Louth Golf Club rewarded the next generation of junior talent at a special graduation ceremony last week.

The club held a presentation ceremony for their Junior Passport to Golf graduates who reached their first level of attainment. The Passport to Golf is a coaching programme for all ages to encourage young golfers into the game.

A total of 15 juniors, aged between six and 12, reached the first level this year, and the club will run the programme again from April next year.

Louth GC stage junior golf activities throughout the year and their next event is on Saturday, October 31 at the Meridian Louth Leisure Centre from 11am.

They were presented with their certificates and T-shirts by Louth Golf Club’s junior committee representative Colin Trestrail at the ceremony.

Afterwards the club held indoor activities for the juniors to practice their golf with parents included.

Nick Taylor, Louth GC head professional, said: “It’s the first time I’ve used the Passport to Golf and was amazed at how well the children took to the lessons.

“Having a structured course with a booklet, so both pupil and teacher can see their progress, not only made learning golf easier, but also great fun.”
