We are currently enjoying a welcome resurgence in Junior golf at our Club and, in an endeavour to maintain momentum, we are seeking sponsors who are willing to help by providing funding for coaching and associated equipment.
Creating and maintaining an active and vibrant Junior Section is fraught with difficulties and the ongoing support from parents, organisers and financial support from the Club and our members is a vital necessity.
We are greatly indebted to one of our members, Neil Sedgwick, who since 2014 has instigated a programme to link local schools with our Club. Neil has also been assisted on this journey by members Mike Barker and John Barker.
These members and the newly formed Junior Management Team recently advertised coaching for all levels of juniors at the Club and, as I write, we have 25 children, boys and girls, who regularly and enthusiastically attend weekly coaching sessions and junior meetings.
I recently had the pleasure of attending the initial junior presentation evening which was arranged to recognise the children’s achievements to date. It was truly heart-warming to see the room buzzing with enthusiastic youngsters and their parents and one could not help but be excited for the future of junior golf at our Club which is being created by the vision and dedication of the organisers.
The Club is supporting this new venture but additional sponsorship support would enable the organisers to achieve their ultimate goal: one that encourages local children into sport, and in particular, into our game of golf and possibly the long-term future of our Club.
Should you feel able to support this venture in any way, please contact me on 07779 016007 or our Secretary/Manager on 01246 279256 Ext 1.
