Kendal Golf Club has always had an excellent reputation for the strength of its Junior Section and currently has 60 members plus a similar number undertaking regular coaching sessions.
The Junior Section is currently organised by our PGA Professional, Ben Waller ably assisted by his junior committee. 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.
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.
Membership rates for junior golfers are very competitive and 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.
Kendal Junior Teams
The Junior Team is organised by Andrew Wilkinson, we have two teams in the Cumbria Junior League, one in the South West League and one in the South East League. Over recent years the junior team has had great successes.
