Welcome to Wellow Golf Club Junior Section News Blog.
Wellow Golf Club offers a free membership for 1 year for any Child or Grandchild of a member and we have more junior options that can now be found on our new website.
The past year has been a successful one for the current junior members culminating in playing in the finals weekend of the National Poppy Golf competition at Staverton Park in October in which the team were runners up.
There has been great progression, in all aspects of the game, throughout the section with ongoing coaching sessions by the Junior Academy’s professional coach , Danny Harris. Proof of this was shining through in last year’s Captain Zak Leigh as he not only improved his handicap but swept the board in winning almost all the Junior Trophy’s.
Danny run’s a junior passport scheme where new golfers are introduced to the basics of golf through play and fun activities leading up to more intensive selected coaching sessions.
At Wellow we believe that the learning the game of golf develops the player not only in improved sporting ability but in a strong mental integrity.
Next year’s plans for our Junior members are already in place with a minimum of 24 internal competitions already in the diary and a range of external competitions will be added as soon as they become available for entry.
This year’s Junior Captain, Lewis Sutton, also has new ideas for additional events.
Our winter programme continues with monthly stablefords and Saturday morning coaching every other week in preparation for the 2017 summer season and anticipation of another successful year.
