We are committed to developing and nurturing our junior golfers and currently have a healthy junior section comprising boys and girls aged 12-18 with a wide range of golfing abilities from complete novice to category one golfers.
Junior membership at La Moye has two distinct pathways. Children or Grandchildren of existing Full Members may join the Club at any point from age 12 up to the age of 18. We also have a Junior Special Entry Scheme to allow keen and talented junior golfers to join our Club. A copy of the criteria for Special Entry Membership can be viewed by clicking on the link below.
Our PGA qualified coaching team of Mike Lavers, Rory Dervin and Harry Harwood are experienced in developing young golfers through their specially designed coaching programmes. It is this knowledge and a commitment to helping our juniors that makes La Moye stand out from the vast majority of clubs. Over the years a number of La Moye Juniors have gone on to represent Hampshire County, indeed one of our current junior girls is a Hampshire Girls squad member.
Throughout each year, juniors can get involved in an array of competitions and events designed to help build a golfing community and help them get as much enjoyment as possible from their Club membership.
Skills days are run periodically during school holidays throughout the year. These extremely popular days are designed to test every element of a player’s game with a variety of short game and long game challenges set in the morning followed by a handicap qualifying golf competition in the afternoon. Players can earn academy cup points by taking part in skills days and trying to improve their scores in each of the different the skills tests.
Please check the club’s calendar for upcoming dates.
Junior clinics are run on a bi-weekly basis by our coaches. The clinics are designed to develop skills in every area of the game while also focussing on elements that may have proved challenging during skills days. The clinics are kept to small groups and are split by age and ability to encourage improvement and enjoyment for both our newer and more experienced golfers.
Individual coaching sessions are also available for junior golfers, with further details available by contacting +44 (1534) 743130 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Golf Academy is extremely fortunate to have the skills of the following very highly regarded professionals:
Mike represented Devon County at Junior and Senior level, holding course records and Club Championships at both clubs while still an amateur.
Mike turned Pro in 2002, and played full time while living for 3 years in Australia. He has held 3 course records worldwide before returning to Jersey in 2010 where he joined La Moye. Mike took on the role of Head Professional at La Moye in July 2018.
Rory joined the professional team at La Moye Golf Club in March 2015, after spending a successful 6 years as Head Assistant at Balbriggan GC, Dublin, Ireland.
During his time there, he developed a large client base and Junior section, with a number of students progressing to county and national level.
Rory has worked with golfers of all ages and experience levels, and strives to help each student improve their individual golf swing to increase power, accuracy and consistency.
Harry joined the team in May 2019 and is working to establish his groups of young Juniors in the academy. Also a keen player, he is getting to know his way around our beautiful links.
The Club’s belief is that junior golf should be inclusive with the opportunity for those that want to excel, to do so. The Club prides itself on creating fun and enjoyment for everyone and welcomes juniors of all ability and experience levels to our programmes.
