Our program include the National ‘Golf Passport’ learning stages that are multi-layered for a complete novice golfer, into a junior golfer ready for membership at a golf club with 3 key levels: START, LEARN and PLAY.
- START level is all about fun and an elementary introduction to golf.
- LEARN level is a move towards technical instruction through games based learning, always with the emphasis on fun.
- PLAY level teaches the child to apply their learning to the golf course, preparing them for potential club membership and competition. However, access to the golf course and playing golf on a course are important features of the Junior Golf Passport from the START in order to develop a real connection to golf.
The program is presented as both a physical and web based resource using both formats to track performance and progression. Our programs are delivered in 5-week blocks covering a different subject each week. For additional information please scroll to the bottom of this page.

The website for the Junior Golf Passport plays a huge role in the strength and success of the program. The website offers a comprehensive support tool for child and coach allowing both parties to track progression and performance. The website also includes: player profile, messaging, player locker room, online shop, games, quizzes and much more.
The equipment needed to run the program is very minimal. Alongside traditional facilities and equipment such as the driving range and practice ground, putting green, practice bunker, golf course and cones, the games do not require any additional equipment.
Volunteers and parents can play a huge part in the program and it is recommended to engage parents from day one and throughout the coaching program. The involvement of parents is encouraged to help aid the learning potential of their own child.
One key consideration of the program is safety. Safety is listed as a Skill for Life within the program and applies to all those involved including children parents, volunteers and coaches. Steps are taken in each session plan to provide clear guidelines for safety guidelines.
