Foreword from Junior Organiser 2017
Here at at Phoenix we run two sections within
the Juniors, they are the 'Pre Junior' section that has an age range
from 5 to 10, and a 'Junior' section 11 to 18.
We believe that Junior golf must aim initially to make the game fun and
exciting, aiming to encourage all levels of capability to take part,
and to be enthused about the friendships and rewards that the game can
offer, at whatever level is is eventually played.
We have a very strong Junior set up with a total commitment, a great
course that junior talents can be built on, and with those facilities
to match the forward thinking of our professionals, and supportive
older members, we can see that at Phoenix we have a great future in the
making, that we will by our endeavours in support of Junior golf,
continue to build on.
The support of all at the club who have junior golf at heart, have been duly
rewarded over the last few years with the number of the Juniors who have progressed and are now part of the successful Scratch team who won the SUGC Division 1 Championship in 2014 and 2015 as well as several other SUGC Team and Individual competitions. Several of our Juniors through their dedication in 2015 had their efforts rewarded by winning SUGC Juniors events and being selected to play in District and County level Teams.

Junior Organiser 2017
Foreword from Junior Captain 2017
As this is only my 3rd year as a junior member, I can’t thank enough all the members and professional staff who have been great to me, introducing me to the club and making me feel comfortable
It is a great honour to be Junior Captain this year alongside Alan Askey, Club Captain and Wendy Nicklin, Lady Captain. I wish them a successful season.
During my time here I have seen all the hard work what goes off behind the scenes, these being from the pro staff arranging the competitions, to Glynn Perry our Junior Organiser doing a great job for us. I just want to thank them for all the hard work they put in and hopefully we can have a successful year.
Good luck to all the members and teams this year who will be representing Phoenix Golf Club both Juniors and Seniors.
