SE FUTURES GOLF DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

Golf is a game for life and it teaches valuable life skills such as honesty, respect, courtesy, perseverance and sportsmanship.

Golf SE Futures Junior Golf Program aims to provide tuition and valuable on course experience for young golfers from Beginner to Advanced level and provides a defined development pathway to enable all participants to achieve their goals.

We encourage all players to be supportive of each other and respect the facilities provided. Experienced players are encouraged to mentor the younger and beginner players and assist the coaches when asked.

Ten sessions conducted over a 10-12 month period will comprise a series of eight (8) coaching clinics each followed by a competition of up to 9 holes as well as two (2) Golf SE Junior tournament days – mid year and end of year. All coaching clinics will be conducted by a local or visiting PGA Coach at various golf clubs in the region – see the schedule below. Experienced Community golf coaches will be assisting at all clinics. Players will be assessed throughout the year and presented with their Certificates of Achievement at the final session.

The Golf SE Futures Program is essentially made up of two groups of Junior golfers:

  1. SE Futures Junior Academy – For players with a maximum GA handicap of 30 (boys) or 40 (girls) and capable of playing 18 holes of competition golf. Scheduled Coaching clinics will be for 1.5 to 2 hrs followed by a competition.

As the players progress through the program they will be assessed by the coach and may be invited to join the High Performance Squads which are linked to the State development program.
