Skibbereen Programmes

Skibb Kidz Academy

Sarah delivers a 10-week coaching programme for local children that covers all aspects of the game of golf. The goal is to get the children out playing golf on the course as soon as they are able. The programme is fun and mindful of age so the skills taught will vary depending on the age group Sarah is working with. Sarah and all the volunteers at the golf club have completed the CGI child welfare and protection course and are all Garda vetted.

Sarah starts each lesson with a safety drill to make sure all children are aware of keeping each other safe and what to do if someone shouts “FORE”!

Aspects covered:

  1. Fun games for learning and understanding
  2. Golf techniques for all areas of the game from long game to putting
  3. Etiquette and rules
  4. Use of equipment
  5. Safety drills
  6. Playing the course under supervision
  7. Player of the lesson “badge” awarded for good behaviour and effort
