Cherry Lodge has an ever-growing Junior Section and new members are always welcome.
The Junior Academy meets on a Sunday and the children are split into three groups. The first two groups are the beginners and the emphasis is on having fun. The children play a range of games all under the supervision of one the club pros - they use either the driving range or the putting green. The final group are the Juniors that are ready to go and play out on the course and most of the children in this group have their handicap. The sessions for this group take place on the driving range or out on the course where they learn course management.
The club pros also organise summer camps for the children where they offer full days coaching and these have proved to be very popular.
During the summer months, there is a monthly competition for those that have a handicap and during the school holidays, there are competitions as well. The club also takes part in the Golf Sixes competition and this involves the children who don’t have a handicap as well as those that do. The club has links with Kent Golf and a number of the girls attend county coaching sessions as well as taking part in county competitions.
The Juniors are well supported by all sections of the club and once they reach the required standard are encouraged to enter club competitions.
Whatever your standard from beginner to holding a handicap you will be given a warm welcome at Cherry Lodge Golf club.
