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 – Mark Willis
I was thrilled to find out I would be Junior Captain for the 2022 season at Market Harborough Golf Club. It is an opportunity I am proud to be chosen for and shall always remember fondly.
Throughout my life, golf has always been present. Initially I’d only heard of the game from my family and their pleading for me to join them. Finally, they wore even my stubborn nature down when I was eleven when I began to play, and haven’t stopped since that day. From the moment I started back in 2015, I have been a member of Market Harborough Golf Club and I have enjoyed growing up in such a welcoming environment. Competitive golf has helped to develop me into a stronger player and, like many, one who likes to win. I eventually gained my first official handicap of 28 in late 2017 and have been working my way down since then to my current handicap of 18.1. However, the friendly community of junior golfers I have been able to play alongside has broadened my view of the game beyond competing alone and I have enjoyed playing alongside my fellow juniors in the Junior League competitions, representing Market Harborough Golf Club in 2019 and 2020. Playing at Market Harborough Golf Club has granted me additional opportunities such as playing County level for Leicestershire in the Anglian and Midlands leagues in 2018.
As for my personal life, I am currently 17 years old and I am studying Geography, Biology and English Language and Literature at Bishop Stopford Sixth form, Kettering, in hopes of doing an English degree next year. I partook in other sports such as football from 2010-2017 and horse riding but stopped both to focus on my primary passion of golf.
I am overjoyed for the next year and hope I can contribute back to the Golf club and Junior section which has allowed me to progress as a player and I am looking forwards to playing at Woodhill Spa for the Junior League team in 2022.
