Achievements to date
Littlestone Golf Club has been actively coaching junior golfers from the area for many years. In various forms we have developed school coaching programmes which we actively promoted through our outreach programme, currently run by our PGA coaches. In addition to our in-school programme we have a well attended junior academy. Every week there are sessions on Saturdays, during the evenings in the summer and of course the very well attended junior camps we run during school holidays. Our academy currently has 35 children in various age categories all of which receive a free membership for the golf club to get themselves onto the course with their friends and coaches.
Looking to the future, our next goal is to ensure these children have a great time playing golf and create friendships for life, and to also provide a pathway into golf for life. Many junior golfers are lost after they have had their initial coaching and introduction to the game. The club is committed to ensuring these children are not lost and are encouraged and mentored by the PGA staff and the club as a whole. It is exciting times for golf and we are looking forward to welcoming a whole new breed of golfer to the links of Littlestone, and for anyone else who wishes to get involved in the game.
