 The Junior Coordinator (JC) is Mick Campbell (Email: mdrcc4@hotmail.com) who deals with the running of all aspects of the section, such as arranging competitions, dealing with handicaps, advise on etiquette and rules, coaching, membership, up and coming events and development pathways. He is supported by a team of volunteers, who work together to promote golf and maintain a thriving Junior section.

 

Amy Lancaster, the Club Safeguarding Officer, is the first point of contact for any issue concerning child welfare.

 

We are currently working on retaining our Gold star GolfMark accreditation, which demonstrates our commitment to training and progressing youngsters. Golf can be a very positive influence for a young person and we are always looking to develop good life skills as well as golfing talent.

 

Important Junior Information

 

Richmond Golf Club Junior Section offers boys and girls up to the age of 18 the opportunity to develop their game in a friendly and supportive environment. We welcome new members of all standards ranging from complete beginners to good players. If you are new to the game, we will help you to improve; if you have a strong game, you will have the opportunity to compete for a place in our successful Junior Team, as well as be put forward for County Coaching and a chance to represent the County Team.

 

Any junior interested in joining Richmond Golf Club is welcome to obtain an application form and parental consent form from Amy Lancaster, who is also our Club Secretary. Once completed and returned, an informal meeting will then be arranged with the JC.

 

Richmond Golf Club has a structured approach to the induction of young people into the sport, both from the points of view of technique and etiquette. The Club sets a high priority on coaching for juniors. Our Professional will assess when a junior is ready to progress onto the main course. We have a group of volunteers happy to provide help for those starting out.

 

To acquire a junior handicap you must complete 18 holes and hand your card to the JC or secretary. Juniors handicaps start from 54 but can start lower depending on ability. Once their handicaps reach a certain level (16 for a boy, 36 for a girl), they may also be allowed to take part in all adult competitions (as long as they also support the junior competitions and gets permission from the captain of the gents or ladies sections).

 

Richmond is a busy club, but juniors do have reserved times for their competitions. Please take advantage and try to enter as many competitions as you can. Remember the handicap system gives everybody both a chance to succeed against better players and the opportunity to show improvement.
