Bramshaw Junior Academy
The Management, Professionals and Committees at Bramshaw Golf Club are determined to ensure that our young golfers can enjoy a wide range of benefits, whilst playing golf in a supportive and friendly environment. We recognise that golf provides young people with many life skills and that they represent the future of the great game of golf that we all love. In this respect we want to ensure that we give young boys and girls the best possible start to their golfing lives. We believe the following package does just that.
We acknowledge that quality coaching for the young golfer is essential and that we must be mindful of the Safety and Welfare of young children who entrust themselves into the care of our Professionals and Junior Organisers. In this respect all coaches are qualified PGA professionals, have the appropriate insurance and, along with the Junior Organisers, are all DBS vetted (previously referred to as CRB checked).
