Prudhoe launches new junior programme

Prudhoe Golf Club has launched a new junior golf development programme as it looks to build on its track record of producing elite-level golfers.

The programme includes a free membership incentive for new juniors under the age of 18 who are relatives of Prudhoe members, and free monthly group coaching. Juniors will also be able to take part in club events throughout the season and represent the junior team in league games. They will also receive a Prudhoe Golf Club Junior hoodie.

The new programme will be led by Prudhoe’s director of golf, Andrew Scrimshaw. Having started his own golfing career at Prudhoe, PGA professional Andrew has competed in tournaments around the world and is a regular winner on the NE/NW PGA circuit.

“I’m really looking forward to developing the junior programme at Prudhoe,” said Andrew. “I came through the ranks at Prudhoe and the club has one of the best track records in the region for producing county and England players.

“I came back to Prudhoe to help the club grow and creating a thriving junior section is going to be a big part of the club’s long-term future. We’ve got great support from the committee on the membership structure, our coaching programme is now in place, and I’m excited to see how the programme develops in the coming months.”
