Kid's Golf &
Gerringong Junior Golf Program

Junior Program Registration Form - click here


The Aim


The aim of the Gerringong Junior Golf Program is to give children of all ages a pathway to becoming a golfer. Whether it be a once a year player, social player, club player or professional, this program teaches children the fundamentals of the game. It also gives children the understanding of rules, ethics and fair play. 


Ethics of the Game


Golf is one of the only sports where you can call a penalty on yourself. Teaching young children the importance of good ethics and fair play will give them a great stepping stone into their early lives. I teach kids the value of being honest and the respect they will get from their peers as they grow older. 
It is very important to also teach our young golfers about frustration control. We all get frustrated on the golf course, I will teach the children how to laugh and enjoy themselves when golf things don’t go well out on the course.


The Program


This program is designed to allow children as young as 4 years of age, the opportunity to learn the game of golf from a PGA Professional. Each section of the program is designed to let the kids have fun and learn the game of Golf. All of the juniors will be put into different levels/classes depending on their age and skill level. For the juniors to move up a level they will need to pass the playing test.
At the conclusion of each day, there will be a small presentation of prizes and the winning kids will be encouraged to make speeches.
