Welcome to our Juniors Section…
RGC’s Junior Section is one of the most successful and thriving junior sections in Lancashire, and is working to provide an environment where junior golfers can develop their golfing ability at their own pace.
We want to create opportunities for young people of any age, gender or background to participate in golf in a safe and friendly environment.
We have a range of competitions throughout the season and also provide opportunities for those without handicaps to take part. The tee is reserved for juniors late afternoon on Monday, once per fortnight, to allow for competitions, practice and development.
We have a number of opportunities for juniors to play for teams and we are entered in a number of leagues. We also encourage and support juniors to play at a higher level and have been successful in having our juniors represent Lancashire.

Learn to play & Coaching
Learn to play: We offer a try golf programme for juniors starting out in the game and use the Golf Foundation junior passport to support progress.
Coaching: we provide regular coaching opportunities including summer camps, and an extensive winter programme at Rossendale Driving Range
Golf Mark Award
We have held the prestigious Golf Mark award since 2010 and were assessed at High Achiever status at the outset. This ensures we have the right policies and procedures in place to safeguard young people at the club (please see the junior policies and procedures on the Governance Page, which also includes our club Safeguarding policy.)
