Our Junior Development Program offers a variety of class timings, to allow parents to find a suitable time for their kids to attend.
Our 4 junior levels are:
Active Start (Aged 3-5)
For our youngest juniors, this is their opportunity to try golf, with a focus on creating their fundamental movement skills first.
Fundamentals (Aged 5-9)
Juniors will learn and develop both fundamental movement and sports skills as well as golf skills in a fun and safe environment.
Course Ready (Aged 8-13)
During this stage there will be a huge emphasis on developing golf skill acquisition. In support, the juniors will learn more of the on course playing requirements such as rules and etiquette.
Tournament Ready (Aged 10-16)
Juniors in this group are likely to be playing on course regular and some even competitively so we add performance based training to the program.
Learning the technique of a golf swing or a putting stroke is only a small part when you look at the skills required to successfully play the game of golf. We fully understand this and each week we offer two additional classes which are free for your juniors to attend.
Thursday practice is when our juniors have the opportunity to come to the range, hit some balls, and work on what they had learned during their coaching session.
This will run from 5pm - 7pm at The Els Club side of the range at no additional cost. We don't have coaches on hand for this session so Parents are requested to attend practice at all times, and registration through our reception is essential.
KIDS ON COURSE
PLAY is a word that can be often overlooked when it comes to juniors taking up the game of golf. However, in our view playing on the golf course is probably the single most important part of not only developing their skills and teaching them the game but also for sparking their long term enjoyment and love for the sport.
Each week our juniors will take the golf course to test their skills and put into practice what they have done in their classes and practice sessions. For fundamentals, they will play a 5 hole shortened par 3 course and for the course ready groups and above they will take on the main course off distance appropriate tees.
For juniors to participate in kids on the course we require they have their own set of golf clubs, golf balls and have reached the necessary on course ability level to participate. They are assessed by their coach during regular sessions prior to commencing their first on course session. Booking is essential each week to attend kids on course which must be done a minimum of 24 hours in advance.

Each of our classes is designed around three 8 week terms which roughly follow the school year. After the 8 week term, we will have a Tournament Week for all ages and abilities.
