At Leek Golf Club we aim to provide children with the environment to enjoy the game of golf, whatever level they may aspire to. We look to provide opportunities that will see them develop a lifelong love for the game, whilst enhancing key life skills and creating lasting friendships.
Our Junior Section currently has over 30 members, consisting of both girls and boys aged between 5 and 18 years old, with more than 20 taking part in some form of junior competition during the 2022 season.
The Juniors at Leek Golf Club have their own set of tees at a shorter distance which are aimed at those new to the game and our younger juniors. From there they can progress to our Red tees, which have been rated to allow both boys and girls to gain official handicaps, and then on to our Yellow and White tees as their games and length develops.
Over the course of the season, we hold regular competitions on a Saturday morning which are a great way to meet other juniors and have some fun out on the course. Our competitions cater for young golfers of all abilities; offering different tees, divisions and 9 or 18-hole competitions as juniors progress.
Throughout the season there will also be other events for juniors to take part in; over the last season we’ve played friendly matches against other clubs, seen the adults and juniors team up to play greensomes alternate shot competitions and introduced a keenly contested Parents vs Juniors match.
We also run a Winter-League to encourage our juniors to remain engaged with the game and each other through the winter months.
Our Club PGA Professional, Greg Rogula hosts group coaching sessions for our juniors on Saturdays throughout the majority of the year. The sessions cover a variety of skills and are provided for children of all abilities; from complete beginners to our more advanced golfers. One-to-one lessons are also available upon request.
These sessions are a great way for beginners to experience the game, develop the skills to progress out onto the course and also to meet other juniors and make friends.
For more information, or to book on to the next block of coaching sessions, please get in touch with Greg on 01538 384767.

Leek Golf Club has a long and proud history of Junior golf, with past members achieving success at both county and national level.
In recent years we’ve seen Leek Juniors represent both Staffordshire County boys’ and girls’ teams and there have also been a number of individual successes at both junior and senior level. We’ve also recently seen 3 of our Juniors continue their education and golf careers at Universities in America whilst another has gone on to join the golf operations team at JCB Golf and Country Club. All great examples of the opportunities that junior golf can lead to.
