Junior Golf Academy

The Steve Russell Golf Academy is committed to the development of junior golf in and around the Bridgnorth area.
The Academy has a structured junior coaching programme providing a broad introduction into golf covering all aspects of the game. The programme creates a pathway for juniors from 5 years old guiding them through to full adult membership.

Steve Russell "I'm very proud of my academy and the prospect it presents for our younger golfers. My Academy is all about learning about the game whilst enjoying it. I look forward to seeing you all at the Academy in 2016."

Junior Golf Coaching Programme

The Steve Russell Golf Academy Junior coaching programme runs from April to October on Saturday afternoons.

Juniors age 5 and upwards are all welcome. (All Juniors aged 5 must be accompanied by an adult during the coaching sessions)

The lessons give a broad introduction into golf covering all aspects of the game.
Each group consists of 8 - 10 juniors of similar ability.

The coaching is based on a structured 5 week course.

At the end of each 5 week course the juniors will receive a work book covering the various aspects of the game featured in the previous weeks together with a certificate relative to the Level they have passed.

Demand for places on the junior coaching programme is very high, so to avoid disappointment it is necessary to book your place in advance.

The 5 week course at 1 hour a week costs £25
