Leeds Golf Centre grabs YMG Junior Golf Academy status
July 28, 2011

Youngsters keen to try their hand at golf can now look forward to the very best introduction to the game as Leeds Golf Centre has become a YMG Junior Golf Academy.

YMG is the first-ever structured educational syllabus designed to not only introduce boys and girls to the game of golf, but also help them develop the skills and knowledge of the game that will keep them interested and motivated long enough for the golf bug to bite.

Leeds Golf Centre is delighted to become one of around only 300 clubs nationwide to be accredited with YMG Junior Golf Academy status, as Head PGA Professional and Academy Manager, Andy Herridge explains:
"We’re all very excited to have become a YMG Academy because it means we can now offer children the fabulous YMG programme, which, alongside coaching youngsters in how to play the game, also teaches the rules and etiquette through exciting activities, fun challenges and mini-competitions to ensure that the whole golfing experience is about having fun.

Youngsters joining a YMG Academy receive a comprehensive manual, which puts as much emphasis on the rules and etiquette as it does on playing the game, and there are five levels to work through, each comprising an 8-week course of one-hour lessons.

The extremely attractive and carefully assembled manual enables youngsters to see what's in store, week-by-week for each of the 9 levels (Cadets, Cadets 2, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Master 1-4) and each level is marked by a series of fun skills and knowledge challenges which the children complete to move on the next level.

"We will be starting our first YMG Cadets course - the first stage of the YMG programme - in September and we already have quite a few youngsters interested in joining the classes, but we’ll always make room for more," says Andy. We will also be holding free taster sessions every month to give everyone the opportunity to experience golf first hand.

The cost is just £80 per term (8 weeks). If you would like to register interest in a YMG Cadets course at Leeds Golf Centre, call the PGA Professional team on 0113 288 6000, or call in at Leeds Golf Centre, which is located at Shadwell, Leeds, just off the A59 between Leeds and Harrogate.
