Junior Coaching Academy

Every Saturday morning our teaching professionals are introducing new children to our amazing sport.

They learn the fundamentals of the game in a positive, safe environment. They are active outdoors, they learn respect for their peers and their environment, and they form long lasting friendships.

Each week the academy is split into 4 x sessions to suit all ages and abilities.

  • Group 1: 9-10am     10 years+
  • Group 2: 10-11am     8-10 years
  • Group 3: 11:15-12pm     5-8 beginners
  • Group 4: 12-12:45     5-8 experienced


Each session is 45-60 minutes long on the driving range and shortgame area. Don't worry,  parents can make full use of the Bar & Restaurant during this time. The cost is £60 per 10 week term or £35 for 5 weeks. Alternatively you can pay weekly for £8 per session. To enquire please contact the Pro-shop Team on 01803 815000 or email us.

Dainton strives to create a safe environment for children and young adults to enjoy themselves learning this amazing sport. Just recently we have been awarded the SafeGolf accreditation from England Golf. Please see our relevant policies below.
