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.
2019 Junior Coaching Programme
Summer coaching has now started and this year is being held in two different centres: at Haywards Heath with Belinda Whent and new this year, at Brighton and Hove with Dan Croucher.
There is a 2-hour session at each venue once a month from March through to October, costing just £5 per session. They will be held on Sunday afternoons on 14th April, 19th May, 16th June, 21st July, 18th August, 15th September and 20th October. The Haywards Heath session is from 1 – 3 pm and the Brighton & Hove session from 2 – 4 pm.
The Winter Junior Coaching sessions will take place with Lee Andrews at Mid-Sussex GC from November. Lee welcomes all abilities, from beginners without an official handicap to those juniors with a handicap.
Our Winter Training takes place with Ryan Fenwick from West Hove and the schedule has been sent to the Elite Squad.
After last summer’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.
The next residential stay at Dale Hill is 15th &16th April 2019 and is by invitation only.

We’re also looking for ‘improving’ juniors to join the Sussex Golf Junior Academy in 2019. 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 during 2019 at Mid-Sussex, Haywards Heath and West Hove GCs. 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. Application Forms are available below:
