Junior Golf Clinics

We offer a structured Junior Program for juniors aged 8-16 incorporating all playing experience. We pride ourselves in the development of juniors in the game of golf and also in their personal development as we believe golf is one of the great activities for juniors to be participating in. Golf teaches many life skills, how many sports teach kids etiquette and how to keep their own score with the upmost of honesty even having to call penalties on themselves if breaches of the rules are incurred?

We offer Junior Clinics for Boys, Girls and Mixed. These operate on Monday and Wednesday nights and are also offered on a Saturday afternoon.
We structure the programs to coincide with the school terms offering programs in the 1st, 2nd and 4th terms. These programs include Full Swing Irons, Full Swing Woods, Putting, Chipping, Pitching, Bunkers, Rules and Etiquette. We also get out on the Golf Course regularly to advise on Course Management.

We also offer School Holiday Junior Programs. It is best to call the Pro Shop prior to the School Holidays as these Programs change depending on the holiday period, weather, numbers etc.

Please call to register your child early as spots are limited and class sizes range from only 8-10 students per professional depending on the age of the juniors in each of the clinics.

Women Golf Clinics

The most popular of all our Clinic Programs are our Beginner Ladies Clinics. It might be the Coffee and Cake we offer at the conclusion of our morning Clinics or the Wine and Cheese at the conclusion of our evening classes. We often joke that the ladies just come along to the clinics for the free Wine and Cheese and the opportunity to meet new people and laugh together as they try to learn the game.

As you can see it’s a very relaxed atmosphere and no better way to see whether the game of golf is for you. Most often it is. If your husband or partner has been encouraging you to take up the game come along to one of our programs and see for yourself why so many people get hooked on this great game.

We run Clinics starting in early February and October each year coinciding with the beginning of the 1st and 4th school terms.

Clinics begin with Putting where we provide you with a free Putter custom fit for you to get you going. From there we move on to Chipping, Pitching, Irons, Woods and then onto the golf course to give you the confidence to get out there once the clinics have concluded.

As you can see it’s a great program and one which you will need to register for early as class sizes are limited to 1 professional to 10 students.
