Beetle Drive: 25th March
Junior Club Fundraiser
A BIG thank you to all of you who supported our Junior Club Fundraiser.
It was fantastic to see almost 100 people of all ages in the clubhouse, creating such a fun atmosphere. As for the fundraising itself, we raised £948, which was topped up by an exceptionally generous donation of £52 to make a total of £1,000.
This money will be spent on equipment, coaching and junior development.
A special thanks to all ladies who provided the delicious home-baking and refreshments, and those who stayed late to help clear up.
Thanks also to Andre Sarafilovic who judged Elliot Leishman’s artistic efforts as the best beetle on show!
Thank you once again for your support.
MGC Child Protection Officer
As MGC is part of the Clubgolf Coaching Programme we have been requested to advise all members of our club who the Child Protection Officer is.
This information needs to be displayed on both our club and junior websites, at the request of the SGU.
Muckhart Junior Section
Competitions and Coaching
All three courses and the Practice Areas are exclusively available to Junior Members on a Thursday evening from 4.45pm until 6.30pm.
The Practice Area is generally available at all times to Juniors.
To encourage Juniors to participate in the sport, we offer the use of free golf equipment to any Junior wishing to join us to take up golf, and the dress code does not apply to Juniors. We encoursge our Juniors to obtain handicaps and to to enter junior competitions both at Muckhart and elsewhere.
Following on from last year, Muckhart Golf Club Junior Section has further embraced the ClubGolf Academy Model for coaching. On Thursday nights, Juniors (aged 9 or over) will be allocated to one of 3 sections according to their level of golfing skills.
The 3 sections are:
- Stage 1 Beginners (Entry Level) (Development)
- Stage 2 Intermediate
- Stage 3 Advanced
Our volunteer coaches are registered with Disclosure Scotland and have been briefed in Child Protection procedures.
Junior Coaching can be a very rewarding experience which is highly valued by the Juniors and by the Club itself. Contact the Junior Convener if you’d like to become a trained junior coach or simply help out.
