The Junior Programme has evolved over the last eighteen years. “It’s designed to challenge and motivate golfers of all abilities and provides a clear pathway of development. I have redesigned each part of the programme over the years and we now deliver one of the most fully comprehensive programmes in the North West.” PGA Golf Professional Mark Johnson.
Styal Golf Club is a superb facility offering a magnificent 24 bay flood lit driving range, short game practice facility, par 3 academy course and 18 hole golf course. The friendly welcoming atmosphere makes it the ideal family venue, perfect for the Junior Programme.
There are two age groups; under 10’s and over 10’s. Both 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.
Most of our junior coaching takes place in small groups (typically between 3 and 6 depending on age and level of ability). It keeps it fun, friendly and competitive while allowing quality one to one time.
Group sessions take part every week through school term time and there are sessions taking place every day after school and weekends.

Here come the girls
Following England’s Golf initiative Girls Golf Rocks which we ran at Styal, we now run group sessions for girls only, full on girl power!! We also run girls holiday sessions, watch out for details in the Styal Juniors newsletter.
Recent studies from England Golf suggest that girls stay in the game for longer and hence make more improvement within the sessions and we passionately want to increase the number of girls playing. It’s girls talk, fun and games!
These sessions currently take place on Sunday afternoons. Contact Mark for more info.
Individual Private Coaching
Personal sessions are available with our coaches. These provide the perfect opportunity to look a little more in depth into swing technique and individual development plans. Whether you are looking to fine tune your short game, hole more putts or find some extra yards we can work around your personal needs.
Individual lessons can be booked at a time to suit you and don’t have to be on a fixed regular basis. Lot’s of the juniors take some form of private coaching to compliment the group sessions.
