How much does the programme cost?
The total cost of attending the Academy is £95. This includes all 15 weeks of the programme but also includes a full years junior membership to the club. Your child does not need to be a junior member of the Club to attend Block 1 which is a cost of £12. Sign-up for junior membership at £59 typically follows, and then £12 for the remaining two blocks. This gives our young golfers access to the club, the facilities and all the other events geared to our junior golfers for the entire year. Junior Membership is a simple annual cost with no obligation or pressure to continue. This is our way as a club to encourage and develop grass roots golf that is safe, fun and above all inexpensive.

When does the programme start?
Actual start dates vary depending on the yearly school calendar. Typically Block 1 starts after the school Easter holidays with Block 2 finishing before the school summer holidays. Block 3 then starts after the school summer holidays and concludes prior to the school October break.
What day and time, and how long do sessions last?
Sessions are always Tuesday nights starting at 5pm. Sessions last approximately an hour and a half until 6.30pm.
Do I need my own equipment?
No, don't worry. When starting out the Club can provide clubs and equipment to use if you do not have any of your own. Kids do start to bring their own gear as they progress to golf on the course. David can advise you on the myriad of options to find both used and new equipment that will fit the player and the budget.
What can the kids wear?
Comfort is key. Sessions are outdoors so please dress appropriately for the weather. Dress code is relaxed at the Club. Generally sports gear is recommended, but we encourage our young golfers to leave their favourite football shirts for Saturdays!
Where can parents park?
The driving range at Crail Golfing Society has it's own car park; located on the left as you arrive at the golf club. The car park has ample space and is a reserved drop off and meeting point for our Junior Academy sessions.
