New Junior Programme 2021

We are pleased to inform our Junior members & parents about our new Cronulla Junior Golf Academy which will be commencing on 19th April. It will be structured over 8 continuous weeks, involving various exciting elements & opportunities. 

Below is a snapshot of what you can expect:

  • There will be a Term fee to join the program, however the kids will receive a shirt, hat & lesson booklet. The program will be structured and organised and will outline each weekly lesson session in advance.  Participants will also be encouraged to make notes on their progress in the lesson booklet throughout the Term. 
  • Sessions will run for approx. 1 hour per week held initally on a Monday afternoon. If required additional programmes will be organised on a Wednesday.
  • The sessions will largely be games based with a focus on fun and involvement.
  • A ratio of 1 coach per 8 students, will be used. 2 coaches will be available. This is to ensure safety is at the forefront and all participants receive value for their time.
  • A progression plan will be put in place to monitor the juniors throughout their sessions with the older/more able classes introduced to on course play when they are ready.
