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 and was awarded "High Acheiver" having met high standards in Coaching & Playing, Club Administration (including sports equity & ethics), and Child Protection & Duty of Care. Kenwick Park has 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 29 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.
Paul is also coaching our next crop of budding junior golfers with the help of his coaching team. 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.

Our Junior Organiser
Our greatest asset in recruiting new Junior Golfers is perhaps our Junior Organiser Nik Fox.
He is also a Level 2 Golf Coach. As Junior Organiser Nik helps to drive and deliver our Junior Golf Beginners Programme at the club which is a vital part of the recruitment into our Junior Section.
His infectuous enthusiasm for teaching golf to any youngster willing to give it a go is visible for all to see.
Meet our Junior Captain
Zander Charlesworth has been a member of Kenwick Park since 2017, during his time at the club he has won a number of junior competitions including the Junior Championship in 2020.
Hear more from Zander below about his love from the game of golf:-
- My greatest achievements in golf are winning the Jennings and Peggotty Trophy on the Lincolnshire county circuit and being part of the Lincolnshire county team when we won the U16 County Cup last year.
- My favourite hole at Kenwick Park is the 13th. This is because I have a good memory of chipping in for an eagle from the edge of the green in the 2022 Junior Championship. Also I enjoy the risk and reward factor of going for the green in two if I get my drive in a good position.
- My favourite course that I have played is the King Robert the Bruce course at Trump Turnberry in Ayrshire, Scotland.
- My favourite golfer is Justin Thomas because I admire his wedge control and iron play.
- As well as golf I also have an interest in aviation. I am currently taking flying lessons to work towards getting a Private Pilots License.
- My hopes for my Junior Captains year is to share my golf knowledge with all members of the junior section. I also hope to lead the Kenwick Park Junior Team to a successful season. As well as this I am looking forward to working with Nik and the Junior Committee to continue to grow the extremely strong junior section at Kenwick Park.
Zander is the Captain of the Junior Section. But as we have an ever growing 'Girls section' we are proud to announce Alex Martin as our second Captain of our Junior Girls Section.
