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.
