Quotes from our Winners
Rose Britt - 2018 Scholarship Winner"I have had great benefit from the scholarship because it has not only made my golf better but it has given me the confidence to play in more tournaments and be more involved in local golf. The facilities at Ballarat Golf Club have been great for my practice and I'm sure any junior would benefit from the facilities at Ballarat Golf Club. The inside the ropes experience at The Vic Open gave me a real insight into how a professional goes about their game.
The highlights for me have been firstly winning the scholarship but what I enjoyed the most was the Vic Open and meeting Minjee Lee. I also really enjoyed the day at the PGA Learning Centre.
The scholarship has really benefited my game both mentally and physically. It has enabled me to have more confidence as a junior girl golfer and given me the skills I need to become better. Also the practice facilities at BGC have been great for me to improve my game and I have reduced my handicap by 9 shots since winning the scholarship.
I am very thankful for the opportunity I have had to be the recipient of the scholarship. I am excited that another person may get an opportunity like me and I hope they enjoy and appreciate it as much as I have."
Thank you so much for choosing me. And thank you Ballarat Golf Club.
Travis Britt - Father of Rose"The real benefit to Rose in winning the scholarship was the confidence it gave her to believe in herself and her game. At the time of the application Rose's handicap was 23. In the last seven months her handicap has reduced by 9 shots now playing off 14 with her goal of being a single figure handicapper just 5 shots away. I'm sure this is a direct result of the confidence that came from winning the scholarship and her dedication to make the most of this opportunity.
" I believe that right now Junior Golf in Ballarat is quite strong and to be able to nurture and help our juniors grow is important to Ballarat and the game of golf. I would encourage any juniors from any club to try out for the scholarship. Not only for the purpose of having the opportunities that Rose has been given but to also use it as an opportunity to look at their golf game and ask themselves about their future goals and aspirations."
Gabby Howlett - Mother of Finalist Liam Howlett"Liam had such a sense of achievement of being recognised as a Finalist. He felt very proud and it gave him confidence in his game and working towards his golf goals. The reward of winning his yearly membership and also the driving range membership provided a huge financial benefit to our family, it also allowed Liam to have both of these memberships in the 2018 year which in turn has helped his participation of golf. Being a finalist has allowed Liam to feel very included in the Ballarat Golf Club community and also a sense of pride of the club and himself. Overall Liam has really benefited from being a finalists in the Scholarship, it has given him confidence and made him focus on his golf and what the future holds. It has also amongst his peer group provided him with recognition and increased the profile of Ballarat Golf Club as supporting juniors."
