YUGC Junior Section

The YUGC Junior Section principally offers elite coaching and scratch team competitions to the most promising junior golfers from member clubs.

The junior coaching for the squad takes place at Malton & Norton Golf Club  under the stewardship of Michael Brooks. With 24 promising young golfers ranging in age and ability but all whom show technical ability and a passion for the sport. They receive  coaching sessions within all aspects of the game of golf to help build their skill levels and a understanding of how best to manage their game.

Coaching is now in place for the younger higher handicap juniors, this takes place at Pike Hills Golf Club under the guidance of professional Ian Tailby and assistant Steve Elliot. In this section the juniors are age from as young as 8 to 16 and with a wide range of abilities and handicaps. 

The YUGC Junior section are part of the Yorkshire Inter District Junior League which is a scratch team event consisting of the 8 different Yorkshire Unions playing against each other in a league format. The teams consist of 12 juniors and each event is a 36 hole match with foursomes played in the morning and singles in the afternoon.

In addition to these seven matches the YUGC Juniors also compete in the IDU Team Championships, which is a team of 6 playing in a 36 hole stroke play event off scratch.

This support is critical in helping to identify, organize, support and transport juniors to any coaching, matches and squad training sessions.
