Junior Golf Academy in Association with Bitesize Golf

The Staining lodge Junior Academy offers a comprehensive junior golf coaching programme throughout the year, using the Bitesize Junior Coaching Programme.

The Bitesize Golf Academy is a true development pathway for children. Young players, either from the SNAG Academy which we run in schools or new to the game, start the programme that will turn them into competent golfers eventually becoming active junior  members of The Lodge Golf Club.

The Bitesize Golf Academy is a fully structured programme that includes ten progressive levels of attainment. With ten resource books covering ten different topic categories, the Bitesize Golf Academy offers a complete learning experience to boys and girls alike.

Each session, mixes learning golf techniques with challenges, games and quizzes.  Other topics important to learning how to play golf that are included in all the sessions are rules, etiquette, care of the golf course, equipment, fitness, rules, etiquette and many more valuable skills.

Each series and level is completed when the quiz is marked and all challenges completed. The pupil then receives their certificate of achievement with a pass, merit or distinction grading, which means they move up to the next level.

Simple stepping stones is what the Bitesize Golf Academy is all about, whether the child wants to play for fun or on becoming a champion, each child can learn at their own pace and enjoy the experience.. These take place:

  • After school
  • Saturday mornings
  • During school holidays

Juniors receive structured coaching where they periodically attempt different challenges,games and quiz's.

All juniors receive certificates on the completion of different skill levels.

Cost of an junior group coaching session is £6 (payable as a 7 or 8 week block) with an additional payment of £10 required when juniors move onto a new level of the Bitesize programme.
