Since Royal North Devon Golf Club became an official Golf access centre back in April this year we have seen a very positive increase in junior golfers wanting to head out on the links and start to work towards an official golfing handicap.
What is Golf Access?
Golf Access is an exciting new format designed to help golf clubs encourage new participants to play golf for the first time, with the opportunity to learn the game on the golf course, rather than solely on the driving range or practice ground.
There are 9 different bands / levels for golfers to work through in Golf Access and a participant can progress to the next level as soon as they attain the band score or better. The participant can only move one level at a time after posting a score. All participants will start with the maroon coloured band and work towards achieving platinum level.
When each level has been obtained, junior participants are presented with a coloured wrist band and certificate as recognition of achieving the corresponding level.
We have already had two Juniors Harvey Beal and William Newby who have achieved their platinum bands with 14 other children working their way through the programme.
The Future of junior golf is very promising here at the golf club and programmes like golf access really help junior golfers have the structure to continue improve.
We are in the process now of organising more and more events for the 2019 season. The future is looking bright lets keep it going!
