CALLING youngsters who are keen to learn to play golf and have fun at the same time – Brocket Hall is staging junior golf camps at its Palmerston Golf Academy.

A spokeswoman said: “Junior golf camps are a great way of developing a young player’s all round ability from co-ordination games, involving balance and speed to learning the specific skills required for the golf course.”

The coaching courses are run by PGA professionals and divided into two groups:

Birdies – under-sevens

‘It’s all about the fundamentals!’ Here, children will gain a better awareness of striking, agility, balance, co-ordination and speed necessary for golf. They will be introduced to the game and discover the basis of the swing and short game while having lots of fun at the same time.

Dates: August 20, 21 and 22, 10am to noon each day. £50 for three days or £20 per session.

Eagles – under-14s

The Eagles will gain a better understanding of playing, the short game and the swing. They will continue to improve their athletic ability and spend time discovering new skills in many areas of the game. There will be games and challenging experiences to overcome.

Dates: Monday, August 13, to Friday, August 17 and Monday, August 27 to Friday, August 31, 9.30am to 3.30pm each day. £175 for the week or £55 a day.

The spokeswoman said: “Children will finish the course having made new friends, new skills and an enthusiasm to continue playing the game.”
