Junior Golf Information

Junior Golf at Portumna GC is flourishing at the moment, we have over 90 members from all ages. In 2005 the management committee at the club adopted the Junior Golf Ireland Charter "'Code of Ethics for Golf for Young People"

We have excellent facilities for coaching Juniors of all ages-beside the famous 17th green is a chipping and putting green with sand bunkers as well so you can keep your short game in focus. Also included is a practice ground adjacent to the 1st fairway, so all the facilities are in and around the clubhouse.

The Junior Convenor is Jim Hynes 087 6411711 and the committee are Mairead Taylor O Neill, Sharon Maloney, Ann Carty and Johanna Burke.

We are always looking for volunteers to join our helpers, and we envisage running a Leader Programme held over 1 day in order to train parents both male and female to help with the coaching. We will need about 10 people so if you are interested in becoming a Volunteer ring any of the committee.

Saturday mornings the "Junior Juniors" programme is implemented-this is an innovative idea and it is set up to teach junior boy's and girls from the ages of 6 to 11 years of age. It has proven very successful and we hope to keep it going through the Fall and the Winter.

On Saturdays the 1st tee is reserved from 3pm to 3.45pm for the more senior juniors in other words those kids that can get around the course without causing delays.

The following people are the committee responsible for running the Junior Club
