Junior Convenor


Junior Section

We have a growing junior section with a tradition of providing a friendly, relaxed and welcoming environment for girls and boys to learn and play golf. Our aim is that juniors enjoy their golf, but most of all enjoy being a part of Cupar Golf Club.  The aim of the junior section is to provide a fun environment to experience golf, to give juniors the opportunity to progress to their potential and to equip them with golf skills that can be used and enjoyed for the rest of their lives.

We recognise the importance of juniors in the continuous lifecycle of the club.  We therefore place a great deal of importance in the structure, development and the organisation of the junior section. The junior section is led by the junior convenor with support from parents and committee members.

New members

We welcome juniors of all abilities; from absolute beginners to more accomplished players. As part of the membership, juniors receive structured lessons from a PGA professional.  New members are welcomed throughout the year.

Membership is £50 for under 16s and £60 for 16 and 17 year olds; age qualification is taken as at 1 January and the membership includes the junior package comprising of lessons and organised outings.

Lessons

In 2020, Jordan Brown, PGA Professional at Drumoig Golf Centre will conduct the lessons for members of our junior section.  As part of the junior membership each junior receives 5 lessons at Drumoig, with the first block of lessons starting on Tuesday 25 August 2020.

Outings

The following outings have been arranged for 2020:

Wellsgreen golf centre - Sunday 16 August

Balgove, St Andrews – Sunday 20 September

Himalayas putting, St Andrews – date TBC

Competitions

Competitions take place on various Sunday afternoons throughout the summer season as well as some Friday nights.  These comprise of 4 holes for new and younger players before progression to the 9 hole beginner or 9 hole advanced format.  We arrange handicaps so young players can measure their improvement and everyone has a chance of picking up a prize.  On occasions, different golf formats such as team or pairs golf will take place to allow junior to expand their golf experience.

Adults are encouraged to accompany young children to help them on their way round.  Those adults with golfing knowledge are encouraged to advise about golf etiquette and rules information to our junior members.

GolfSixes

GolfSixes is an exciting initiative introduced in 2019 by Scottish Golf to allow young players without handicaps or a handicap of more than 36 to participate in “friendly” inter club matches. The junior section competes in the East Fife GolfSixes league for 2020 against junior teams from Anstruther Golf Club, Crail Golfing Society, Lundin Ladies Golf Club and The New Golf Club, St Andrews.

All Interclub GolfSixes league fixtures have cancelled until further notice as per Scottish Golf guidelines.
