Programme Structure

Our exceptional approach to junior golf events

The programme runs in 6 week courses through school term time. Classes are generally split up by ages (7 and under, 8-11 and 12+ although golfing experience is also taken into consideration). We offer a variety of times on both Saturday and Sunday and evenings after school.

The programme is structured over 9 levels, each level has 12 categories of challenge to “Pass” or score “Outstanding” on.

In each lesson we train and practice for the challenge which takes place towards the end of the lesson. In each challenge we have 3 pass and outstanding scores to correspond with our 3 age categories in the programme.

Pass stickers can be upgraded to outstanding at several opportunities throughout the level. Things like effort, previous golfing experience etc are taken into consideration in the awarding of stickers at the end of the lesson.

The 12 categories of challenge that earn stickers:
  • Set up/foundations
  • Aim
  • Putting
  • Chipping
  • Pitching
  • Bunkers
  • Driving/Tee Shots
  • Fairway woods/Rescue
  • Irons
  • Conduct
  • Golf knowledge
  • Scoring
  • The Bag Tag System

     

    The Bag Tag System allows the coach to reward children for effort at the same time as providing, at a glance, the level the child has reached. The short term goal for each child is to get them playing on the course as soon as possible and encouraging golfs core skill, being able to score. This is encouraged by regular tournament play with a graduated teeing system working backwards from the green in 3, 6, 9 and eventually 18 hole tournaments.

    There is regular opportunity for children who want to compete, to enter competitions both on the par 3 course and the 18 hole course as the children progress. The Tommy Fleetwood Academy pupils will be supported, coached and encouraged to enter tournaments. For driven competitive juniors, this will be on local, regional, national and international level. For those golfers who are playing golf just for fun, they will find themselves in a relaxed, friendly and fun atmosphere where they will be presented with challenges and tasks that meet them at their current level.

    This programme has been written by Norman Marshall The Head Coach at TFA. Norman first met Tommy as a 6 year old and has gone on to build a reputation as one of the leading junior coaches in the UK. Norman is the County U14 development Squad Coach and his pupils and former pupils have enjoyed success at every single level in amateur and professional golf.
