The junior section at Hinckley Golf Club offers juniors of all abilities the chance to participate in club events. There
are numerous junior competitions throughout the season for those with and those without handicaps, along with organised social junior golf where you can build long lasting friendships.
For beginners, we encourage participation in our Hotshots competitions, which gives those new to the game a chance to play on the course and challenge themselves.
Hinckley provides an idyllic environment for juniors to safely develop their skills with a long game practice area, short game area and a two tiered putting green.Many of the Leicestershire County junior representative players have been produced at Hinckley (both of Anthony’s assistants came through the junior ranks at Hinckley!).
There has been a growing realisation in recent times that golfing tuition ought to go hand-in-hand with equipmentthat allows each player to make the absolute utmost of whatever level of natural talent they possess. Clubs merely bought off the shelf are of a standard specification but of course golfers are not! A golfer could have a perfectly acceptable technique, but still be held back because their clbs are not entirely suitable to their swing.
This is where custom fitting comes in, allowing a set of clubs to marry with each golfer’s individual physique and swing characteristics.
Custom fitting is something that we take seriously at Hinckley Golf Club, offering a full and extensive range of products all available for custom fitting.
This service costs less than you'd think and can bring about a dramatic improvement in ball striking -- it all adds up to the correct impact position and better scores.
At Hinckley Golf Club we boast a number of areas where you will find our members diligently working on improving their game.
The most noticeable is our driving range located adjacent to the second tee, which gives golfers the opportunity to hit some full length shots and see the ball flight before they head onto the course.
The more intricate parts of the game are also catered for, with a fine practice putting green mirroring the fine surfaces found out on the course, and a great meeting point located next to our clubhouse.
In addition to our driving range and putting green, we are very lucky to have a short game area, bunkers, and, for those who find time is at a premium, there are practice nets that afford the opportunity to get loose before beginning your round.
