Radio Stoke Interview

June 2017 Radio Stoke interviews Ashley Salt, Club Professional about golf participation, in particular, how Trentham Golf Club attracts and retains Junior Golfers!

Trentham Junior Member Group Lessons:

For Juniors who are Members of Trentham Golf Club, a part of the Junior Subscription is budgeted to subsidise junior group lessons, to encourage participation/improvement/competitive golf!

The Junior Members are split into 3 sections’:-

  • The Academy Group (Beginner Group)

  • The Development Group (Mid-Handicappers)

  • The Advanced Group (lower Handicappers)

1. Each week a 1.5 hour (90 minute session) is put on for one of the above Groups, i.e. week 1 The Academy Group, week 2 The Development Group and Week 3 The Advanced Group, i.e. every 3 weeks EACH JUNIOR GROUP RECEIVES a 90 minute coaching session.

2. Junior Member Sessions are ran jointly by Ashley Salt and Daniel Hewitt together (2 x golf Professionals coaching all groups),

3. Tuesday evening Coaching Sessions/Practice/Playing Few Holes ran by Daniel Hewitt.

4. Our aim is to make the sessions:
a) Fun,
b) Structured,
c) Measured (by using drills),
d) Competitive,
e) Encourage the juniors to take notes on any technical changes, in order to work on developing their own games

Also for the advanced players the Pro Staff encourage one on one lessons, with the option for the most advanced juniors to develop through the County/England Golf pathways.

Outstanding Achievement: "Congratulations to Trentham's very own Alfie Turner":

The IMG Academy Junior World Championships is a prestigious tournament with over 1300 of the best junior golfers from over 50 countries worldwide, all trying to win their age category.

Founded in 1968, previous winners include Tiger Woods, Phil Mickleson, and Ernie Els, to name just a few.

Alfie Turner, turned in a dominant display that saw him claim a 6-shot victory in his division after a near faultless display ended with a total of 75. Alfie will head off to San Diego in the summer to aim to bring back the World Title – we wish him every success! After winning the tournament, Alfie said, 'I enjoyed competing in the qualifier and I’m really excited to be going to San Diego, to compete against golfers from all over the world.'"
