West Cornwall Golf Club Junior Section

West Cornwall Golf Club has an active Junior Section and we welcome young golfers of all abilities, from total beginner to single-handicap, world-dominating young girls and boys. At present the club caters for some 30 young golfers ranging from 7-17 years of age. One of our Professionals, Matt Tucknott, is also Cornwall's Director of Junior County Coaching.

The Junior Section has a dedicated tee-time every Saturday morning from 8.30 – 10.00. During this time our PGA Professionals and Junior Golf Organisers provide coaching sessions for younger golfers who are just beginning their golfing journey.


Our aim, first and foremost, is to ensure that our youngsters enjoy themselves and learn new skills through focused tuition from our Professional staff. Regular taster sessions are organised which centre on the basic elements of golf. Graded activities range from short game practise sessions; chipping, putting and bunker technique, to 18-hole competitions for the more accomplished juniors, supervised by PGA Level 1 coaches and volunteers.


There is always a buzz around the club each Saturday morning commencing at 8.30am with eager and expectant youngsters and parents, enthusiastic to begin the morning activities, at times in conditions which would be daunting for seasoned professionals. 

An indication of the Club's commitment to Junior Golf is the selection of several boy and girl juniors to represent county teams across various age groups.


Currently, former junior member, Harry Hall - now 21 years old and having graduated from a golfing scholarship in the USA - represents England Men’s team. Prior to this, Harry represented the Cornwall County Men’s side and the England Golf under-16 and 18 teams whilst still a junior member. By 14 years of age, Harry achieved a scratch handicap and won the 2012 Cornwall Junior Championship at his home course, a title that he successfully defended in 2013 at St Austell GC. He has also won the prestigious Learmonth Bowl, West Cornwall's 36-hole Open Medal that attracts entries from all over the country.


Finally, we are one of the few Clubs in the County, if not the Country, with a thriving girl membership. Junior girls number almost 10 at present, ranging in ages from 7 to 17 and all levels of handicap.

We extend a warm welcome to you all. Golf really is a fantastic sport in which social skills and sporting excellence develop side-by-side. Please download the Junior Handbook for further information.
