ClubGolf Stage 1 is a two-year course comprising 20 hours of coaching in each year and participating children will expect to develop their basic golfing skills.
Golf skills taught in year one include putting, chipping and the full swing. Their training also equips them with a fundamental understanding of the game including rules and etiquette, and they will learn a code of conduct that will ensure their golfing experience is safe and fun. Year two builds on the skills learned in the first year, with pitching and bunker play added to the programme.
The ClubGolf Junior Golf Passport has been designed to reflect the skills taught up to ClubGolf Stage One, and is an excellent resource for children participating in this stage of the programme.
As our national junior golfing strategy, ClubGolf seeks to do what is right for Scotland and aims to widen opportunities, increase participation in golf, and build foundations for Scottish success on the world stage.
Delivering golf to children on a scale never previously seen in Scotland involves recruiting, training, developing and retaining an ever expanding group of children and adults.
