First Swing Golf Academy

Wales' largest Junior Golf Academy

Our nine hole academy course was opened in September 2014 with the aid of funding from Sport Wales. Membership of the course is from £29 a year and this gives access to weekly competitions and coaching groups.

Come along and have a free trial of the course before you commit to membership.

At Bryn Meadows our golfers follow a structured playing and coaching pathway which takes them from being complete beginners into accomplished golfers who can enter and play in full competitions. We currently offer 6 week blocks of coaching 42 weeks of the year.

The pathway is as follows:

Golf Tots Programme (3-5 year olds)

Our Tots Programme is based more on fun and learning than swing and golf coaching, many of these sessions will be based indoors and gives children a gentle introduction to the sport while maintaining their interest. 

Coach - PGA Professional Katy Edwards

First Swing Academy (6+)

This is our entry level golf coaching programme for children who are new to golf. Based on our academy course the children learn to play in a safe, controlled environment with their coaches and parents when playing in competitions. During this phase the children work their way through the golf foundation junior passport until they meet the required skill and score levels required to progress.

US Kids Learning Programme

This is aimed at children who are ready to take their first steps on to the main golf course. The US Kids programme allows the children to progress through three levels at a pace that suits them. The golf course is scaled so the children are playing an appropriate length course for their level of ability. This is essential to ensure that the children maintain interest and more importantly have fun and feel like they are improving.

Coach - PGA Professional David Pocock

Elite Junior Programme

This is designed for children who have handicaps and are serious at improving. These sessions will be primarily one to one coaching sessions

Ideal for those looking to get into the sport, as well as those looking to improve.
