The FUEL junior golf programme runs regular junior ‘course days’ on courses which are designed for kids! We use a coloured teeing system which grows as children get longer off the tee and progress through the FUEL grading system. In total, we have 7 different coloured tees to enable juniors of all abilities to play on the course no matter how far they hit it or their experience level.
Our ‘course days’ are for children aged from 5 to 16 years old to play in and are organised by Thomas Devine and our Junior Organisers, Phil Smith and Simon Moss. There are no special dress codes, they don’t need to be a member, they don’t need a handicap, and we can even lend them some clubs if they don’t have their own. All we require is a parent/carer accompanies them around if they have little playing experience or are under 13 years old.
‘Course days’ cost £3 to play in and we currently run 3 forms of competition at Oulton Hall. All competitions are played on the same day at our ‘Course Saturdays’.
- Our 5 Hole Competitions are designed to provide ALL children with initial on course experience. These are run with very specific, appropriate length holes, which will allow your child to play holes that are the correct length for their current skill level. As a guide, the 5 hole competitions are most appropriate for children who have just passed or are working towards their black or green grading
- Our 9 Hole Competitions are designed for children with a slightly higher skill level that would suit playing more and also longer holes. These competitions are played from longer and more challenging red tees around holes 19-27 at Oulton Hall. Again, as a guide, the 9 hole competitions are most appropriate for children who have passed or are working towards at least their blue grading
- Our 18 hole Competitions are designed for older children who have a handicap of 28 or less. These competitions are played around holes 1 – 18 at Oulton Hall
