Junior Golf

At The Wiltshire we recognise the need for the successful development of junior golfers from coaching through to full adult membership. 

Junior coaching is provided by our resident professional, Marc McCracken who holds training sessions most weekends. These sessions are designed to introduce our juniors to all aspects of golf and appreciate the many benefits that playing the game can bring. The emphasis throughout for our juniors will be on enjoying the game of golf in a safe and secure environment, developing existing skills and promote course management and golf etiquette.

Before you go out on the course, you will need to show that you understand the basic rules of golf and course etiquette; assessment will be undertaken by the club professional.

Once you’ve passed your assessment you are free to play on the Garden and/or Lakes Courses depending on your membership.

Represent the Club
We aim to establish a Junior Team to contest with other clubs through the County League or local arrangements. This is in addition to Junior Club Competitions, or individual entries to other Junior Open competitions.

It is our hope that we can develop some young players to represent the County and we are building relationships with the Wiltshire County Committee to assist in this matter.
