EuroPro Tour launches bold junior golf initiative

Chart Hills1

The GolfCatcher PGA EuroPro Tour is seeking to reinvigorate grassroots golf after partnering with The School of Golf.

The School Of Golf will provide free expert sessions to local children at schools near to clubs on this season’s EuroPro Tour, hoping it opens a gateway to golf for young people who may not have already been introduced to the game.

“We are hoping to create more junior engagement and participation, introduce juniors who have never played the game,” said the two founders of The School Of Golf Matt Mahoney and Jack Cole.

• Titleist T100S irons – FIRST LOOK!

“Following on from this we will give schools the opportunity to continue development with online content. Overall we want to open golf up to as many juniors as possible and create a positive experience.”

A typical session will entail groups being split up to focus on the fundamentals of the game from the grip, aim and set up with fast-paced games throughout keeping children engaged, active and enjoying themselves.

• WATCH – The best hole-in-one you’ll ever see!

The School Of Golf will be reaching out to local schools close to venues such as Luton Hoo Hotel Golf & Spa, Donnington Grove, Chart Hills Golf Club, Clevedon Golf Club, East Sussex National and Studley Wood Golf Club.
