In 2014 Heworth Golf Club launched a new Junior Coaching Programme in an effort to grow the Junior Section and to create a fun learning environment for all involved. To support this the Club agreed to offer free membership for any child of Primary School age.
The Academy programme is growing from strength to strength with the Sunday morning coaching attracting over 20 golfers over the summer.
A number of local Primary schools have introduced golf to some of their younger pupils by starting golf sessions as part of PE. This coaching has been a great success and allows around 30 pupils in each school to enjoy golf as part of their school day. This coaching is provided during the school day in the school hall and has proved to be very popular with the children and the teachers and is great fun.
In 2017 the club has great plans to continue growing the game and developing the Junior Section and the Coaching Programme. The club is looking to introduce golf to at least one or two more primary schools and maybe introduce golf to a secondary school in the area.
The club are also looking to grow the coaching academy at the club. This year the aim is to expand with evening sessions in addition to the Sunday programme, and coaching camps throughout the school holiday periods - Easter holidays, Summer half term break and throughout the 6 weeks holiday.
Longer term the academy will provide a seamless development pathway for the young golfers at the club which will include support and advice for players and parents to ensure all have fun and provide support for all
