Junior Golf at Letterkenny Golf Club commences Sunday 16th May for kids 6yrs to 13yrs and will continue to mid September. Each Sunday evening, Juniors filter out in set time slots accompanied by parents / volunteers that have been Garda vetted as per Golf Ireland protocols. The emphasis is always on learning the basics of Golf, developing skills whilst instilling a love of the game of Golf and hopefully have some fun too. Junior Golf has progressed over the years at Letterkenny G.C. under the wise guidance of members which have included Eddie Harvey, Cathal Roarty, Gerard Duffy plus a mammoth contribution from Catherine Cooke Harkin.
This year the Junior Convenors overseeing the Junior programme are Seamus Patton and Mary Beth Mc Brearty. After a very successful season last year we are looking forward to the year ahead as the Junior programme continues to develop and go from strength to strength. This year a coaching programme will be put in place with PGA Club Professional Seamus Mc Monagle so that our Juniors can see a progression in the game of Golf. We also have two fine young members as Junior Captains – Sarah Mc Brearty and Christian Harris. Sarah is a 6th year pupil at Loreto Milford and Christian is 4th year student at St Eunan’s College. They will embrace their roles with energy, enthusiasm and provide leadership to the young Juniors at Letterkenny G.C. Junior Golf membership at Letterkenny G.C. starts at €50 for kids up to 1st year at secondary school, €130 from 2nd year secondary school up to 18 yrs of age.
