Gailes Golf:Leisure has teamed up with kids golf club brand, GolPhin, to stage the Juniors Do Golf family open day between 12pm and 5pm.
Children from across the region will get the chance to meet The Gailes’ Head PGA Professional, Scott Garrett, and learn more about the Juniors Do Golf programme at Ayrshire’s leading golf and leisure club.
The Gailes’ team of golf experts will be in the juniors bays on the driving range, where kids will be able to try out GolPhin clubs and take part in a variety of fun activities, including a giant darts board for target practice, a chance to name one of the robot ball collectors and enter a competition to win one-to-one golf lessons.
The structured programme is designed to support children in their journey from complete beginner to competitive golfer, focusing on mind, body and motion.
Kids also get access to the MyPathway2Golf app, which includes training videos, games and practice sessions. Coaches can set challenges and there are various levels that the kids can progress through from bronze, silver and gold.
The Gailes’ head PGA professional, Scott Garrett, leads the Juniors Do Golf programme and is passionate about junior golf development.
