We welcome juniors of all ages and standards, providing a fun, safe and positive experience when playing golf.
We consider the welfare of children to be paramount and we have met the official quality standard from the national governing bodies of Golf England.
The club has an active mixed junior section consisting of the fox cubs (those players with handicaps above 28/36) and CONGU players.
We support golf’s unique diversity where players of all ages and skills can play golf together, with the interaction between juniors and adults bringing mutual respect.
Juniors at the club are expected to embrace this respect, conduct themselves to the highest standards, and to always remember that other players may not be as physically able as they are.
Junior club nights are held on Mondays. Please view the diary on the website for details or visit the Taunton & Pickeridge Junior section Facebook page.
Competitions for Boys + Girls over 6,9 and 18 Holes of Stableford & Medal Tournaments, Texas scrambles, Pairs, Matchplay with many Trophies to play for during the year.
These nights also give the Cubs a chance to move from the coaching area to the main course, under the supervision of willing volunteers and a dedicated PGA professional coach Simon Stevenson from our Junior Academy
