Weymouth Golf Club Junior Academy




The Weymouth Golf Club Junior Academy has been running since 1988 and is run by Des Lochrie our resident PGA Advanced Professional. Des and his team organise and run an active programme of events for both Junior Members and young Tigers. The programme has seen 100's of young children participating, including former world no 3 golfer Paul Casey, and they have also visited virtually every school in Weymouth & Portland introducing the game of golf to children of all ages.

In Recognition of this work Weymouth Golf Club was awarded Dorset's Golf Mark Club of The Year in 2009 then elevated to High Achievers in 2012 and nominated for the National Club of the year.

The aim of the academy is to provide a pathway through grass roots for children of all ages to be introduced to golf through school partnerships and then continue this pathway to develop their skills as they progress through the different levels of membership. The Academy enables children to take part in a variety of different activities including coaching sessions, local and national competitions as well as making new friends along the way.
