Golf development in Midlothian is delivered through the ScottishGolf national programmes.
Scottish Golf offers children a structured programme which supports their early development as golfers and aligned to Scottish Golf's Player Pathway, ensuring opportunities for talented players to progress further based on their potential, commitment and achievement.
The introductory programme is now well established across the country, and provides children with an opportunity to experience golf in Primary School.
Active Schools Coordinators are responsible for training teachers and volunteers and arranging the delivery timeframe in the schools by liaising with the local golf club.
Participating children will expect to learn some basic golfing concepts and terminology. They will receive a positive first experience of golf, and an opportunity to progress on to aStage 1 programme at a local golf club or facility.
At present Broomieknowe Golf Club, Melville Golf Centre, Kings Acre Golf Club& Glencorse Golf Club all link with Midlothian schools to offer an exit route through a school-club link.
