Coaching Scheme

All the professional golfers involved with planning and running coaching sessions for CAGU are PGA qualified. Occasionally, professionals and experts from other areas will be called upon to give help and advice to our squads. Our coaches are also attending the matches/events that the boys compete in, giving the boys access to professional help and advice in a competitive environment.

Cambridgeshire Junior golf coaching is led by Ben Kerr, who is assisted by a team of professionals in Aaron Jones, Jonny Sharkey, Adam Pike and Matt Leach. During this 2019-20 coaching season all three squads will have three county squad training sessions. Details below:

Under 18 squad

1st November 202012:00pm – 2:00pmRoyal Worlington GC
22nd November 202012:00pm – 2:00pmRoyal Worlington GC

The team is led and selected by David Gamble and PGA Professional Ben Kerr.

The Under 18 team compete in the East Midland U18 League, the England Golf Boys County Championship and the Anglian League.

The boys get a great opportunity to gain useful matchplay experience that will help strengthen the quality of the men’s teams that the County are able to field in future years.

Many of those who have played for the Boys Team in the past have gone on to play for the men’s A or B County Teams.

Under 16/14s Squad

31st October 202012:00pm – 2:00pmThorpe Wood GC
28th November 202012:00pm – 2:00pmThorpe Wood GC

The team is led and selected by Nigel Plumb, Paul Toyer and PGA Professionals Aaron Jones and Jonny Sharkey. The players in this combined squad have an opportunity to gain useful matchplay experience before going into the U18 Boys Squad and it is this progression through the teams, that will help strengthen the quality of the teams Cambridgeshire are able to field in future years.

Boys from this squad will occasionally be selected for U18 matches if they have shown excellent commitment, progression and form. Age is no barrier in CAGU. We feel if the player is good enough, then they are old enough.

15th November 202012:00pm – 2:00pmBrampton Park GC

The team is led and selected by Garry Kerr and PGA Professional Adam Pike, assisted by PGA Professional Matt Leach. The Under 12 players will gain useful golfing experience to help them with their progression through the age group squads and ultimately into men’s golf. Age is not a barrier in CAGU. Our PGA coaches are closely monitoring the progression, so if we feel a player is ready and able to play in an age group above, then we will move them up.
