What we do

The Junior Programmes at Styal Golf Club have evolved over the last fifteen years. Mark Johnson has developed both the coaching programmes and competition schedules. “The programme is designed to challenge and motivate golfers of all abilities and to provide a clear pathway of development. I have redesigned and developed each part of the programme over the years and now feel we deliver one of the best junior golf programmes in the North West.PGA Golf Professional Mark Johnson.

Styal Golf Club is a superb facility offering a magnificent 24 bay driving range, par 3 course and 18 hole golf course. The friendly welcoming atmosphere makes it the ideal family venue, ideal for the Junior Programme.

There are two age groups; 6 to 8 year olds and 9 to 16 year olds. Both schemes follow a structured pathway that aim to provide a wide variety of challenges and competitions as well as teaching the etiquette and rules of the game.

I am privileged to have grown up involved in the fantastic facilities at Styal. Mark and the Styal Junior Development Team do a great job nurturing young talented golfers through the coaching programme. They provide great opportunities to compete, a vital ingredient that has got me where I am today”, David Horsey, PGA European Tour Winner.

6 – 8 Programme

The ‘6 to 8’ golf programme is designed especially for children aged 6 to 8 as an introduction to golf and then provides an opportunity to develop and improve their golf game with juniors of a similar age. The sessions are based around fun games, challenges and activities, acting as preparation for the Five Level Junior Golf Programme.

On commencing the programme each junior will receive their own progress folder. This will contain a record card with various skill tests, challengers and quizzes to complete. Medals are awarded upon completion of each level.

The sessions are run by PGA Golf Professional Mark Johnson and PGA Assistant Professional Nico Porro.

Each course of lessons runs alongside the school term so generally last between four and six weeks. For this age group each session lasts for half an hour and the group size is three or four per class (if it is a class of four, the session lasts for 40 minutes). This allows for more ‘one to one’ coaching time.

Details of upcoming courses are available upon request. The cost varies depending on the length of each course but typically a five week course costs £49 (approximately £10 a week which includes use of range balls, loan of equipment if needed and prizes).

Group size is usually 5 to 6 golfers per group (max 7). Cost is £99 for each 8 week course.

Details of upcoming courses are available upon request.
