Junior Section

Junior Section

We have a growing junior section with a tradition of providing a friendly, relaxed and welcoming environment for girls and boys of all ages to learn and play golf.  We recognise the importance of juniors in the continuous lifecycle of the club.  We therefore place a great deal of importance in the structure, development and the organisation of the junior section. The junior section is led by the junior convenor with support from parents and committee members.


Our aim is that juniors enjoy their golf, but most of all enjoy being a part of Cupar Golf Club.  The aim of the junior section is to provide a fun environment to experience golf, to give juniors the opportunity to progress to their potential and to equip them with golf skills that can be used and enjoyed for the rest of their lives.

Competitions and Handicaps

Competitions take place on various Sunday afternoons throughout the summer season.  These comprise of 4 holes for new and younger players before progression to one of the 9 hole formats.   On occasions, different golf formats such as team or pairs golf will take place to allow junior to expand their golf experience.

Adults are encouraged to accompany young children to help them on their way round.  Those adults with golfing knowledge are encouraged to advise about golf etiquette and rules information to our junior members.

We arrange club handicaps so young players can measure their improvement and everyone has a chance of picking up a prize.  Juniors can then progress to obtain a WHS index.
