Information for Junior Members & Parents
At CCC we are aware that not all parents and juniors will be familiar with the logistics involved for getting out of the course and integrating into the community. Below are some basic guidelines and useful email contacts.
Playing the course
To play the course you need to book a tee time. We use a system called ESP. The named parent should have been sent a login credentials. Please check you email (including spam). If you have not received these login credentials, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Supervised and unsupervised playing
Juniors can play the course with their parents as long as their parents are aware of basic golf etiquette to ensure that pace of play is maintained. If a parent is unsure of the etiquette they can ask for help from one of our PGA Professionals who will happily have an informal conversation with them to put them at ease.
A junior can play unsupervised if they are
- 14 years old and with a handicap they have secured from the red, yellow or white tees OR;
- Under 14 years old with a handicap they have secured from the red, yellow or white tees but accompanied by someone who is 14 years or older and with permission from the under 14 year olds parent OR;
- With permission from one of our PGA Professionals
For help or assistance from one of PGA Professionals email email@example.com
Finding other junior playing partners
Making golf friends requires a little bit of effort on the part of the junior and improving socialisation skills is one of the many wonderful life skills we believe golf teaches. A junior can make golf friends by:
- Attending Stags coaching sessions and then asking their parents to exchange contact details
- Attending junior competitions, where they may be drawn with juniors they do not know
- The parent can complete the form below. This will then give them access to the contact details of other parents who have also completed the form.

Getting a handicap
To get a handicap a junior must complete 54 holes. This can be completed in blocks of 9 holes and/or 18 holes. A scorecard must be marked by someone responsible, eg a parent or another adult or a fellow junior who has the requisite knowledge and understanding. When the junior has obtained the required number of scorecards they then post them in the handicap box in the spikes bar. The handicap secretary will then collect the cards and give the junior a handicap. Once a junior has a handicap they will be able to register for competitions and track progress using an app called HowDidIDo (HDID).
For further advice on handicaps you can email our handicap secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org
Playing in competitions
Juniors cannot play in adult competitions until they have a handicap they have obtained from the red, yellow or white tees. Entry to adult competitions is through HDID.
Juniors can play junior competitions whether or not they have a handicap. If they do not have a handicap then the competition round will be one of the contributing cards. As they cannot enter a competition on HDID without a handicap they do so by contacting the Pro Shop. We would also ask juniors who do have a handicap to contact the Pro Shop so we can keep track of tee time allocations.
When are the competitions?
All competitions can be accessed via HDID. If you have not got a handicap, you cannot access Club V1 so you will need to email the Pro Shop at email@example.com and will give you the dates.
Once a junior obtains a handicap they will also be able to see upcoming competitions through HDID. For further questions about competitions please email our competition secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org
