Junior Coaching We work with golf clubs and schools in East Lothian to ensure that golf is affordable and accessible for all children. We introduce over 1000 Primary 5 children every year to golf as part of their PE curriculum. Children can then sign up to affordable coaching at local clubs and continue to progress through the coaching pathway to the best of their ability.

If so we would love to hear from you and can help you to gain your ASQ Award for Golf Coaching Assistants (FORMERLY KNOWN AS LEVEL 1). For more details on how to get involved click here
Scottish Golf's National Junior Framework is available to all affiliated golf clubs in Scotland and is a one-stop-shop that will enable you to plan, fund, manage and grow your junior section all in one place. The Framework supports clubs that want to increase their junior membership and is based on consultation with over 300 experts who work on the frontline of junior golf. This included input from partner organisations such as the Paul Lawrie Foundation, Stephen Gallacher Foundation, PGA, R&A, sportscotland, Golf Foundation, Junior Golf Scotland and Children’s Golf Trust. There are 6 development "pillars" in the framework: 1. Learn to Golf, 2. Golf in Schools, 3. Events and Competitions, 4. Funding and Support, 5. Safe Golf and 6. Training and Education.
