Junior Section

Our Junior section normally numbers about 50 members up to the age of 18 and has a reputation for producing some outstanding performers in Hertfordshire.

In December 2003, Harpenden Common Golf Club was accredited with the Junior Golf mark in recognition of the Club’s exceptional performance and commitment to Junior Golf and we were the first club in Hertfordshire to receive this award. In September 2009, we were awarded the Junior Golf Mark Sport England award which continues to this day. Many of our young golfers have been with the Club from 8/12 years old and many continue their membership into adulthood. Their achievements reflect the excellent lessons and coaching of our dedicated professional as well as the commitment of both adult and junior committee members. All junior committee members are DBS checked as a matter of course and we have a Child Protection Officer to safeguard the interests of the juniors.

As a member of the Herts Golf Union, our youngsters take part in County matches, monthly club competitions and annual County competitions. We also compete in the South West Herts league and the Ver Junior league. We hold a very well-supported Open Day for boys and girls to compete in each year. We are totally committed within the Club and County to boys and girls squad training and the development of our younger golfers.

The Club’s Honours boards reflect our excellent performance in major junior events nationally and internationally as well as other representative competitions. Tom Brown and Marcus Fox were very successful juniors at the Club before taking up golf scholarships in America. They won many prestigious trophies and competitions whilst juniors at the Common. Sam Claridge, another junior to come through our ranks, has won numerous County and Club honours and was part of the England squad. Sam currently holds the course record at both Harpenden Common and Berkhamsted.

As a Club, we are very proud of our juniors and young adults who have all taken advantage of our extremely competitive junior membership fees as well as the County subsidised tuition fees.
