On Saturdays PGA Professional Dean Lintott runs a successful Junior Academy that focuses on juniors of all ages and abilities. Dean is also the Junior Club Welfare Officer for Puttenham Golf Club
Our aim is to produce juniors who can successfully complete a round of golf to the best of their ability, whilst abiding by the rules of the game and exhibiting accepted etiquette, but also gaining maximum enjoyment from the game. All lessons are focused around three points: Etiquette, Swing & Skill.
There are five stages to the Academy and we hope the juniors who take this opportunity will complete all stages, and come out a lot wiser with a better understanding of all facets of the game. Non members who take part in the Junior Academy can use the Academy course for free providing they are under adult supervision.
At Puttenham Golf Club, we feel that junior golf is very important. From past experience we have found that it is important the pupils do not feel intimidated, and we recommend working through a set structure. This means that juniors in the same group will all be of a similar standard. Keeping the groups smaller also improves the quality of teaching and safety.
If your son or daughter, or any of their friends, are interested in learning the whole game of golf in a fun-filled but structured environment, please call in to the Pro Shop, call 01483 810277 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to give you more information on the Academy.
Puttenham Golf Club also has a number of Junior membership opportunities – click here for further details.
