Golf for Juniors
The Club Junior Offer is a pilot programme being delivered in 2014/15 which aims to support 130 HSBC Golf centres to retain junior golfers, increase junior membership and to develop a stronger junior section.
Junior Handicapping Scheme
Through the CONGU scheme, golf clubs can assign junior handicaps up to 54, making it easier for juniors to obtain their first handicap and allowing competition between players from an early stage. View information on the CONGU Junior Handicapping Scheme at http://www.congu.com/Junior
