Diary Event

The Norfolk County Golf Union has embarked on an ambitious and exciting County Boys training programme to prepare for the season ahead. Norman Blanch, County Junior Secretary has designed a coaching plan in concert with Norfolk Family Golf Centre professionals Alex Beckett and Lewis Clarke that focuses on technical skill, distance control, trackman, practice routines, on course risk and reward management and physical/psychological mindset towards achieving improved performance.

An overall squad of twenty four boys representing the Under 14's,16's and 18's are taking part in twenty-one weeks of intensive teaching, with an aspiration to hone their match play technique, reduce handicaps and develop keen camaraderie and team spirit. This will conclude in March allowing the boys time to adopt and impart their scholarship
during the summer fixtures.

Under 12's and 14's manager Nick Macartney and rcent addition to the management team Sammy Martin are supporting Norman and the programme towards a successful 2019 campaign, that profiles the player, underwrites purposeful practice in tandem with
yardage, ball flight and putting control. With injury prevention in mind Pilates has been added to the schedule to further enlighten players towards good posture, flexibility and core stability.

The NCGU are also running four junior academies at Royal Norwich, King's Lynn,
Bawburgh and Costessey Park with Sheringham starting one soon. They are specifically targeted towards younger boys trying to gain their first handicaps and if anyone is interested simply contact your nearest club to be included.

The Union has invested heavily in our future junior talent and are seeking sponsors to continue the project and would personally like to thank Robert Waugh for his donation, which has funded part of the initiative and Bawburgh Golf Club. Practice matches have been arranged to ready the Under 18's for their first competitive game against Bedfordshire and Leicestershire in the B.U.T Trophy to be played on the 17th March at Great Yarmouth and Caister GC.
