Ascot Golf Tours, South Africa’s premier golf tour operator, for the last 18 years, have formed an alliance with McKinlay Golf who are the leaders in Junior Golf Tuition in South Africa. The alliance is designed to maximise the marketing reach and expertise of Ascot Golf with the world class programs on offer by McKinlay Golf, who are based at the Fancourt Golf Academy in George, South Africa. Adam McKinlay has combined the very best of junior coaching programs on offer to create a enjoyable and challenging program for junior golfers.
The focus is on having fun and showing kids that golf is an exciting game and measuring their improvements via a number of preset activities.
The world class facilities at Fancourt are the perfect setting for the program and it has been set out to cater for junior golfers of all abilities. As they move through the program they are rewarded along the way and the further they are able to go the higher the reward. Those junior golfers that have what it takes to potentially make a living out of the game and have completed the program to the highest level will receive a full equipment sponsorship from Taylor-made Golf! Completing the program requires dedication and long hours but a junior golfer wanting to just learn how to play or to improve their game to a level of being competitive will find the program equally rewarding.
The intention is to combine a holiday to the beautiful Garden Route with the opportunity to learn the game of golf or simply get better at the great game. The programs are also available for adult golfers and so the whole family can enjoy a holiday while improving their golf at the same time. “Its not just about the Swing” comments Adam McKinlay, “ its about making the game fun and ensuring that everyone understands their limitations and maximises their ability based on these limitations. The program is designed to be driven by the golfer, at their own speed and we are there to assist as and when required.”
“When you combine the great weather, sight-seeing activities, quality of the golf courses and facilities, with the low cost you can understand why we are so excited about this alliance and why we feel its something that has been required for many years! Ascot is the leader in golf travel and McKinlay is the leader in coaching so its a perfect match,” said Scott Edkins, Managing Director of Ascot Golf.
