The Bermuda Golf Association announced today that the 2021 junior programme will commence with an assessment day at Port Royal Golf Course open to youth players between the ages of 5 and 18 on March 13.

The skill assessment will be mandatory for children wishing to participate in the BGA’s junior programme, irrespective of any previous involvement with the programme.

Golf clubs are not a requirement to attend, while those interested have been urged to RSVP to juniors@bermudagolf.org to reserve a spot.

The assessment day is free of charge and will be run in compliance with the Government’s Covid-19 guidelines, with a maximum in each age group.

Craig Brown, the BGA president, said: “We are excited to enter a new chapter for junior golf in Bermuda.

“The assessment day allows us to work with our industry stakeholders the Bermuda Professional Golfers Association, and will provide useful benchmarking data on skill level and physical abilities.

“The data will allow us to assign a junior golfer to the most appropriate golf development pathway for their age, gender and skill set.”

Brown added: “Our new junior golf programme forms part of the BGA's strategic plan — 'Birth to Podium' — and is based on the scientific principles of Long-Term Athlete Development with clearly defined pathways for the physical, mental, and emotional development of each junior golfer.”
