Here at Ruddington Grange, we are actively promoting junior golf with two junior golf academies, Junior members coaching night, and a fixture sheet full of competitions including matches and the Junior away day. There are numerous junior competitions throughout the season for those with and those without handicaps along with organised social junior golf where you can build long lasting friendships.
With over 40 juniors currently at the golf club, we are a healthy and growing section. We welcome new juniors with open arms and make sure they feel comfortable and part of the section. We have 30 juniors with active handicaps which is a fantastic achievement and with the help of Martin, Callum and parents they are progressing well and reducing their handicaps.
Ruddington Grange currently has Nottinghamshire County players actively in their structures. The club won their respective division last year and came runners up in the tri-series final. We are very proud of this as this is a product of our development at the club. Our junior girls are also growing in numbers, with two girls playing in competitions in Nottinghamshire and Midlands in different junior golf tours.

The Saturday Junior academy is run by PGA professional Callum Fern. Callum runs two sessions, the first session is 10-11am for ages 4-10, and the second session is 11:30am - 12:30 pm which is for ages 11-18. These are 8-week courses for £50 which also works alongside the YMG golf program. The overall goal from Callum is for the children to start with these programs and when Callum and the junior are happy with the progression on course play would be the next step. The final goal would be to get a junior membership to the golf club and obtain a CONGU handicap. For more information on this please call the professional shop on 01159211951.
