Crown Golf starts them young for free

Crown Golf has dropped membership fees at all 25 of its clubs for juniors aged 13 and under who have at least one parent, grandparent or guardian who is a 7-Day or 5-Day member at the golf club. The offer named Juniors Go Free also extends to members who have joined Crown Golf’s new Freedom Play flexible membership, which is available at 18 of the group’s properties.

Members can each enrol up to two children or grandchildren in the scheme. Juniors who join under the scheme must play with an adult, when they play on the club’s full-length golf course.

Hundreds of existing junior members will receive an instant benefit, their fees being reduced to nil when they renew their membership this year. Crown Golf estimates the move will quadruple the number of junior golfers across the group.

Crown Golf CEO, Stephen Lewis stated, “We are serious about playing our part in safeguarding the future of the sport and Juniors Go Free is the strongest possible statement we can make. Juniors Go Free means that many existing members will now enrol their children at the club for the first time. Far more families will get fully involved at a Crown Golf club in 2014: we’re sending a clear message out, that golf is not just for the parents.”
