At full development of Castiglion del Bosco Golf Club and all its facilities, Castiglion del Bosco will be keen to encourage the development of our younger golfers, both in their proficiency in striking the ball and their knowledge of the time-honoured etiquette associated with playing the game.
Juniors (ages 6 – 11) Must be accompanied by a parent at all times, and a parent may not supervise more than one junior at a time (i.e. one parent per junior). Access to the practice facilities and golf course will be on a limited basis and only after assessment by the golf professional and with prior permission of the director of golf and must be supervised by a member of staff.
Cadets (ages 12 -18) Rules as for juniors apply until such time as the cadet has passed 'The Cadet Knowledge and Proficiency Test'. Cadets who have passed the test may play the course – with prior permission from the director of golf unaccompanied by a parent, either alone or with a fellow cadet who has also passed the test.
