The idea behind junior golf at Cockermouth Golf Club is to encourage better swings, more fun, and, ideally, a lifelong enjoyment of the game.
“If I was going to take up golf I wouldn’t know where to start, where to go, what to buy. I wouldn’t have a clue how to get into it.” Male non-golfer (17-18 age group)
So..How Do We Make Golf Accessible for Kids?
Low Membership Fees
We charge a nominal fee for junior golfers. Under 14’s pay just £35 for an entire year of golf. Students between the age of 14 & 21 pay only £60.
Free Trial – Try Before You Join
Under 18’s can play junior golf at Cockermouth Golf Club for a month before deciding if they’d like to join. We want to encourage youth golf participation in Cumbria & as such are making it as easy as possible for kids to get involved.
Free to Use Golf Clubs
We have a shedload & we do mean a shedload of junior golf clubs so there is no need to buy any for new junior golfers. Again our motivation here is to make participation as easy as possible.
We have blue tees which make the course playable for even the very young.
We want kids playing golf – not just signing up then not playing – to use that’s not success. Kids are the future of the great game of golf. That’s why we offer a free trial & free to use clubs. Beyond that we offer complete flexibility in terms of access.
We have optional formal coaching by an Advanced PGA professional available.
