About the Junior Academy:

Blackwell Grange Junior Golf Academy is a modern golf club providing specialist golf development using technology to develop the juniors of today.  Our vision is to be the leading Junior Academy in the North Region of England for juniors of all ages, abilities and from all areas in the north. 

We have developed a facility with a full championship golf course, full 280-yard driving range, 90-yard short game area with putting and chipping areas.  The Blackwell Grange Junior Academy provides PGA Professional instruction with a 7-stage learning process utilising the Junior Development book to nurture the juniors.

To offer this opportunity to local kids in the north region to join a group of likeminded junior golfers and to create an atmosphere where the juniors are the leaders of the academy.

Junior Academy Development

The junior academy sorts to deliver professional and structured golf tuition to increase the knowledge of all facets of the game.  Introducing fitness, wellbeing into their lives will increase effort and participation.  Learning the fundamentals and moving onto playing the game will be the back bone of what the Blackwell Grange Junior Academy want to achieve.  Giving the opportunity to juniors to join the club and be a part of a golf club with a Championship golf course to continue improving will make it an easier road of development.

PGA Professional Aaron Cox has created a Junior Development Book which takes kids through a 7-stage process of learning the game of golf, from developing skills, challenges, behaviour, mental aspects, fitness challenges.  All these facets of golf will in turn with tuition increase their knowledge of the game and their swings. 

Teaching Juniors all ages from 6-15 years we have classes for the youngsters and have classes for the older juniors working specifically on technique and game thoughts.  Teaching the young kids in a fun and safe environment is number one, with the kids learning the fundamentals of the game – Grip, Aim, Stance and Posture with learning shots like chipping, putting, irons and driving.

The older juniors from 10 years on wards learning more about technique aspects – from takeaway, upswing, downswing and follow through.  Being able to create different ball flights and create shots in their mind in practice to create the same shots on the course.

The classes will cover all aspects of the game – from using the Driving range for all long game including driving, fairway woods and iron play.  The use of Flight scope Launch monitor will then teach the kids about launch angles and spin rates, understanding the 9 ball flight laws and swing components.
