Alford, Inchmarlo and Westhill Golf Clubs are taking part in a national junior golf programme this summer by running ClubGolf Camps.

“The ClubGolf Camps will be a fantastic opportunity for our clubs to build on their successful ClubGolf programmes,” said ClubGolf Manager, Jackie Davidson.

“In particular getting more children playing golf, encouraging more active junior members and creating a large pool of well coached youngsters from which more talented players will emerge.

“We are hugely encouraged to see that so many clubs and facilities in Scotland have embraced this new opportunity as another way of building on their successful junior programmes and we wish all involved in this first year of ClubGolf Camps success.”

The ClubGolf Camps will be a week-long holiday programme (July 2-6) at 50 clubs and facilities running ClubGolf programmes, which will encourage more children aged between 9 -13 years old to take up golf and develop their skills.

Running over consecutive days ClubGolf Camps will provide children with up to 20 hours of coaching at £25 for the week, helping them improve their skills and giving them the chance to experience what it’s like to be part of a golf club. ClubGolf is targeting PGA Pro’s to lead on delivery at ClubGolf Camps, supported by volunteer coaches.

For its inaugural year ClubGolf aims to have 50 camps running across Scotland, engaging some 900 youngsters.
