Birstall Golf Club Launches Major Junior Golf Initiative

Birstall Golf Club has a proud tradition over many years of developing junior golf, as witnessed by a number of the team who won the 2018 Leicestershire and Rutland league having come through the Club’s ranks. To further develop the junior game in the local area the Club is launching a major initiative to attract the next generation to the game of golf.
On Saturday 20th April the Club will be launching an exciting new golf programme for juniors at Birstall. One of the Club’s PGA professionals, Jon Williamson will be starting the first of two six weeks sessions aimed at children between the ages of 10 and 16 keen to take up or resume playing golf. The main features of the new programme are as follows –
* The sessions will be free of charge.
* The Club has removed the junior subscription for 2019.
* Each session will last for one hour commencing at 2.30pm.
* Assuming the Club’s dining room is available there will be free coffee and biscuits for adults accompanying the juniors.
* For those juniors seeking additional coaching after the initial programme Jon will be offering a special package.
Commenting on this new development Williamson said “Children today have a choice of many activities but few are as attractive as golf. When it comes to teaching children how to combine enjoyment with good behaviour – golf by definition is character building as well as enjoyable and children attending coaching lessons at Birstall can be assured of not only top class teaching but also a friendly and secure environment. Our aim is to build upon the Club’s proud traditions and get local children into our wonderful game in the knowledge Birstall will have an appropriate offering for them regardless of standard”.
The Club is also looking at the development of a summer holiday course of activities for younger children and combining with local schools to make golf readily available to anyone interested in taking up or resuming playing golf.
