Junior Golf Passport

The Fun way to Learn Golf

The Junior Golf Passport is the national structured learning programme for children aged 6-10 years, endorsed by the PGA.

The multi-layered programme progresses a complete novice golfer into a junior golfer ready for membership at a golf club.Through this course, students have the opportunity to push their skills, techniques and confidence to a new level in a fun, dynamic way. 

The programme is presented as both a physical and web based resource using both formats to track performance and progression. The programme is delivered in 6-week blocks covering a subject each week with a festival in week 6 to allow the child to play competition-based games in a fun environment.

Friendly Get Togethers

Unlike many golf programs, our commitment to junior development doesn’t stop at the practice tee or driving range. We want our juniors on the course and playing, so we arrange friendly get togethers where juniors can meet at a set time and play some holes on our course under the supervision of one of our PGA Professional, Sean Morrison and our volunteers.

Summer Competitions

During the summer months we hold various competitions on our 18 hole course. There is a variety of formats including, singles, pairs, teams and flag golf, all designed to allow our juniors to test themselves while still retaining the fun factor.

Junior Golf Clubs

A perfect swings begin with a perfect fit.

When a young player uses clubs that are fit based on their height and skill level, they will learn to swing naturally, while increasing their swing speed and developing good habits.

U.S. Kids Golf offers three systems of lighter weight equipment designed to fit every young player, regardless of age. To learn more about the Ultralight Series clubs and correct fitting click here.
