Yelverton Golf Club & Head Professional Adam Frayne (PGA) welcome juniors past, present and new to the opening of the Par 3 short course on the 29th April. Come and enjoy the challenge of the new 9-hole course and have a day of fun. Maybe set a course record!

Yelverton Golf Club visit Widewell Primary School

Adam Frayne our newly elected senior professional and Andy Hill our newly elected Junior organisor made an initial visit to Widewell Primary School to run some fun golf games for 110 children from the age of 7-11 years old.

From this 20 pupils signed up for a five week course headed by Adam with Andy’s assistance. We have now completed the 3rd week and the enthusiasm of the children is high.

We hope that some of these keen young golfers will sign up to Adams Saturday morning sessions and enter into the golf access programme and eventually progress via this system and the par 3 course onto full handicaps and become active golfers on the main course that the whole membership will be proud of.

Widewell School are part of the Horizon Multi Academy Trust (8 Schools) and as a follow up to this initiative along with our new partners American Golf we will be showcasing what we can both offer youngsters at an Horizon staff training day on the 16th of April. This day will be attended by 200 staff from the eight schools and further visits to the other schools in the MAT are anticipated.
