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.
For all other enquiries contact Jane Burley on 07885311641.
Junior Captain – Fynn Colley
I was really pleased to be asked to be Captain for the Junior team in 2023.
I love my golf and have an ambition to become a PGA Tour player. My golf journey started when I joined Market Harborough three years ago although I first picked up a golf club when I was three years old. I've been lucky enough to play a number of tournaments this summer representing the club and Leicestershire and Rutland county at both under 14, under 16 and under 18 events.
You'll find me playing golf on the course most Saturdays and Sundays and most evenings after school when the weather and daylight allows. There's a great Junior set up at Market Harborough with competitions on Saturdays, all played in a nice friendly, but competitive environment. There are also opportunities to join the junior academy for some coaching with the KJ Golf Academy.
I'm also a keen cricketer and I've played football in my time, but I now concentrate more on my golf.
I am currently studying for my GCSEs at Robert Smyth Academy. I'm doing PE, business, geography and French, plus the usual English, maths and sciences.
Our PGA Professional Kegan Jamieson runs a fantastic Junior Academy with over 85 juniors involved. He offers group and individual coaching sessions throughout the year. Group coaching sessions for beginners and more experienced players take place on:
Saturdays: 9 – 10am, 10 -11am. 11-12am and 12-1pm at £30pm. There are a maximum of 12 juniors in each group with two coaches.
We welcome applications from all junior boys and girls (up to 18 years old) whether they are new to the game, beginners, or more experienced players.
The membership fee for a year is £45.
What a great way to spend evenings, weekends and school holidays in a safe and friendly environment. If you are interested in becoming a member contact us for further information.
We also welcome you, the parents. We want you to be involved and you are welcome to use our clubhouse facilities either as you wait during your son/daughters coaching or for a meal and a drink!
