Junior Golf Academy

Willow Valley Golf are working alongside the Golf Foundation to create a modern junior golf development centre to help Juniors learn every aspect of the game of golf in a professional but fun environment.

Each junior has a Junior Golf Passport which covers everything from the basics to completing a full 18 holes. These passports have been linked with a 6 level system designed to help the parents and child monitor their progress and inspire the junior to work hard and reach that next level. On completion of each level the junior will receive a certificate and matching badge.

Level 1 – Badger

Level 2 – Rabbit

Level 3 – Lizard

Level 4 – Snake

Level 5 – Eagle

Level 6 – Tiger
