Great Torrington Golf Club's junior section is organised by Mark Beer and Rob Ware. We are supported by the England Golf Foundation and we are recognised as a Golf Teaching Academy. We were awarded Junior Club of the Year 2022 by the Golf Foundation. Click the link to read the story on the Golf Foundation’s website.
We meet every Tuesday evening for practice (Sunday lunchtimes during winter months) with professional tuition from Ross Daniel assistant professional at Royal North Devon Golf Club. We are now recognised as a Golf Access Centre.
We have a full set of Tri Golf kit and of course plenty of golf equipment available for juniors setting out on their golfing journey. Each new junior member is provided with a Logo club jumper and hat at no cost.
All the coaching staff are DBS approved through England Golf and have the relevant documentation. We also have a trained Welfare Officer in place with her contact details and picture displayed on the notice board. We also have completed our safeguarding policy in accordance with England Golf best practice and statutory requirements providing us with full Golf Mark status.
The coaching team are all dedicated golfers who take great pride in our junior achievements. We have local schools that visit regularly us for golf coaching as part of their sports curriculum.
