“For many years golf clubs and professionals have helped develop young talent in Staffordshire. However, unless a boy or girl was a low handicap golfer the chances of that child developing to their full potential and representing their county was slim. “This programme is designed to identify talented juniors, including children that may not have had a great deal of experience or may not yet be members of a golf club.”After the assessment days have been completed all the children will be contacted via their parents, with successful juniors given a personal programme to work towards. Fred added:
“The programme will run over two years and we will hold assessment days pre and post season annually. Any junior not selected for the Academy after the assessment days will not be forgotten. Guidance and direction will be provided to help each child further their golfing ability.”To register for the assessment day at Lichfield Golf and Country Club visit www.staffsgolfpartnership.com.
