At Kenwick Park we firmly believe that junior golf is a vital component of a successful golf club. This is why we invest our time heavily to ensure any junior receives the very best in coaching and support. The club achieved the Golfmark Award in 2010 which means we have been recognised as a 'junior friendly' club with the necessary facilities in place to ensure the safety of all children that we coach and the opportunity to offer youngsters everything they need to get the maximum enjoyment from the game of golf.
Despite the golf club being only 20 years old we have a rich history of developing junior golfers. This started when Eric Sharp was the Head Professional. Eric has coached players to various European Tour successes and a Ryder Cup team member. Paul Spence has been tasked with taking up the mantle left by Eric Sharp and he is making a fine job of it. With Ashton Turner (Ranked #1 Under 18 golfer in Europe, July 2013) and Jessica Schiele who is competiting with distinction on the US Collegiate scene to name just a few.
Paul is also coaching our next crop of budding junior golfers with the help of Michael Langford and Assistant Golf Professional George Chubb. We are not necessarily looking for the next Tiger Woods but what we take great pride in is bringing youngsters into the game that want to play golf, enjoy golf and uphold the traditions of the game. Golf is not only a great game for fitness, achieving personal goals and building friendships but it also gives youngsters a great start in life and the opportunity to mix with others from many different backgrounds.
A Junior membership at Kenwick Park comes with many additional benefits. We organise Junior Golf Clinics in the school holidays and coaching every other Saturday afternoon for our junior members at no extra cost. We have a Junior Team that competes in the local Lincolnshire League and juniors who achieve a handicap of 28 for boys, 36 for girls or better are eligible to play in the Mens and Ladies competitions. We also a run a Junior 'Handicap scheme' to offer younger golfers a handicap between 29-54 to aid their development and goal setting.
Help and advice is never far away, if you would like any more information about Junior Membership please contact Michael Langford on 01507 605134.
