Along with the GUI, ILGU we have put together a Club Handbook for Junior Golf which aims to help clubs run sustainable junior sections.
The Club Handbook for Junior Golf has a number of documents in the appendices that Golf Clubs can edit and may unique to their club.
The ‘Club Handbook for Junior Golf’ offers Golf Clubs access to a range of content and practical advice on achieving a ‘best in class’ Junior Golf offering across a variety of areas including:
- Junior Club Operations (coaching, competitions, handicaps, communication)
- Junior Club Committee and Leaders
- Safeguarding Children in Golf
- Girls in Junior Golf
The guide also offers access to a variety of templates and checklists to assist in the implementation of Junior Club programmes, such as recruitment forms, role descriptions, permission forms and safety checklists. A number of real-life case studies are also included which provide excellent learnings and ‘best practice’ examples, including Balbriggan Golf Club who initiated a Cadet’s Section, Enniscrone Golf Club which developed a Junior Club Programme and an insight into how Naas Golf Club worked to increase participation among young female players.
