Program Details

MyGolf Sporting Schools - Primary Program

The MyGolf Sporting Schools program aims to introduce primary school children to the game of golf through fun, engaging and challenging activities that are easily adapted for a range of age groups and skill levels.

The preferred MyGolf Sporting Schools program model is a four session in school program with an optional fifth or final session at a local golf club/facility. This structure can be flexible depending on the type of program schools would like to deliver. We can look to cater a program to your needs if the preferred structure does not suit.

The program can be delivered by accredited PGA of Australia Golf Professionals, Community Golf Instructors or a teacher from within the school. Golf Australia and the PGA offer an online training module specifically for teachers or coaches delivering golf in schools. To complete this training please head to www.communitygolfinstructor.com.au

Schools Note: When booking a program please provide all program information through the Sporting Schools online booking system and then a coach will be matched by our state/territory program coordinators.

Golf Australia Secondary School Program

Operating uner the junior golf Joint Venture between Golf Australia and the PGA of Australia the new GA Secondary School program incorporates a range of delivery and students engagement methods to form a program that best meets the needs of the group.

Based on research findings from La Trobe University, the five session program is more advanced in its delivery and consists of three sessions of skill development, one week of strategic games and one week of game play.
