Junior Passport celebrates first year success

THE GOLF FOUNDATION’S revamped Junior Golf passport celebrated its first birthday in style after welcoming 4,000 boys and girls into club coaching over the past 12 months.

Designed by coaches for coaches, the Junior Golf Passport is the official learning programme for the England Golf Partnership and Golf Development Wales, and has linked thousands of youngsters with PGA professionals allowing them to start learning the game at a golf club.

The initiative is a key part of the Golf Foundation’s national ‘HSBC Golf Roots’ programme which encourages children from all backgrounds in schools and communities to get into golf.

Project leader Sarah Tennyson, marketing manager for the Golf Foundation, said: “Feedback is showing us that youngsters are really enjoying the Junior Golf Passport and the fact that plenty of families are taking an interest is also great news.

“More family involvement at club level is leading to greater spending at the club venue, and that’s fantastic news for clubs everywhere.”
