Weekly Junior Academy Lessons 

Junior golf lessons are where most of the worlds best players develop a passion and love for the game. It is where many players start, meet friends and learn skills that will never leave them. We all know how hard learning a new skill can be, especially the older we get. This is why our weekly sessions are open to children aged 5-15 regardless of ability. 

PGA Fellow Professional hosts the Junior Golf Academy at The Mendip Golf Club. These sessions are split into three groups depending on age and ability. 

Saturday 9.00am - 10.00am - Beginners / U7's 

Saturday 10.30am - 11.30am - Intermediate / Advanced

  • £4.00 per session.
  • Open to members and non-members of the Mendip Golf Club.
  • As we know golf can be an expensive hobby and children often change their minds, we provide suitable equipment for all new golfers to use in lessons. 
  • There is no need to wear golf clothing, however suitable footwear and clothing is needed as some lessons will be outside
