Whalsay Golf Club Juniors
In 2009 the club, along with Shetland Golf Club, joined forces with Club Golf Scotland to get more juniors into the game. Whalsay now have 12 members trained as PGA Level 1 Coaches and are currently running indoor junior coaching sessions at the local leisure centre and at the Whaslay Golf Club.
Juniors Coaching and Competition Information 2013
Primary coaching sessions at the Leisure Centre got under way on Monday 15th April and will continue on Mondays for 4 weeks (3.30pm - 5pm). Graeme has agreed to take any secondary juniors to Skaw if it’s a fine night (from 4pm). All are welcome to come and try the coaching sessions, but to play in the golf club competitions you must be a member of the club. The junior membership is £20. This entitles you to play on the golf course in 2013 and play in all the clubs competitions, shown on the “2013 Junior Golf Coaching & Competitions Dates (attachment below). Watch the school notice boards and Facebook page for any cancellations due to weather, or phone if unsure.
Primary age golfers playing in medal competitions must have an adult or coach walking around with them to help count scores. A list of qualified coaches’ and their phone numbers are below. Secondary age golfers can play anytime but must play with another golfer or be accompanied by an adult to keep their score.
