We’ve been coaching Junior Golf for over 20 years.  We pride ourselves on offering an enjoyable environment for children to learn whilst still producing some fantastic young Golfers.

Our Academy

Within our Academy sessions, we cover all the technical aspects of Golf as well as encouraging the various social and life skills that Golf has to offer.  Whilst fun and enjoyment is at the heart of each session, we take huge satisfaction in helping each Junior Golfer reach their full potential.

We use the Golf Access system which encourages children to get out on the Golf Course.  Whilst within the sessions we focus on working on the skills the children need to play on the course, we offer lots of opportunities for them to put their skills into practice to try and achieve the next level.

We feel that parents involvement is important to a child's Golf development.  Although we politely ask that we are left to do the coaching, we do use a communication system called CoachNow, which enables us to keep the parents updated with what we have been practicing.

Parents can feel free to stay and watch,  take a seat in our clubhouse and enjoy a coffee or have a practice yourself as we regularly run family golf competitions!

Sessions are 1 hour long and run for 50 weeks of the year (2 weeks off at Christmas.) They take place at: 

Ferndown Forest Golf Club
Forest Links Road
BH22 9PH
