U12s & Hub Centres
Our mission is to develop a network of Hub Centres that prepare young golfers in all disciplines to be able to compete at the very highest standard of amateur golf. The Hub Centres are the first stage of the BB&O Performance pyramid and we are looking for golfers U12 on 1st January who have a passion to improve their golf to apply to become a Scholar.
In addtion to Hub Centres we offer competitive playing oppertunites for U12 in either the Development Tour for boys who have a handicap of 24.1 or higher. For boys who have handicaps of 24.0 or under we have The Futures Tour. More details on both Tours can be found clicking here.
What is a Hub Centre?
A Hub Centre is an affiliated golf club that has been approved by BB&O Golf because of its excellent facilities, location and environment that enables junior golf to flourish. A Hub Centre has at least one PGA Coach attached to it who can provide expert tuition and has a previous track record of producing talent particularly in the U12 age group.
