The Juniors Section is led by the Junior Organiser assisted by volunteers from other sections in the Club. TGC has received accreditation as a ‘SafeGolf’ venue with all safeguarding procedures for young persons in place. Relevant DBS checks have been carried out and all safeguarding procedures for young persons are in place; the name of the Centre’s Safeguarding Officer, and relevant certificates, including evidence of safeguarding training, are posted on the Junior Section noticeboard.
A number of Junior players play on the 18 hole High Course and have attained handicaps, and the number is increasing year on year.
Younger, more inexperienced golfers receive regular coaching sessions, with occasional competitions on the Par 3 course.
At TGC, we are very lucky to have excellent facilities. The professionalism and friendliness of junior coaching is excellent and very well regarded by other Clubs.
The Professional Coaches give regular feedback to the Junior Organiser, advising when a junior is of sufficient ability to progress to the High Course, and the Organiser then arranges Handicapping sessions.
The Junior Organiser for 2022 is Ray Sherwood who is only too pleased to answer any queries.
