The Development Academy is a stage in the pathway to progressing to the County coaching and teams.

Participation is based on attending our after school classes or individual lessons, becoming a member of a golf club, working towards gaining a handicap to enable play in competitions.  If you believe you qualify please contact us.

Juniors from Tickenham have progressed to Somerset County Development & Futures squads and subsequently into the U12, U14, U16 and U18 teams with many reducing handicaps to single figures.  A few of these juniors play for the over 18 County Teams and some have even turned Professional themselves.


Junior classes are held throughout the year during school term time, using the Golf Foundation passport Scheme. Our PGA Professionals take juniors as young as 4, both on the driving range and the course so they learn all aspects of the game. This has proved very popular. Please complete a registration form and email or bring it to the club so we can advise which class has spaces and its suitability.


The holiday Schools are held during school holidays.   The day will include instruction, games and if the weather allows, play on the course.  The day usually requires the children to have a packed lunch with them.  It is a fun filled day and extremely popular with the youngsters.  Please complete a registration form and email or bring it to the club as soon as the dates are announced.
