Scottish Golf joins forces with PGA to host Regional Junior Forums

As part of Scottish Golf’s plans to develop a new National Junior Framework, the national governing body is delighted to announce that it will be staging a series of regional forums across the country in partnership with the PGA. These events will not only allow Scottish Golf to gather valuable insights from those currently involved on the front line in junior golf, but will also provide PGA professionals, junior convenors and other volunteers engaged in junior golf activity to work collaboratively with Scottish Golf’s Development Team on the new framework.

Led by Scottish Golf’s Junior Development Manager, Gavin Forrester and Allan Martin, Coach Education Manager for the PGA in Scotland, the forums will provide attendees an opportunity to provide feedback on a range of key topics, including coaching, competitions, club support and schools delivery, through interactive workshops and discussion. The forums will give also delegates the opportunity to share best practice and input into some new concepts, helping to ensure that the framework works for everyone involved.

Ross Duncan, Development Director at Scottish Golf, is looking forward to the upcoming forums and said: “We are delighted to be joining forces with the PGA to stage these forums across the country and it is vitally important that we get the views and insights of PGA professionals, junior convenors and others involved in running junior golf activity. By working with these key stakeholders, it will help shape our future framework. We hope the forums will attract good numbers, inspire good debate and encourage the sharing of good practice from some of the fantastic work being done by many different parties.”
