Junior Report October 2020


Elsham Junior Section

The aim of our junior section is to provide juniors with a fun and safe environment to experience golf, to give them the opportunity to progress to their potential and to equip them with golfing skills that can be used and enjoyed for the rest of their lives.

At Elsham Golf Club, we take the safety and welfare of all our Juniors seriously. In November 2019, we achieved the SafeGolf accreditation – being one of the first clubs within England to achieve this. We have 2 Welfare Officers whom have an up-to-date DBS check and hold up-to-date Safeguarding and Protecting Children training (including Time to Listen training). All parents and guardians can be reassured in knowing that we provide safe and fun experiences in golf for young people.

Elsham Golf Academy

The Elsham Golf Academy was established in 2016 and is both a Lincolnshire Partnership Training Centre and Golf Roots Centre. The club was recently given GolfMark status by Golf England, as the Academy looks to grow year by year.

The Professional Team pride themselves on having a holistic approach to coaching, focusing on the technical, mental and physical aspects of the game. Under the umbrella of the Academy coaching takes place on a daily basis to individuals, groups and schools, providing a service to golfers of all levels.

Over the coming years Elsham Golf Club aspires to be one of leading Academies in the region, offering a high level of service with the help of Professionals and the community.

Junior Golf Academy

Working with the Members, Schools and Local Community

The Junior Golf Academy is open to all golfers from those new to the game through to established Junior members.

Elsham Junior Golf Academy works closely with the local Primary and Secondary schools providing term-time coaching in the schools. Pupils are encouraged to attend further coaching classes held at Elsham throughout the year.

Intermediate Junior members have an opportunity to attended funded coaching sessions held throughout the season. These classes are a mixture of new and already established members. We see it as a chance for Juniors to make new friends and feel more comfortable in the golf course environment.

Established Juniors have the opportunity to play in regular competitions and represent the club in matches both home and away. Junior team coaching takes place on a regular basis throughout the year.
