Lewes Golf Club has always encouraged Junior Golfers and the members are great supporters of the Junior section.
Why start playing so young?
Golf gives children the opportunity to meet new people, build new friendships and develop communication and social skills. Golf also teaches etiquette and fair play, great attributes for any young person. Golf is a game where you spend hours outdoors keeping fit and healthy. Most importantly golf is good fun!
Golf is open to everyone, regardless of age, gender, size or ability and is a game that can be enjoyed throughout life. Golf has a unique handicap system which means anybody can play with each other and have a competitive match.
At Lewes we have a very active junior section run by our junior organiser and club professionals who are all passionate about getting people into the game. The facilities are excellent and the course has many quiet times which are great for juniors going out to develop their game in a safe environment. Junior coaching sessions are also available.
The junior membership includes organised sessions every Saturday with further coaching sessions available. Membership also gives you access to the practice facilities (driving range, putting green and a chipping green) and full use of the golf course (excluding Saturday mornings unless accompanied by an adult).
Children and parents also have access to the clubhouse where food and drink are served in a comfortable environment.
We regularly host junior Stableford competitions which juniors can enter for a small fee and which are great for improving their handicaps. When juniors reach a higher standard we recommend they move onto a Junior Plus membership and take advantage of Lewes’ great inclusivity.
Over the course of the year the Junior Committee organise a comprehensive range of events for Juniors of all ages and abilities.
