At Rustington we welcome young players and have an active Junior membership. Anyone under 20 years of age is treated as a ‘Junior member’ and is then entitled to greatly reduced fees. Junior membership is £50 for the year. This gives juniors unlimited access to the main course, academy course, par 3 course, and weekly ClubsBuddy Cup competition. Our Junior Organiser Rob Chruszcz who is also a full time golf coach at Rustington is committed to helping juniors develop, improve their skills and ensure they enjoy the process.
The ClubsBuddy Cup is a weekly competition open to all RGC junior members. This takes place over 9 holes on the par 3 course. All juniors who play in the ClubsBuddy cup receive an unofficial handicap, this works the same as an official handicap and is a great way of introducing juniors to the handicap system. The maximum score on any hole is a 6, therefore maximum handicap is 27. The ClubsBuddy Cup takes place every Saturday at 12.45 & Sunday at 11am. You do not need to sign up for this competition, just turn up!
The Cranfield academy at Rustington offers group coaching sessions for juniors age 5 – 12. These take place after school and at weekends and run in conjunction with the school terms. The classes not only aim to develop golfing ability, but also to build self confidence, social skills and self esteem. Classes are limited to a maximum of eight people and no previous experience is necessary. The first session is free and discounted prices are available when two or more family members sign up for the classes. Term time coaching is £8 per session. Individual lessons are also available for juniors Cranfield Academy also organises Junior Golf Camps that run in the school holidays. All camps run from 10am – 3pm, there is also the option to do half days.
