Welcome to the Junior section of New Mills Golf Club. We encourage girls and boys of all ages to take up this wonderful sport. If your child has had the opportunity to play ‘Tri Golf’ at school and fancies a go at the ‘real thing’ please contact us and fix up a lesson.
Golf used to be seen as an expensive rather exclusive sport but with free membership for children under the age of 11 and £90 for a full year’s membership for youngsters between the age of 12 and 17 it’s a great game to play, especially in the school holidays and can work out as a very cost effective sport.
Our club professional, Sam Shaw, began his golf here as a Junior before eventually becoming a fully qualified PGA professional and moving back to New Mills a couple of years ago. Sam provides coaching both for individuals or small groups so please don’t hesitate to contact him.
We have, over recent years, had many of our younger players represent us in Derbyshire competitions and we are once again very proud to be one of the clubs to host one of the fixtures in this year’s Derbyshire Futures Tour. Many ex Juniors are now regular winners in our adult Saturday competitions!
This year’s Junior Captain is Cara Wild. Cara has been a regular player over the last few years. She is a keen competitor, who is a fantastic role model for girls and boys alike. A first choice pick for any Texas Scramble team and having played throughout the winter she is a proven dedicated player. Cara will be hosting her very own Junior Captain’s Day in September which we are sure will be a great success. We wish her, and all the Juniors, every success in 2018 and look forward to meeting new players.
