The Shire Academy rookie club is a unique and successful 9 stage development programme for young golfers. Devised, modified and continually updated over 20 years, it provides the ideal platform from which to learn. Simplicity is its key to success.
The 9 stages consist of various achievement certificates awarded when a specific key stage is mastered. These consist of:
- The Hold
- Stance and Posture
- Bunker Play
- Rules and Etiquette
- Basic Swing
The scheme is about 'hands on learning' in a small group environment with plenty of constructive encouragement for everyone. To complement these lessons there are monthly medal competitions held on the Academy Course to test or try newly acquired skills.
Presentations are always held immediately after the event. These presentations provide members with an opportunity to receive trophies, most improved performance awards, certificates or just to be presented to the group as a 'New' member.
By inspiring, motivating and rewarding young players they will go on and develop their true potential.
