Free golf lessons and membership for kids at Leaderboard courses
February 10, 2011

UK golf course owner Leaderboard Golf is inviting aspiring junior golfers between the ages of 8 and 18 to enjoy complimentary membership and professional golf training at any of the Leaderboard courses (which are based across the South of England), starting from February 2011. The group hopes the initiative will encourage a greater number of British youngsters to take up the game in advance of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, when Golf will become an Olympic sport (for the first time since 1904).

A key part of this unique offering will be group lessons held by PGA professional trainers at the following Leaderboard courses: Chart Hills in Kent, Dale Hill in East Sussex, Sandford Springs in Hampshire, and The Oxfordshire in Thame. Leaderboard aims to ensure that through these sessions all of their new junior members will receive the encouragement and training necessary to enable them to make the most of their time on the course, with the possibility that some of them may go on to become core members of the junior teams.

Interested parties who would like to enquire about the programme on behalf of their children or grandchildren should contact their local club using the details below:

Sandford Springs Ben Curtis

The Oxfordshire Stuart Perry

Terms and Conditions

A limited number of Complimentary Junior Memberships are available to children between the ages of 8 and 18 (inclusive) on the date of enrolment, subject to assessment by a Leaderboard coach and interview with the Director of Golf.

Every junior member will be given the opportunity to take part in free lessons and must attend at least three of these per year.
