Juniors

Aberdovey has a thriving Junior Section with well over 100 members. With membership categories for Under 10's, Upto 15's and Under 21's there is a range of ages and abilities for which various golf competitions can be enjoyed through the year.

These range from the Junior Club Championship, the 'Gold Cup' knock out, Monthly Medals, Running Eclectics and Stablefords and a variety of Foursomes competitions. These competitions are structured so as to encourage Juniors of all ages and abilities to play golf in a safe and fun environment.

Members at Aberdovey have access to three measured courses. This helps the Juniors in handicapping them at all ages, enabling them to progress from gaining a first handicap through to a full CONGU handicap based on age and ability.

  • Bronze Division 10 years & under with handicaps of 27 and over play 9 holes from Blue tees;
  • Silver Division 11 years and over (or 10 years and under with a handicap of 26 or under for 9 holes) play from LGU tees except the 3rd;
  • Gold Division 13 years and over, or 9 hole handicap of 15 or less for boys and 19 or less for girls, play 18 holes from yellow tees for boys and red tees for girls.

With introductory sessions at local Primary and Secondary schools and a very active coaching and development programme headed up by the Club's Professional, Andy Humphreys, Juniors are really encouraged to take up playing golf. With the Golf Foundation's Tri Golf Scheme and Golf Xtreme equipment that the Club has available, as well as its practice equipment and facilities, there is ample opportunity for Juniors to have fun, develop their skills and ability to play the game as well as to progress as individuals.

A Juniors' Calendar of Events is produced annually, the section enjoys a Children's Christmas Party each year and eases communication with use of e-mail and a facebook page.

The Club is committed to abiding by the Golf Development Wales and Children in Golf policy guidelines for Protection of Children in our care by:

  • Ensuring that all children, young people and vulnerable people have a fun, safe and positive experience when playing golf.
  • Recognising its responsibility to safeguard children's and young people's welfare by protecting them from poor practice, abuse and bullying.
  • Placing the welfare of young people first and adopting practices that support, protect and empower them.
