Junior Section

This years Junior Captain is Alex Bowie My name is Alex Bowie, I am 13 years of age. It has been a tremendous honour for me to be the Boldon Golf Club “Junior Captain” and I would like to thank John Tarn, David Tate and Boldon Golf Club Committee for giving me this opportunity. I have been a member of Boldon Golf Club since the age of 9 and am currently playing off a handicap of 12. I am Boldon’s youngest ever Junior Captain and am privileged to represent the junior team. I am committed, motivated and am a conscientious player and my aim is to encourage, support and develop the junior team in the coming season. In the past I have played at Caris Green at the age of 10 and represented Durham’s Junior Team and we won in the final. In addition I represented Boldon’s Junior team in the Durham County final last year. I have huge amounts of ambition and passion and my goal is to become a professional golfer in the near future.

Boldon Golf Club has a thriving junior section which caters for all. Whether your child wants to start playing but has never picked up a club before or shows the talent to be the next Rory or Tiger. We welcome them all.

Over the last few years with the help of several trained
volunteers, our junior section has become very successful in and around the
north east.

In 2011 the junior team won their league, the county cup and the play-offs against
the other regional league winners. They almost repeated the hat trick in 2012
winning both league titles but not the cup.

The core of this team have gone on to represent the club at
senior level in various county and national events and in 2015 earned the men’s
team promotion to the First Division of the North Durham Union League. It is now the turn of the next generation.

At the other end of the scale, our trained volunteers run
classes for beginners most Mondays during early summer commencing on 13th May 2019 at 5pm. These fun sessions give a great introduction to the game of golf as well the club environment and they are open to everyone. You don’t have to be a member, so why not come along? 

Two Junior taster sessions have been arranged 27th April & 4th May from 10am - Come along and try golf for an hour (no charge) 

The junior coaching Acadamy aims to help create one or the most progressive junior sections in the County, and with all the support we get from senior members we have a very bright future for Boldon Golf Club Junior section.

We aim to provide encouragement and support, with the purpose of enjoying sport for many years to come in a structured, progressive, fun environment. Below is our Child Safeguarding Policy Procedures Pack which we ask everyone including all junior members, their parents, volunteers and staff to sign up to. Please take time to have a look at it and as they keep on telling us, Get into Golf. For more information on Junior golf please call Steve Watkin on 0191 5365360
