Juniors On The Golf Course

It’s not long before we will see all of our junior students achieve handicaps. For the vast majority of our junior students 2013 was their “Introduction to Golf” year. This cognitive phase of learning
the game entailed the learning of the basics to a mental understanding of the game. The latter parts of 2013 saw a few of the juniors playing their fi rat full 9 holes and even 18 holes during the December Holidays.

In 2014 they are playing weekly on course games in addition to weekly coaching sessions. In our next RAGA Bulletin let’s hope we can report back on our new “handicapped” juniors.
