JDP ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
With the growth of the Junior Development program last season this year we will be offering more classes than ever at the academy in order to make it easier than ever for parents to find a suitable time for their kids to attend. Our 4 key levels will remain exactly the same, however this year we plan to introduce a new testing system that allows juniors to move through each level as soon as they are ready. Juniors are also welcome to Practice on Thursday Evening's at the Els Club and attend kids on course classes each week at no extra cost.
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 with golf balls and they are assessed by a coach prior to commencing their first session. Booking is essential each week to attend kids on course.

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.
