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 eyes of our PGA Professionals, Mark Lawrie and Tom Muchmore, 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, Mark Lawrie and his assistants are 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. Mark already runs regular Sunday Junior Group Lessons.
Throughout the year there are competitions on the 2nd 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!
