Skills challenge at English clubs

12.05am 22nd February 2008 - Management Topics

The English Golf Union and English Women’s Golf Association are inviting affiliated clubs to take up the 2008 National Skills Challenge for juniors.

The exciting and innovative Skills Challenge covers the five golfing disciplines of putting, chipping, pitching, bunker play and long game and encourages juniors to practice their game and improve their skills.

Any affiliated golf club can join the Challenge and they will receive a variety of free resources including manuals, scorecards and posters. Golf clubs can choose to take part in the three official Challenge events, giving players an opportunity to qualify for the National Final at Woodhall Spa, or they can simply use the Challenges as part of their coaching activities.

All information regarding the National Skills Challenge, including Challenge dates and FAQ’s, can be found online at Golf clubs and juniors only need to register there once and can then login to the interactive online site for information, advice and activities.

Junior Organisers at affiliated golf clubs will shortly be receiving a promotional letter regarding EGU and EWGA junior initiatives including the National Skills Challenge. The letter will highlight the variety of junior support currently available from EGU and EWGA and it is hoped that Junior Organisers will find this information helpful when planning for their 2008 season.

The National Skills Challenge is an initiative jointly provided by the EGU and EWGA via England Golf’s ‘Whole Sport Plan’ for golf and is an integral part of England Golf’s vision to ‘Grow the Game’.
