The six-tier Programme
We have a very successful junior academy programme in place at the golf centre. By far the more popular choice is our junior group clinics that run during term times that offer each junior the chance to participate in a weekly structured golf class. Our golf classes are structured specifically to address varying levels and standards of golfers on our programme at this time. We have a six tier structure in place, allowing us to enrol children as young as 6 years all the way up to late teens. The six tier programme is as follows;
WHITE 6 - 9 YEARS
Learning to Play
RED MALE 9-12 YEARS, FEMALE - 7-11 YEARS
GREEN MALE 9-12 YEARS ,FEMALE - 7-11 YEARS
BLUE MALE 9-12 YEARS, FEMALE - 8-11 YEARS
Training to train
JUNIOR ACADEMY ("SILVER") MALE 12-16 YEARS, FEMALE 11-15 YEARS (Currently Stage 3 Development)
How the Programme works
All new players on our academy are introduced to the very basic skills and knowledge required to play golf. As each junior player progresses through each level of the six tier programme he/she is introduced further to swing technique, competition, rules & etiquette.
When the golfer reaches the adequate age, maturity and skill level he/she will have the opportunity to participate in our Junior medal competitions that take place on our main golf course. It is the culmination of a prolonged period of golf tuition and persistence that will ensure the junior golfer reaches this level of play. Ultimatelty this will lead to the golfers first official handicap.
Our aim at Melville golf centre with our academy is to ensure that all our classes follow a systematic, structured programme that ensures athlete development over a prolonged period of time. Yet in the process, have a lot of fun and enjoyment!!
Our academy has produced many golfers who have gone on to represent club and county level. At present we have players on the Academy level who will be participating in this year’s major junior competitions throughout the country. Melville Golf centre is one of the leading providers of .
