Clyne Golf Club – Junior Section
Clyne Golf Club is a Golf Foundation Starter Centre and benefits from receiving a Community Chest Grant, aimed specifically at coaching in secondary and primary schools. Clyne has an extensive Junior Section for both girls and boys. Coaching takes place on a weekly basis for all ages and abilities, for non-members as well as members. We have an adult member of Clyne in charge of the Juniors (Junior Leader) and we also have a Junior Captain.
There are many competitions and events which are open to the Juniors. With the boys, Juniors holding a handicap of 18 and above are eligible to play in the active Stones Section, Juniors holding a handicap of 12 – 18 are eligible to play in the Quartz League and Juniors with a handicap of 6 – 12 are eligible to play in the Links League. For Juniors with a handicap below 6, they are eligible to play in our 1st and 2nd Men’s teams.
For girls with a handicap of 18 or above, they are eligible to play in the Stones Section. All girls are eligible to play in any of the three Ladies’ Teams, all of which are selected in strict handicap order.
Clyne also has a Junior team who play 10 matches in the Glamorganshire Junior League in a foursomes format. There are 8 players in the team.
Clyne also has juniors who have been selected for the Welsh elite training programmes. These juniors have climbed the junior ranks and are now playing in GUW events all over the County of Glamorgan as well as junior and senior Welsh national events. In recent years, Jordan Golley was named as Captain of the Welsh Under-14, Under-16 and Under-18 County Teams as well as being selected to represent Wales in the Boys Home International. Another of our promising juniors Gareth Morgan has also twice reached the finals of the European Junior Open, held in Andalucia, Spain. Gareth, too, was selected to represent Wales in the Boys Home International. Already, a number of Clyne juniors have had a great deal of success in these events which include:
* South Wales Boys
* North Wales Boys
* Welsh Central Boys
* Welsh Order of Merit
The Juniors have their own clubhouse facilities which include a junior locker room and a junior common room with a pool table and a television.
