Junior Section

Welcome to Stoke by Nayland Junior Section where we strive to achieve the mission statement:-

"Dedicated to promoting golf at all levels, in a fun and safe environment"
Stoke by Nayland has two 18 holes courses, an excellent clubhouse, coaching and practice facilities.

There are a range of junior competitions to enter for all ability levels, some you do not even need an official handicap for! Competitions are run from the February half term through to the October half term, this years competition dates can be found on the diary tab and there is a copy on the junior noticeboard in the corridor outside the Proshop. Sign up sheets will go up on the board for each competition as they come around. From the first Thursday in May to the first Thursday in September Jun-Ads also runs which is a weekly 9 hole ‘roll up’ for any junior whether they are a member or not alongside a parent or adult member. So a great chance to bring along a friend or parent all for just £1.50 a week! The junior section also funds an annual away day and have played at Sprowston Manor, Stisted and Southwold in recent years.

The Junior Section has achieved much success over the years in county and national competitions winning the National Team Championship in La Manga in 2005. We are a part of the Essex golf union entering teams into the Youth Shield, Faldo Wedge and scratch foursomes competitions each year as well as encouraging our juniors to play in Junior Opens and other EGU junior competitions. Our own Junior Open is held during the Easter holidays and proves very popular, we had 80 juniors from all over the East of England in 2018!

We pride ourselves on having a very friendly and welcoming junior section where you will always find a willing playing partner! In particular if you are stuck or unsure then please ask after Justin Toombs (Junior Organiser), Harry English (Junior Captain 2019) or Nathan Thompson (Junior Vice Captain 2019).
