individual attention per session.
Although good technique is the central subject matter of the lessons, we aim to incorporate aspects of etiquette and rules as much as possible as these are the elements that we feel set golf apart from other sports in terms of a child’s development.
Call by, check out our facilities and meet our coaches any time during the week, who will be happy to show you around and explain our approach.
The cost of the rolling six week course is still £60 which importantly includes any equipment needed and all range balls as applicable – no extras . The costs of balls and equipment are normally extra if you compare elsewhere.
SPECIAL COURSES CAN BE ARRANGED FOR SMALL GROUPS AT ANY TIME and see our special Girls only pages for the new activities for GIRL GROUPS ONLY which began on Saturday and Sunday, 9th and 10th November 2019 .
