Juniors Section

 

Kendal Golf Club has always had an excellent reputation for the strength of its Junior Section.

Over the years it has produced many talented players who have represented the County at the highest level, with many then joining the Professional ranks and forging a career locally as Club Professionals.

The Club was awarded GolfMark certification in 2008, the first club in the area to achieve this status. This accreditation is given to junior and beginner friendly clubs who comply to stringent national standards. Please see seperate page within our website for more information.

The Junior Section is currently organised by our Professional, Ben Waller ably assisted by parents and grandparents.  Ben offers coaching sessions throughout the year to juniors of all ages and experience, you do not need to be a member to participate in these sessions. Please contact the Professional Shop for further details.

All juniors who attend coaching session automatically become Silver Academy Members at no cost. This allows them to use the practice facilities at the club whilst supervised by an adult. Once they have achieved a satisfactory level we offer an upgrade to Gold Membership, this allows play on the course at any time, again supervised by an adult. The cost of Gold Membership is only 20 per annum.

The current Junior Captain is Mike Burrow.

Membership rates for junior golfers are very competitive, see our membership page for upto date information, and at Kendal we offer a comprehensive competition schedule throughout the year.

The fixtures include our popular junior week in the last week of July, which is 5 days of both fun and serious competitions including meals each day and prizegiving on the Friday afternoon.  

The junior team have represented the club with credit and distinction over the past few years, winning the South Cumbria Championship on many occasions and losing in the final of the County Championship to Silloth in 2010.

The Club would like to thank all sponsors who support the Junior section, with special thanks to Salon 16 in Kendal who sponsor the team apparel.
