Robert Rock Junior Academy / Award Programme
The Robert Rock Junior Academy are groups held on the weekend, organised by age and with up to 8 children in each group. These groups run parallel to the school terms for one hour per week.
Each junior is presented with a Robert Rock Award Booklet that they work from in the sessions. Consisting of 10 colour bands the booklet guides the junior from the basic fundamentals of the game through to playing successfully on the golf course.
A signed certificate from Robert Rock is awarded on completion of each colour band.
We are excited to announce that US Kids Golf will be sponsoring the Robert Rock Junior Golf Academy.
