There is a very
active Junior Section at Strawberry Hill Golf Club, with boys and girls
between 6 and 17, covering a range of abilities from beginners to a few
with single figure handicaps.
The aim of our junior section is to help youngsters enjoy their golf,
whatever level they aspire to, in a friendly and safe environment.
For all enquiries on Junior Golf and Junior Membership please ring the Junior Organiser, Margaret Bedford on 020 8940 5044.
There are regular competitions throughout the year, some serious and
some fun and we have organised competitions against other Clubs and
Sections of our Club. This helps the youngsters develop their match play
skills and also to learn golf etiquette.
Our Club Professional provides group coaching courses for juniors.
Members and non members (aged 4 to 17) are welcome to join these
sessions. These lessons make use of the Junior Golf Passport which sets
attainment targets for youngsters combined with incentives and rewards
to create fun, enjoyment and motivation.
For more information on the Junior Coaching or to book a place, please ring our Professional Peter Buchan on 020 8898 2082.
The Club is fully committed to developing the Junior Section and
ensuring that all of our younger members feel really involved. To that
end, we have been awarded the high achiever status for GolfMark, the
nationally recognised quality standard in this area.
But perhaps more important than the policy of the Club is the very
positive attitude among the other members to the juniors, encouraging
them to join in the adult Club competitions where possible. It is now
quite common to see juniors featuring in these events, and, of course,
the junior members are also welcome in all the Club's "fun" competitions
such as the Friday evening Roll Ups throughout the Summer.
