In the summer of 2017 FELTWELL GOLF CLUB held a Family Taster Day which began a drive to encourage more youngsters into the game of golf.   With the help of Jo Bates (PGA Professional) and England Golf this has really taken off and we now have the beginnings of a thriving Junior Section.  We are supported in this endeavour by England Golf and the Golf Foundation and receive advice as well as some funding and the opportunity of liaising with other Clubs.  

We now have 15 Juniors split into two groups – Birdies: the younger children and those totally new to the game and Eagles:  for those youngsters who have a better idea of the game and have played a little before.  During the winter Junior lessons are held on a Saturday afternoon from 1.30pm and in the summer on a Tuesday from 4pm until 7pm. Feltwell Golf Club has an excellent practice area, with a full length Driving Range, Practice Bunkers, Chipping Area and Putting Green on which to hold lessons.

Their time doesn’t just centre on playing the game they are given tuition on the Rules and Etiquette of the game as well as how to fill in their score card! - each child, on joining, receives a Junior Passbook which will track their progress in the game. We have installed Junior Tee Markers on the fairways enabling them to play competitively amongst themselves and the course becomes less daunting.

We will periodically be holding Junior Socials to help them get to know each other better and learn more about the game of golf by incorporating golf orientated games and quizzes.

We don’t insist on children being members to start their tuition, book them in for a block of lessons and if they enjoy themselves, they can then join the Club.  As members they do receive lessons at a discounted rate.  If you have any children interested in joining us, please contact the office on 01842 827644.
