Ju­nior golf off to a great start

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

THERE was a great turn up at the ju­nior golf sign on day on Sun­day, de­spite the rain. Twelve boys and five girls reg­is­tered, with many fam­ily mem­bers and the com­mit­tee brav­ing the weather to sup­port the ju­niors.

The 2014 ju­nior golf­ing pro­gram was dis­cussed, and it was de­cided that, along with coach­ing, the most im­por­tant thing for the ju­niors was that they get out on the course and have some fun, keep­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence as en­joy­able as pos­si­ble for all in­volved.

The com­mit­tee and club pro­fes­sional, Kane Nustel­ing, will at­tempt to im­ple­ment a pro­gram that will ben­e­fit all ju­niors, in­clud­ing coach­ing ses­sions for be­gin­ners and in­ter­me­di­ate play­ers, plus reg­u­lar op­por­tu­ni­ties for ju­niors of all lev­els to play some holes.

The com­mit­tee are look­ing to set aside reg­u­lar Sun­day morn­ings for kids to play with their par­ents and other club mem­bers, fol­lowed by sausage siz­zles and pre­sen­ta­tions.

A ju­nior com­mit­tee will also be formed, to help en­sure ev­ery­one can make the most of this ex­cit­ing new pro­gram. The ac­tual start date of the pro­gram will de­pend on the weather.

Ju­niors can still sign-up to be part of the pro­gram, par­ents should con­tact the club for more in­for­ma­tion on 4945 1337.
