Ashford Golf Club Junior Section is an evolving section. It caters for all ages and currently numbers over 40 golfers.
We have recently introduced forward junior (blue) tees giving the younger ones a chance to score well and get their confidence on our tricky course. As the juniors handicaps improve under the watchful eye of our PGA Professional Chris Wood, they will move back to the red tees and then the yellows, and finally to compete with the full club members off the white championship tees.
Our PGA Head Professional, Chris Wood is very supportive of the Juniors and oversee all their activities; always ready to offer help and advice to new members.
When there is a group, we have a rules morning. With the increasing membership it is hoped to introduce “golf camps” during the school holidays. Chris already runs regular Saturday Junior Group Lessons.
Throughout the year there are competitions on a Saturday of each month for the juniors. Additionally there is an annual fixture against the ladies, which is great fun; and a number of Texas Scrambles where the Junior is in a team with a lady, a veteran, and a full member. All great fun, which is what golf is all about!
