Junior Coaching

Coaching Programme

There are coaching opportunities for all abilities.  Our aim is to:

  • Promote and encourage play at all levels.
  • Identify and nurture talent.
  • Develop our elite golfers and select teams to represent the county.

We have an extensive Coaching Programme and progression plan which invests in improving the standard of golf for players of all ages and skills levels.  Coaching takes place throughout the year and at various locations around the County.

We run a comprehensive range of sessions with our county coaches, including new for this year, a Junior Academy with James Verrall at Haywards Heath GC – weekend coaching sessions each month for beginners aged 7-15 for just £5 per session. Click here for further information.


2020 Junior Coaching Programme

Summer coaching is at Haywards Heath with Belinda Whent.

These are 2-hour sessions once a month from March through to October, costing just £5 per session. They will be held on Sunday afternoons from 1pm – 3pm and details of these will be released soon.

The Winter Junior Coaching sessions are run by Lee Andrews at Mid-Sussex GC.  He welcomes all abilities, from beginners without an official handicap to those juniors with a handicap.   The dates for the next 2 sessions are 7th and 28th March 2020.

Elite Girls

Our Winter Training takes place with Ryan Fenwick from West Hove and the schedule has been sent to the Elite Squad.

After this year’s success at the JCMW and the South Region Girls’ Championships it is important that we build on those achievements to gain further honours.  There are a number of girls who have now been promoted to the Elite Squad by reducing their handicaps and they will be invited, along with the established members, to improve their skills and game management at these sessions.

Development Squad

We’re also looking for ‘improving’ juniors to join the Sussex Golf Junior Academy.  If you, or anyone you know, is a junior golfer looking to progress and develop their skills, play and learn more about golf as well as meet other girls to have fun playing, the Junior Academy is just the place. The Academy will run alongside any coaching that is already taking place, and is designed to complement their training.

If you have any questions, please email Christine Knight or call 01403 262194.


The SCLGA runs beginners training programmes at Mid-Sussex and Haywards Heath Golf Clubs.  These sessions will offer the girls fun activities, shot technique and application as well as experience on the golf course. They are designed to work in conjunction with other club training schemes and give the girls an opportunity to play with other like-minded girls.  Details of the training programmes will be available later this Spring.
