Welcome to the Golf Development Home Page
Golf is currently following the Govermenment's route-map through and out of the COVID-19 pandemic. The competitions and coaching that we normally offer are therefore postponed until further notice.
When possible our local clubs will be offering Safe Golf options over the coming weeks and months which will be delivered inline with Government guidance relating to covid.

We work with golf clubs and schools in East Lothian to ensure that golf is affordable and accessible for all children.
East Lothian is known as Scotlands Golf Coast providing lots of opportunities to play golf right on the doorstep across the authority.
We introduce over 1000 Primary 5 children every year to golf as part of their PE curriculum. Children can then sign up to affordable coaching at local clubs and continue to progress through the coaching pathway to the best of their ability.

Juniors are encouraged to play in as many fun competitions as they can to compliment their coaching. The competitions are played in a variety of formats and are open to players with or without handicaps. Some coaching or playing experience is required. Players receive points throughout the season in our East Lothian Junior Golf Order of Merit and the top 12 qualify for an end of season prize winners coaching clinic.
