Junior Open Day Massive Success

Rookery Park Golf Club Junior Open Day Sunday 17th April 2016


On Sunday 17th April I held a Junior Open Day, the aim of this event was to encourage new juniors to visit the club and give golf a go. Over the last two months I had visited 6 schools in the local area, running free taster sessions to each class on the school field , I handed out just over a thousand leaflets offering a free chance to give golf a try at rookery park. The Day was a success, unfortunately the rain and sleet interrupted us a few times but it didn’t dampen our spirits, we had nearly 80 juniors attend all together and I have already got 12 new members of my Junior Academy from the day. I am now having to run three groups on a Saturday to control the numbers. I would like to thank the members who assisted me on the day of the open, your help was very much appreciated. Over the summer I am holding Junior Open events on the Par 3 course, the aim of these events are to give our current young juniors a chance to get a Par 3 handicap and play in some competitive events, The entries have also been opened up to juniors from other clubs as I am working in partnership with Stoneham Barns Golf Centre and St Audreys, near Ufford Park where these events already happen and attract a lot of support. 

I hope that the Junior Section can continue to grow it the way it is now and days like the open day can happen every year too encourage more people to see the fantastic facilities we offer at Rookery Park.
