Junior Lessons

Our PGA qualified coach, Gareth Bailey, provides both individual tuition and group lessons for junior players. The individual coaching is tailored specifically for the pupil and is ideal for those youngsters who are developing swiftly or displaying good potential.

The group classes offer a greater variety of fun-based skills, with the topic changing from week to week. These classes are particular popular during the school holidays, when parents can leave their children, knowing they are enjoying themselves in a safe and friendly environment.

The following is a list of the courses available.

​Holiday Golf Camps

Here at Canterbury Golf Club we are dedicated to introducing the wonderful game of golf to as many people as possible, and we believe that the best place to start is with juniors. 

Therefore, every school holiday we provide introductory golf camps for kids of all ages and abilities. These are run under the direction of specialist professional Gareth Bailey.

We focus on introducing every aspect of golf from chipping and putting, to bunker play and driving, supporting your child through the start of their golfing career. We believe that the skills learned in training need to be put into practice in a real environment, therefore we also provide your children with the opportunity to play the stunning Canterbury Golf Club under supervision at no extra cost!

More information:

The camps run from 10am through to 4pm Monday to Friday with a minimum of 5 children per group.
