The Belfry Introduces Dedicated Junior Golf Programs
The Belfry Hotel & Resort in Sutton Coldfield has launched several new junior golf programmes which will be taught by dedicated instructors for those aged 3 and older with any golfing ability.
Each programme offers activities that are appropriate and engaging for each different age group, including after-school clubs available with a limited group of 8 children on Wednesdays and Saturdays, priced from £54 per term.
Group lessons include the Belfry Minis for those aged 3 to 5, Belfry Eagles for those aged 6 to 11, and Belfry Futures for 12 to 15-year-olds.
Those new to golf will learn the fundamentals of putting, short game, and full swing. Throughout the course, children will also improve their technique while learning golf rules and etiquette and developing their motor skills through fitness.
The Belfry is also offering individual junior lessons, priced from £25 per child, for children who would like to build a basic knowledge before being part of a group, or for experienced children who would like to work on specific skills and accomplish their goals. Each student will be assessed, and the instructor will develop their own personal plan which will ensure the learning process remains fun and engaging.
“We are very excited to be offering a number of new programmes to make golf more accessible to children. It is a fantastic opportunity to introduce more young people to the sport to learn new skills such as leadership and empathy, meet friends and discover new opportunities, all while having a good time,” said Dan Warwick, Head Golf Professional at The Belfry. “We ensure all lessons include fun and games while learning golf fundamentals, and that everyone has access technology and age-appropriate equipment. Our programmes are a great opportunity for aspiring young golfers of all levels to develop and progress their skills as well as learning lifelong values and skills.”
The Belfry Hotel & Resort is also home to home of Robert Rock Junior Tour, run by Midlands European Tour Professional Robert Rock. The tour offers a series of junior golf tournaments, with both 18-hole and 9-hole events, open to all junior golfers under 18.
The Belfry is synonymous with golf and has hosted the Ryder Cup four times – more than any other venue in the world.
The resort also recently unveiled its newly refurbished PGA National Academy offering a unique variety of Toptracer Range products on-site placing the resort on the map as a premier practice destination.
