Junior Coaching and Competitions
For the juniors who want to improve and lower their handicap, coaching opportunities led by PGA Professional, Seamus Duffy, are available.
Thursday is ‘Junior’s Day’ at OGC. Commencing in the spring time and running to the end of August there are coaching sessions adapted to beginners, improvers and our elite Junior players, some of whom represent the club regionally and nationally.
Structured coaching is an excellent way of introducing Juniors to golf at OGC.
The junior section organises competitions during school holidays periods which contribute to selection of the prestigious ‘Junior Golfer of the Year’.
