Our Road to Golfing Success
Rather than telling a young golfer how to swing a club, we feel that to keep a child engaged it is vital introduce a skill through carefully planned games which allow the child to learn through feeling instead of technical positions.
All of our sessions are delivered by a PGA qualified teaching professional through the Junior Golf Passport framework. This gives parents and children a clear road to success through the three stages of Start, Learn and Play.
