A regular Saturday morning feature at the Club is junior golf tuition for girls and boys. Mendip Spring is proud of its record of developing young golfers.

In 2011 the Club was awarded the prestigious GolfMark, a national scheme run by the English Golf Union that identifies and recognises junior and beginner-friendly clubs. Our commitment to young people and beginners is absolute and this Award is recognition of this fact. Any parent seeing the GolfMark symbol can be sure that the Club has a structured environment in which their child can develop as a player and person.

He prides himself on his ability to help players, of all levels understand the movements of their own individual swings, whether good or bad. This knowledge is how Scott separates himself from his fellow coaches.
