Juniors in Adult Competitions
Glen Golf Club operate an open and inclusive policy in relation to its junior members. We recognise that the junior members are a key part of the future of the Club. The junior section organise a number of junior medals throughout the year as well as participating in the East Lothian junior golf league. We also recognise that there is a place for junior members participating in adult competitions, and this policy sets out our approach to this.
Juniors who have reached an acceptable standard of play and who have demonstrated that they can conduct themselves in an appropriate manner that is becoming of a member of the Glen Golf Club can be considered to participate in adult competitions and the Club Championship.
As a guiding principle, the Club would expect a junior member to have achieved a handicap of 18 (as an acceptable standard) or under to be eligible to apply to me as Junior Convenor for approval to play in adult competitions. Any current junior member who has already played in a Glen adult competition can consider themselves eligible for future adult competitions. Any junior member who has not already played in an adult competition, has achieved the handicap guide level (18) or below and wishes to do so should contact me for consideration.
Should the conduct of the junior fall below acceptable standards this privilege may be removed at the discretion of the Junior Convenor or Match Secretary.
Junior members may enter ordinary competitions online in the usual way in any time slots that are available at the time of entry. Juniors shall play for the main competition trophy and prize, the sweep and magic twos, on payment of the entry fee.
Eligible junior members shall be entitled to compete for the adult club championship relevant to their handicap category (and be entitled to receive the appropriate trophy and prize money), in addition to being able to compete for relevant junior championships
The Rhodes Golf Club has also agreed juniors may join for an annual entry fee of £10 and the same criteria as above applies in terms of eligibility and playing in Rhodes competitions.
The Juniors' Season Opener has been moved to Friday 27th March to avoid clashing with the Junior league match with Gullane on Sunday 29th March.
JUNIOR GOLF AT THE GLEN! Are you an aspiring junior golfer or an existing junior possibly looking looking for a new or second club. The Glen has been awarded the Junior Charter and recently published an updated Junior Golfing Strategy to promote the development of all junior golfers at The Glen.
We are able to play mat free golf all year at The Glen and we have introduced junior competitions throughout the year. A number of years ago we introduced short course (blue) tees which are suited to all developing golfers, including juniors. The Glen also offers subsidised coaching via a junior coaching levy paid by the adult membership.
If you are interested, have played some golf but more importantly understand what golf etiquette, including appropriate behaviour, is about we would like to hear from you.
If you are interested and would like more information please contact John Lunn, Junior Convenor, in the first instance. Contact details are provided below.
This page complements the Juniors' notice board, news letter pages and other means of communication. This means that you don't have to rely on this site for the latest information - always check the notice board in the clubhouse!
We try to keep this page fresh by constantly updating it with items of news, pictures etc. If you have an idea for an item to be published, contact the Junior Convenor.

ABOUT THE GLEN JUNIORS
We have approximately 40 junior members at the Glen Golf Club, ranging in age from 8 to 18.
There are numerous advantages to junior membership:
- year-round golf at very low cost
- on attaining the age of 18, juniors can 'upgrade' to full membership without the need to be proposed, seconded and go on the waiting list
- a full itinerary including medal competitions (stroke-play), Stableford (points per hole) and match-play competitions.
- a National Handicap gained by submitting scorecards from medal and Stableford competitions
- at the Glen we recognise the importance of providing golf tuition. From time to time we provide vouchers entitling junior members to free coaching.
- we are members of the East Lothian Junior League. Any junior can aspire to representing his club at this level by showing commitment, loyalty and a consistent (or, better still, consistently improving!) level of play.
THE JUNIOR CHARTER
In 2001 the Glen was awarded the Junior Charter (on view in the Clubhouse), a certificate that can only be achieved by providing an environment for the development of junior golf which meets very high standards.
