To all members and parents
In the upcoming year Forres Golf Club are planning to continue initiatives to promote Junior Golf participation for existing members and to attract new members, as explained further below:
Club Golf – A continuation of our successful beginner development programme – coaching will be delivered in 2 blocks during spring and autumn and is suitable for primary 5 ages and up. Coaching will be undertaken on Saturdays and Sundays for 1 hour, between 4 and 6pm. This year it will be starting on the weekend of the 9th/10th May.
Girls Golf Hub – A scheme promoted by Scottish Golf to attract new girl members to golf, with a funded PGA Professional delivering a six-week block of coaching. Participants will also receive a goody bag, a golf club to keep and a membership voucher to use to join the club as part of the programme. This scheme is open to non-members only but does include all school ages.
Golf Sixes – Targeting beginner golfers who have handicaps over 37 or who have yet to obtain their handicap. Starting this summer, boys and girls can represent Forres Golf Club in regional inter-club leagues playing weekly team golf. Wearing coloured team shirts with GolfSixes branding, squads of juniors will play six holes against other clubs in a Texas Scramble format. Our league includes Elgin, Hopeman, Moray and Forres.
Golf Camps and Coaching – Over the school holiday periods it is the intention to run 4-day golfing camps with coaching provided by a combination of professionals and our own volunteers. In addition throughout the season we are hoping to help develop some of our good junior golfers into great junior golfers with master-class sessions and course management knowledge. We would be grateful if you could spread the word to friends and family and indeed anyone else you think may be interested. All of the information is also available on the club website under the new Junior section.
We also host a number of Junior fixtures throughout the year. Our junior fixtures can all be found on the events page of the website.
