The Junior section at Copthorne Golf Club has a vibrant and active membership. Junior members at Copthorne are able to play their golf on one of the best courses in Sussex and it's reckoned that if you can play well at Copthorne then you can play well almost anywhere. The section is run by our Junior Organisers and one of our Assistant Professionals.
Russell Buxton (PGA Professional) looks after our section and holds coaching sessions for young starters and development groups on Saturday afternoons as part of the Junior Academy. Tuition is also available from another of our PGA Professionals, Dean Powley.
In addition, teaching sessions with school children locally in Copthorne are held and individual lessons for juniors can be provided for the discounted rate of £15 per half hour lesson (usually £20).
During the course of the year there is the opportunity to play in monthly medals and stablefords, as well as many other Trophy competitions. Other competitions include winter & summer knockouts, the Club Championship, Club matches and County events. In addition there is opportunity for those improving players to participate in both gentlemen’s (boys) and ladies' (girls) competitions.
Also, for those with ever-improving handicaps at different age groups there may also be the chance to play at county level. Look out for the County age-group championships on the Sussex County websites; http://www.sussexgolf.org for the boys and http://www.sclga.com for the girls.
Any junior wishing to become a member or if you wish to find out more information about our Junior section please contact us, either via e-mail or come along to the club where you can always talk to our friendly PGA Professionals or our club officials.
