We aim to provide an environment where juniors can feel comfortable, meet their friends, have fun, develop their golf skills, and foster an enthusiasm and love for the game. In addition to playing skills juniors will learn how to keep score, mark a card, and understand some basic rules and etiquette. All beginners are invited to attend professional coaching sessions and join Golf Access.
Golf Access provides early opportunity to play out on the golf course. It is a fun short course format with a colour coded system that recognises progression and achievement. At each Group Level (9 in total) the distance from tee to the hole and the number of holes played increases. Golf Access events take place throughout the season.

Twenty Four very young golfers from four local clubs; Matlock, Shirland, Chesterfield and South Chesterfield Golf Clubs, compete in teams of six, a fun pairs Texas Scramble over six shortened holes.
A series of eight matches, two at each participating club, take place during the summer. Each competitor is provided with a team sweatshirt.
The GOLFSIXES format is promoted by The Golf Foundation to encourage more young people, supported by their parents, to enjoy the fun and competitive team atmosphere of golf. Family involvement is encouraged. GolfSixes makes a great addition to the club’s offering for young golfers.
Last year our team qualified for the semi finals. Displaying great sportsmanship throughout all the seasons matches and particularly in their last game against Chesterfield Golf Club, the team were a credit to Matlock Golf Club. Pictured are Tom Fennah, Jacob Kenworthy, Jess Aston and Emily Jo Saville.
A full list of Junior competitions can be found in the Club’s Diary Section.
Working with the youngsters is very rewarding and being able to see them progress relatively quickly is refreshing. If you are able to help or want to find out more please contact our Junior Organiser.
