Five Lakes juniors is a thriving section with boys and girls of ages from 9 to 18. The section, led by captain Tom Vass, meets every Saturday to play in both fun and serious golf competitions. The junior section has a full published tournament calendar with dedicated tee times on either the championship Lakes course or the challenging Links course. The tournament calendar also caters for school holiday periods.
The junior section has its own trophy cabinet, honours boards, and notice board. Juniors are kept informed via a dedicated Facebook page and regular e-mail updates.
Junior handicaps start at 54 for complete novices with more experienced juniors attaining single figure handicaps. Junior competitions and handicaps are maintained by the Club’s IntelligentGolf system which provides integrated competition management and CONGU handicapping.
Five Lakes juniors regularly compete in County competitions and other friendly events outside of the Club.
Professional coaching for juniors of all ages is available from the Club’s teaching staff. Juniors also have full access to the driving range, practice pitching and putting areas as well as the practice sand bunker.
The junior section offers a very welcoming, friendly and safe environment for boys and girls to develop their golfing and social skills under the guidance of DBS certified Junior Organisers and the umbrella of England Golf’s GolfMark award scheme.
The Club offers a number of junior membership options depending on age. If you would like your boy or girl to join our merry band, please refer to the Contacts tab on the Home page.
