Suffolk Golf holds junior golf initiative

Following the success last year of the SJG Golf Roots Initiative, Suffolk Golf is running more free junior golf sessions, now expanded to five Suffolk Golf Clubs. As the numbers of juniors playing golf in Suffolk have declined over recent years Suffolk Golf launched the ‘SJG Golf Roots Initiative’ in 2014 to encourage more juniors into the game.

The scheme was organised in partnership with the Golf Foundation and last year was a great success with more than 100 new juniors coming along to the free sessions and this year with this increase in clubs offering these sessions they hope to get even more juniors having a go at golf.

The sessions are free and open to all boys and girls aged eight to 14 in Suffolk. The Golf Sessions aim to be fun, help the juniors learn more about golf and encourage them to continue playing and enjoy the game. The first of these sessions will held on the Thursday, 13 August. More at:
