Juniors Golf

Matlock has a thriving junior section with over 40 junior members from 8 – 17. Levels of ability vary. We strive to provide coaching and activities to suit all. Ambitious plans to develop the section are in place.

  • Golf Access

    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.
