Juniors

IMG_0893megan

People join a sports club for many reasons, to play sport with friends or make new ones, to get better at the sport. At the Bishopbriggs Golf Club we take seriously the development of junior members and hope that this will add to their enjoyment of the game.

There are many benefits from being a member of a golf club, the ability to obtain a handicap that will allow you to play courses across the world as well as the open championship courses. Should you wish to play competitively there are team matches for all levels of ability.

We have invested heavily and in conjunction with the Scottish Golf Ltd we have created a dedicated course for the juniors – the Academy Course for young golfers as well as a practice area with covered bays and practice greens for all golfers.

Boys & Girls Memberships are available, and we are a Scottish Golf 'Children and Young Adults Safe Golf' Accredited Club. Our weekly 'Learn to Golf' evening golf lessons commence 19th April with the focus on having fun, learning, developing skills and on-course play. Using activities and games developed by PGA coaches and experts, with a flexible approach to suit the needs of our junior members and the Club’s junior coaching plans. We provide fun competitions for boys & girls from Primary 5 to 3rd year High School.
