As part of the National Junior Framework, Scottish Golf has invested in a new Roving Pro Fund to support Clubs and Facilities that do not have access to a PGA professional. The funding will allow those clubs to pay a qualified PGA professional to deliver junior and adult beginner coaching programmes, to improve the quality of coaching on offer at your club and to help you recruit and retain more members. The Roving Pro model has been by clubs across Scotland, many in more remote areas, to help build up successful junior and Get into Golf programmes.
The Roving Pro Fund will enable clubs to apply for a maximum of £600, which can be used to deliver up to 20 hours of PGA Professional coaching. Additional funding is also available for Clubs identified in more remote and rural areas of the country, to cover travel and/or accommodation costs of their Pro.
To start the application process, Clubs are required to meet with your Regional Club Development Officer to discuss plans for your Junior and/or adult beginner coaching programme. This will help identify your specific requirements and explore what arrangements will be required with the respective PGA professional, aligned to your current volunteer coaching workforce.
