JUNIOR GOLF 2019/From our Golf Pro - 1/1/2019

 It is a goal of mine for this year ahead to prioritise the engagement of children and young people in golf and I would welcome your support in any way. Please forward the information in this email amongst your own networks and let me know if you wish to assist in any way, especially with the Sunday morning on-course component of the coaching sessions where we aim to assist both the children and their parents alike to feel confident and comfortable on course through familiarity with the basics of course etiquette and management. 
The following opportunities are available to all children aged 5 to 18 years of all golfing ability within our wider community - it is not a requirement that the child be a junior member of the Warwick Golf Club. 
MyGolf coaching groups - mid-week, beginning 5th February:
We would like to trial offering an all girls junior clinic on a Tuesday afternoon from 3:45 - 4:45pm for girls aged 6-16. If we do not achieve minimum numbers (5) we may need to adjust this group to be a mixed group as well. 
Other mixed groups for both boys and girls will be held on the following days from 3:45 - 4:45pm:
Wednesday (6-12 year olds)
Thursday (6-12 year olds)
Friday (13+ year olds)
Registration and payment for the golf coaching sessions are required at the following website: www.mygolf.org.au/programs/warwick. If preferred, payment and registration information can be provided to us directly in the Pro Shop.
The cost of the program is $90 per term and we are offering discounts for families who register 2 or more children. 
During the week, the group coaching sessions will be purely skill and technique based in order to prepare the children for a Sunday morning on-course experience / mini-competition on the golf course that we would like to begin offering with support from the pro shop Golf Professionals as well as members from the golf club who would like to offer their time. 
Sunday morning on-course coaching, beginning Sunday 10th February 9-11am:
Cost is $5 per child, payable in the Pro Shop on the day. Depending on their skill level the children will be split across three different grades:
1) Sharks will play 3 shortened holes starting with a handicap of 20 
2) Golden Bears will be play 6 slightly longer holes starting with a handicap of 40.
3) Tigers will play 9 holes from the yellow tees and have a starting handicap of 50. 
It may sound quite daunting for the children to play on the golf course, please be assured support will be provided by us, as well as some member volunteers and we would also welcome any parents who would like to be a part of the Sunday mornings on course to join us in the fresh air for a short wander around our golf course!
