Sinton’s Golf Academy 2017- Morpeth Golf Club
Once again Sintons Junior Golf Academy goes from strength to strength with approximately 40 juniors re-joining for the new season, with a waiting list of 12 juniors which we hope to reduce by creating an extra group from 7-8pm. The Academy runs each Thursday evening from May – October where there are 2 sessions, 6-7pm and 7-8pm. We also continue the coaching throughout the winter, meeting once a month at N1 Gubeon or at Morpeth Golf Club for tri-golf sessions. This ensures that we keep in contact with the juniors and their parents. The coaching consists of 5 groups from 6-7pm, covering all aspects of the game:- putting, chipping, long game, academy holes (Par 3’s) and on the course (for course management an rules). From 7-8pm we have the older and more experienced players. They cover all aspects of the game and spend time on the course learning about competitive golf with one of the Club’s Professionals. We are very lucky to have so many volunteers to help with the Academy – including 7 PGA Level 1 coaches!

Junior Development Programme
Bedlingtonshire Golf Club have the interests of young Golfers at heart. The club have built a platform for Golfers as young as 4, to come along and learn how to enjoy the game. Bedlingtonshire set up their Junior Development Club in June 2015, which is free of charge, to create a safe environment where children can learn how to play Golf, but more importantly provide support to ensure a long lasting love for the game. To back this up Bedlingtonshire have included free coaching sessions within their reduced Junior Membership fees and built a team of support staff dedicated to the Junior Section. The goal really is to make sure the youngsters have fun playing the sport in a first class environment.
