Some golfers play a lifetime without making a hole-in-one but 11-year-old Bailey Wilson needed only to attend the Down Royal Junior Golf Academy to achieve his.
The remarkable feat occurred when the Primary 7 Dromore Central pupil was attending the Sunday morning Golf Academy group lessons coached by PGA Golf Pro Dougie Bell. The junior golfer had been showing great potential during the junior golf development sessions and the hole-in-one occurred just two weeks into the November group lessons.
Commenting on the young golfer’s achievement, PGA coach Dougie Bell said, “Bailey’s hole-in-one was fantastic, he had been making great progress during the development sessions and the whole group was ecstatic when it happened! Its really inspired the group and who knows, maybe Northern Ireland’s next golfing superstar will be from our academy! Its superb to see the interest in junior golf within the area and the demand to continually run 6 week golf schools throughout the year.”
The Junior Golf Academy at Down Royal Park Golf Course offers a range of coaching options including the 6 week junior golf school and individual golf coaching for beginners and improvers aimed at both juniors and adults. There are no barriers to getting into golf and at Down Royal we offer competitively priced packages as well as progression routes from the Meadows Course to the 9 Hole Valley Course before attempting the strategically placed hazards the 18 hole Classic Course has to offer.
The golf facility is open to the public 7 days a week, the next Junior Golf Academy will take place on Sunday 11th January 2015 10am-11am. For further enquiries please contact us on 028 9262 1339 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Christmas vouchers are also available.
