Canterbury has a vibrant Juniors' Section that is going from strength to strength under the guidance of junior organiser Chris Wallis and Kent Golf Academy coach Gareth Bailey, who is the professional responsible for tutoring and developing the club's youngsters.
Chris is assistant vice-principal, teaching and learning and elite sporting academies, at the Spires Academy, Sturry, where he created and has managed the Elite Golf Academy at Spires.
Chris has brought with him to Canterbury a record of success achieved at the Elite Academy with players gaining county selection and being selected to represent Kent Schools.
At Canterbury Golf Club, Chris organises a programme of friendly and league matches against other clubs for members of the Juniors' Section.
PGA-qualified Gareth has 20 years’ experience as a golf instructor and organises individual tuition and group lessons for juniors. Individual coaching is available for youngsters who are developing swiftly or displaying exceptional potential, while the group classes provide a greater variety of fun-based skills, with the topic changing from week to week.
Such classes are in particular demand during the school holidays, when parents can leave their children to enjoy themselves in a safe and friendly environment.
