JUNIOR GOLF PROGRAM OVERVIEW

MYGOLF (School Terms 2 & 3)

MyGolf is the national junior golf program promoted by Golf Australia. The GGC delivers this program on Sunday mornings during terms 2 & 3. Each term consists of 6 to 7 sessions of various skills training, preparing our junior golfers for on course play.
The GGC has 15 accredited coaches, trained to deliver the program. Players are split into groups of approximately 10, based on skill level.
The target age for juniors is between 5 & 18 years.
Parents are invited along to watch and enjoy a coffee from the clubhouse. There is also our customary sausage sizzle to finish the MyGolf sessions.

GIRLS GOLF CLUB (School Term 1)

Girls’ participation rate for golf has been on an alarming descent in the last few years. Goldfields Golf Club aims to encourage more girls to play golf, by offering Girls Golf Club, a program promoted by GolfWA. Studies have shown that girls are likely to stay in a sport if they receive encouragement and support from other girls in the same environment.
The target age for girls is between 5 – 18 years.
School term 1 will include of a series free 1 hour introductory lessons, hosted by the Course Professional.
Beyond term 1 Girls Golf Club will join the Sunday morning MyGolf program. The Girls will have their own group(s) and several lady coaches.

ON-COURSE GOLF (School Terms 2 & 3)

On course golf during terms 2 & 3 is limited to players invited to join the coaches in the Sunday member’s competition, following the MyGolf lessons. Generally it is limited to players in Silver and Gold groups.

ON-COURSE GOLF (School Terms 1 & 4)

On course golf during terms 1 & 4, includes the Pee-Wee group playing holes 15 thru 18 from temporary tees setup down the fairway, playing a modified stroke format. The Bronze group also plays a modified stroke format from the Sub-Junior Tees (Yellow Tees). Silver and Gold group players are invited to join the coaches in the Sundays member’s competition.
When attending any of the Sub-Junior Competitions please ensure we know your attending, so coaches and timeslots can be organize.

MOTHERS DAY & FATHERS DAY AMBROSE

On Mother’s Day and Fathers Day we play 9 holes of Family Ambrose from the Yellow Tees. Winners are drawn from a hat, so handicaps are not required. We then enjoy a sausage sizzle and drinks on the veranda. These are great days for junior players and parents to socialize.

GOLDFIELDS SUB-JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIPS & SEASON WIND-UP

Usually the last Sunday of school term 3, the Junior Sub-Committee hosts our annual Goldfields Sub-Junior Championships. Players are graded into A, B & C Grade and play 9, 7 and 5 holes respectively. This is always a fun day, with the kids playing on course followed by a family BBQ and presentations. All our sponsors are invited along, so it is a good time to show our appreciation and golf skills.
