JOLF is an innovative golf programme for all junior golfers, from the 4 year old novice to the 18 year old elite player. JOLF goes further than other available golf coaching programmes in helping junior golfers achieve a much broader range of skills, attitudes and knowledge. Children will develop the mindset, movement skills, golf skills and passion that are essential for them to become great learners who love playing golf and who strive to be the very best they can be.
Junior Golf Passport is the national and county recognised structured learning programme for children aged 4 - 15 years, endorsed by the PGA, Sport of England and Sussex Golf. The multi-layered programme progresses a young golfer into a junior golfer ready for membership at the golf club, and reaching their full potential. The programme has three key levels: START, LEARN and PLAY. The START level is all about fun and an elementary introduction to golf. The LEARN level is a move towards technical instruction through games based learning, always with the emphasis on fun. The PLAY level teaches the child to apply their learning to the golf course, preparing them for potential club membership and competition.
The programme covers the following key areas of golf:
Putting: Short putting, Long putting, Lag putting, Green reading.
