Welcome to our Juniors’ Section, come and join us
Lancashire Union of Golf Clubs has recognised Rossendale Golf Club as having “the best Junior Section” throughout the whole of Lancashire. In the last season (2017) four of the Juniors represented Lancashire; for two years consecutively the junior team have represented Lancashire at the England Golf Junior Club of the Year Championships at Woodhall Spa, the home of England golf. This is a real measure of success of our Junior Section.
If you have a young child who you would like to see succeed in a fascinating sport, then join them to Rossendale and watch as they progress at their own pace working with excellent coaches to develop their game. We create opportunities for young people of any age, gender or background to participate in golf in a safe and friendly environment.
