Box of Tricks workshops return to help Junior Club Membership

After a successful series of workshops in 2018, Scottish Golf is pleased to confirm new dates for  Box of Tricks workshops available to all affiliated golf clubs in Scotland.

Developed by The Golf Foundation, the Box of Tricks outlines more than 40 practical ‘eureka moments’ in junior golf development, including fun game formats, inventive practice methods and ways to build course confidence, all within four categories of skill, play, social and marketing.

Scottish Golf is pleased to confirm a new list of free-to-attend Box of Tricks regional workshops across the country for 2019. They invite clubs to rate their current efforts – using golf scoring, of course – before breaking into workshops to devise future plans for their own club, inspired by the 40+ Box of Tricks ideas across the four categories.

The first workshop will take place at The Crichton Golf Club on Tuesday 15 October with further sessions scheduled to take place at venues across Scotland.

Gavin Forrester, Scottish Golf Junior Development Manager, said, “We are delighted to build on the success of last year’s Box of Tricks workshops following positive club engagement and feedback in 2018. These free-to-attend seminars at clubs across the country in the coming weeks will support clubs to recruit and retain junior members which is a key priority for Scottish Golf.

“Working in partnership with The Golf Foundation, the workshops are designed to help clubs and volunteers take a more innovative approach with engaging young people at their club, focusing on off-course and family activities to make the golf club a more attractive destination for a younger audience. We look forward to delivering the series of workshops again and hope to engage with many new clubs who didn’t get the opportunity to attend last year.”
