I have spent much of my last 15 year's devoted to developing the junior programmes at both Styal Golf Club and the Cheshire County Academy Programme since its launch in 2010.
The friendly accessable facilities at Styal GC make it the perfect environment for Junior golf.
The Player Performance Programme
Introduced in 2016 to bring together some of the finest up and coming young players in the North West.
A competitive and fun learning environment to motivate and push the young golfer to achieve their potential.
There are currently two squads, an under 13 and an under 16's. Application for places for the 2017 September intake will be open from April 2017.
The Cheshire County Academy Programme (CAP)
The Cap programme was launced in Cheshire in 2010, the goal to provide quality coaching to Cheshire's potential upcoming younger talent and to then progress them to County playing.
The Cheshire County Academy Programme has been recognised for it's contribution towards junior golf finishing 3rd at the UK Sport Academy Awards under the category of Coaching Intervention of the Year Award. This was across all sports in the UK in 2013.
5 Level Programme - Age 9 and above
These are weekly 1 hour coaching sessions that last for 8 weeks. We have a Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter programmes. Level 1 is for complete beginners followed by a pathway to Level 5 where junior golfers will have handicaps on the main course and are proficient, knowledgeable and competent to play on any course.
A unique programme that is designed specifically for the younger golfer. Filled with fun games, challengers and playing and progression opportunities. Each junior progresses through the award scheme collecting medals and prizes along the way, records kept in their own progress folders.
We run a host of well supported junior events and competitions throughout the season. We have two order of merits, one on the main course and one on the par 3. these include our version of the'majors' including the British Open, The Masters and Ryder Cup.
