I was thrilled when I heard I would be the junior captain in 2019 for Market Harborough Golf Club.
I was age 8 when I started learning the basic understandings of golf. In the 7 years I have been playing, I have grown to love the game more and more.
The first golf club I was involved in was Priors Hall Golf Club in Corby, where I was taking part in junior lessons run by our current pro now, Keegan Jamieson, Keegan has helped me with all aspects of golf, who now runs a fantastic junior academy, available to all ages and ability’s.
I joined Market Harborough Golf Club in January 2018. I began with a handicap of 16, and in 6 months I had been cut 4 shots with exceptional play, making me now play off 12. I am participating in both junior and men’s competitions. I am constantly trying to lower my handicap, and I am looking forward to do this by using the golf simulator run by our pro, Keegan Jamieson, throughout the whole year to be improving my game with precise data about my swing.
I currently go to school at Kingswood Secondary Academy in Corby, partaking in many sports the school has to offer. Previously, outside of school and golf, I have participated in other sports such as, cricket, football, rugby, table tennis and karate.
I am looking forward to the next year of being junior captain, as I will be going to represent the club in the junior league matches, home and away.
Welcome to Junior Golf
Market Harborough Golf Club has a flourishing Junior Section of over 70 members run by our Junior Golf Organiser Jane Burley in conjunction with our Professional Kegan Jamieson and a number of volunteers. We aim to offer the chance to have fun, learn and play golf in a safe and enjoyable environment.
Boys and girls participate on an equal basis and are offered experienced coaching and competitive opportunities. Our juniors have the opportunity to use our clubhouse, practice facilities, Simulator, 5 Hole Academy Course and the main golf course (subject to ability and handicap) as well as the chance to play on our 9 Reciprocal courses, Junior and Senior competitions and inter club matches.
Junior can also apply for a Members Bar Card which can be used to purchase soft drinks, food from the Bar and goods from the Pro Shop. We find this gives Parents/Cares the peace of mind that their children do not have to carry cash when they are at the Club.
