JUNIOR GOLF PASSPORT
I am delighted to announce that we will be launching our new Junior Golf Passport program in early 2017. We are 1 of only 50 clubs in the whole of Ireland who are registered to delivery the Junior Golf Passport program.
The Junior Golf Passport is the national structured learning programme for children aged 6-12 years, endorsed by the PGA. The multi-layered programme progresses a complete novice golfer into a junior golfer ready for membership at a golf club.
The programme has 3 key levels: START, LEARN and PLAY.
The START level is all about fun and an elementary introduction to golf.
The LEARN level is a move towards technical instruction through games based learning, always with the emphasis on fun.
The PLAY level teaches the child to apply their learning to the golf course, preparing them for potential club membership and competition.
However, access to the golf course and playing golf on a course are important features of the Junior Golf Passport from the START in order to develop a real connection to golf.
As well as having a physical manual to plot their progress, kids can update their progress each week on a dedicated website, where they can keep track of how they are doing and access online resources and games to help them advance their skills and knowledge even when not at the course.
Each stage consists of 20 sessions which are split into 2 x 10 and a festival of golf held at session 10 and 20, with the aim to recap, test and improve on everything learnt so far, while making it fun.
If you would like to be added to our mailing list simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following details and you will be first to know once our Junior Golf Passport is launched.
