Effingham Golf Club – Juniors Section

173The golf Club has built a new entrance and reception area to the Clubhouse which incorporates a new Pro Shop and a Swing Studio with the latest technology. The latter will allow coaching to be available during the evenings and inclement weather.

Members of the Junior Team squad had a nearest the Pin competition one evening after school at the world famous “Postage Stamp” (8th hole) par 3 at Royal Troon where the 145th Open Championship is being played in July. All without leaving the locality!

Effingham Golf Club boasts a thriving Junior Section (up to 18 years) of boys and girls providing a progressive programme from new starter to accomplished player. Why not find out more about playing golf at Effingham in 2016.

If you are either a complete novice or interested in just giving golf a go the club is keen to help you with its junior golf development scheme.

172The club is keen to extend the opportunity of Junior membership to existing young golfers in the local area. Much of the coaching is subsidised by the Club so as to make it affordable to all. As well as regular monthly competitions there are inter- club matches. There is no joining fee for a new Junior Member but there is a modest annual subscription of £100 (under13 yrs) £205 (13-18 yrs).

Some young and aspiring golfers may either not have an official handicap or may not be quite up to the standard needed for immediate Junior Membership with the playing rights its provides. However this is not a problem as these can be addressed by the Junior Organisers in a number of practical ways that meet the individual’s situation.

You can find out more about joining Junior Golf by contacting our PGA Professional:- Robert Daw- email: professional@effinghamgolfclub.com  or telephone 01372 452203 (golf inquiries – pro shop).
