Wednesday 12th January
Happy New Year to everyone and I hope 2017 is a great golfing year for your child. Exciting times here at Little Golfers with some new technology to enhance our group and individual lessons, Bruce the Shark popping up during our lessons and more plans to make your child's experience with us even better.
Numbers are on the up and Little Golfers teaches around 200 children per week, making us one of the biggest junior academies around.
We have half term and Easter holiday camps in the diary, a competition fixture list ready and now just praying for some warmer weather.
Tuesday 6th December
So the count down to Christmas is on and the weather has turned. If you need any ideas for presents for your little golfers then check out our lesson offer. Bruce the shark has been amazing children all over and everyone loves him. He has been up a lot at Sandown, in some schools during their clubs and at its first school fair, which was great to raise some funds for the school. Lessons are slowly finishing for the term but after some Turkey and too much chocolate, 2017 is looking good for Little Golfers. I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Wednesday 9th November
The Shark is here and working and its just so amazing, I love it. Get your children down to Sandown park and let them have a go at this unique, UK first, golf shark. Email us firstname.lastname@example.org
Tuesday 4th October
The Shark is coming.......... Great news here at Little Golfers as the first shark will be hitting our shores soon. The 7ft high 10ft long inflatable shark will be a great target for our juniors to try and chip into its mouth, which will make our group lessons, birthday parties and holiday camp that little bit more awesome and add some bite. It will also be available for hire for that school fete, charity do or event.
Thursday 15th September

Wednesday 30th March - Easter Cup
Yesterday saw our 3rd competition and first Little Golfers major of the year. 9 junior golfers battled the wet and windy conditions and play very well, considering the ball was going nowhere across the wet ground and blown all over the place by the wind. Arthur made it 2 wins from 2 starts with an impressive 6 over par, 33. This now sees Little Golfers getting handicaps and the competitions will move from a flag format onto a stableford format, making it a lot fairer and every junior has an equal chance of winning now. Handicaps and results from the Easter Cup can be made on our competition page.
Thursday 24th March - Spring Term School Competition
Wednesday 23rd March saw the first Little Golfers school competition to take place at Sandown Park Golf Centre, 36 children from 8 schools took part. Children from Kew College, Banstead Infant School, St Ann's Heath, Our Lady of the Rosary, Buckland, South Farnham and Manor Junior put the skills their learnt at their school clubs into practice around the pitch and putt course. With 50 shots to get as far round the golf course as possible, an impressive Jack from Banstead Infant school, finished the whole course in 44 shots to take the trophies back to his school. It was a great event and another one will take place during the summer term. Thanks to all the children who took part and their parents for supporting and helping.
Monday 21st March
Last Saturday saw 16 juniors battle out on a chilly afternoon and played really well. Loads of PB's and both the over 7s and under 7s were won with a great score of 35.

This term the course will be inside, and the main focus will be water hazards. Yes the holes will be shorter than last term but the amount of water placed around the course will challenge every golfer. Can they complete the course without going in any water............ The leader board will keep being updated, so keep checking for your schools results and good luck to everyone.

Monday 29th September - Ryder Cup and coaching
Wow what a great weekend of golf. Love the Ryder Cup and I hope you had it on in your house and that your children watched a bit of it as least. The Ryder Cup has to be the best golf event to watch to inspire children to play. We are well into the new term and I hope your children are enjoying their golf sessions. Just a note to say Andy Little is committing himself to deliver as much of the coaching as possible. Andy was in fact trying to pull away from the coaching to manage the expanding business however due to a few changes Andy can focus again on coaching and deliver great sessions like he is known for. I hope your children get to experience at least one session with Andy soon.
Monday 14th July - Congratulations to St Bedes Junior School
The Summer term competition has finished, every school we work with who had the space to complete the golf course has taken part, and the winners this term are St Bedes Junior School in Send, with a great score of 10 under par. Considering the competition takes the best 4 scores from the group and the group at St Bedes has only 5 children it is a great team effort, so well done. South Farnham Junior School also had 10 under par but because the group has 12 children they have lost on countback this term, but watch this space for the Autumn term.
Monday 9th June - Our National School Golf Competition has started
The Open is heading to your childs school. This terms golf competition will see each school playing 3 designed holes taken from Royal Liverpool GC, the course where The Open is being played this year.
