Juniors Welcome

We welcome Junior members, whether beginners to the game, or those looking to improve their game.

Junior Captain for 2024 is Noah Haines

Noah is almost 16 years old and has always lived in the Ashbourne area. His primary education was at Parkside School and he currently attends QEGS, where he is studying for his GCSEs.

Golf is not his only sport as he plays Scrum Half for Ashbourne's Rugby Club's 16 Team. Noah's father is also a member at Ashbourne Golf Club and Noah took up golf in 2021 on the club's junior programme. In that relatively short he time has reduced his handicap index to an impressive 10.1. 

In 2023, he achieved  6th place in the Derbyshire Schools Golf Championships at Chevin G.C. and was Division 2 winner in the Erewash Junior Open.


Sessions are run all year round on Saturdays.  Following the coaching sessions there are structured on-course activities.
