Juniors Golf Lessons

There will be 40 minute lessons most Saturdays between now and the end of October with PGA professional Noel Leahy.

There will be two sessions of 40 mins each Saturday.

Max 5 children per session.

Each day we will cover an important aspect of the game.

You will be texted each week in advance to let you know what’s being covered on that coming Saturday.

We hope to cover all aspects at least twice over the course of the golfing season. So don’t worry if they miss one, it will be covered again.

We are starting tomorrow 5th July with address , posture and set up position.

Each session only €5.

Session 1 -3-00

Session 2 – 3-50

Please text or call back to confirm a spot or if you need more info.

This is going to be a key element in your child learning the game and getting the most out of their time with us, and I would hope they do all 5 of the lessons over the coming months.

Del Todd is the man in charge and he can be contacted on 083-1521254

Update July 17th.  The photo below is taken from one of our recent Saturday evening 5 hole competitions. These have been very well attended.
Each Saturday evening we have a 5 hole competition for the younger juveniles and an 11 hole competition for the older more experienced Juniors.
These kick off at 4-45 each Saturday and will run up until the end of October. The times will vary as evenings get shorter.
Each Monday morning during July & August for the more experienced juniors we have an 18 hole competition that checks in @9-15.
Those lessons that are up and running have had 2 extra slots put on each week because of high demand. They are 2-15 & 3-05.  Del Todd.
