Graeme Storm launches new Richmond academy

Graeme Storm has officially launched Richmond Golf Club’s new junior academy with an open evening and masterclass.

Youngsters watched Graeme in action before getting the chance to show off their own skills. 

Graeme said: “This year has been a difficult time for everyone, but I’m happy to see golf is thriving and is one of the few sports that is still very accessible.

“It’s great to have the opportunity to bring junior golf to the forefront at Richmond. Saturdays at the club are already buzzing with children and The Golf Foundation’s Golf Passport programme is a proven way to begin a child’s golfing journey through structured learning. I very much hope that more children will visit Richmond and find out about the membership programmes and coaching we have to offer.”

The launch event was also an opportunity to share information about the club’s new Graeme Storm Golf Academy Junior Membership scheme. Junior membership at Richmond is £80 for 12-17-year-olds and includes free coaching on Saturday mornings. The junior coaching sessions are also open to non-members at £6 per hour.
