Junior Golf Pathway

At Greetham Valley our Professionals have devised a three tier golf pathway made up of 5 different stages that highlights how Juniors develop from complete beginners, all the way up to becoming members of the Junior Squad.

Stage 1    Junior Night    Wednesdays 5-6pm
 Further to our “Tri Golf” schools festival and visits to schools, Juniors from the age of 7+ can enrol on a 10 week block of sessions that are ideal for learning the six basic aspects of the game: putting, chipping, pitching, bunkers, irons and woods. The cost is £5 per hour including instruction, range balls and use of the facilities. Clubs can be borrowed if required to get started. Maximum 8 players per class.
Stage 2    Sundays 3-4pm
 Once it has been established that you can play shots at stage 1, this course is for those who are developing as young golfers on the courses. Sessions include playing on the Academy golf course and occasionally the Lakes first 4 holes. Enrol on the 10 week blocks at £5 per hour including green fees. We also run  fun Easter and Summer three day camps (£60).
Stage 3    Academy course membership and Academy handicap
 Those who attend Stage 2 are entitled to a 2 month free trial on our 9 hole Academy course. You can then join as a member for just £40 per year. Hand your scorecards into the Professional staff, we will keep an Academy handicap for you.
Stage 4    Lakes and Valley course membership and official handicap
 Progress to the main courses and play off the red tees. Hand in your scorecards (54 holes in total) to attain an official handicap. Join our Junior roll up and play with the more experienced Junior Team players. This is arranged by our Junior organiser, Liz. Membership is half price if an adult in your family is a full member of the Club.
Stage 5    Squad coaching and competition golf
 As a member of our squad, take part in subsidised team coaching and you could follow in the footsteps of our 2016 team who were South Lincolnshire Champions. For the more competitive we have Juniors representing our Club at county and national level. To encourage practice we have priced Junior range balls at £1 for a pre game warm up of 25 balls and £2 for 100 balls for honing your game.
