START, LEARN, PLAY…GOLF

Golf South Ayrshire’s new for 2018 Junior Coaching programme aims to enhance the lives of young people through playing golf with regular sessions held at Belleisle Park, Dalmilling or Troon Links starting on 16th April.

The equipment needed to take part is very minimal; a pair of trainers with good outdoor grips, and clothing suitable to the weather conditions is all that’s needed. The rest will be provided on the day.

The Junior Golf Passport is a 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.
The programme is delivered in 6-week blocks covering a subject each week with a family festival in week 6 to allow the child and parent to play golf together in a fun environment.

The programme covers the following key areas of golf;
