Alexandra Golf Club is committed to providing a facility for school age and junior players in our area to learn and enjoy the game of golf. This is one of the few sports that you can take up at an early age and still be playing well into later life when other sports are beyond your capabilities. Investing some time in coaching at an early age provides a sound basis for that later enjoyment.
Golf is a great game to play and it also helps to develop some key life skills in young people. It requires discipline, concentration, practice, self control and resilience. We certainly don’t suggest that junior players only play golf, it should become part of their skillset and the sports they choose to play, a part that can help them in their other sports.
Coaching is available each year at no charge from an experienced ex professional coach and, for beginners, practice clubs and balls are available at no charge from the Sub Par golf shop. Watch this website and the local newspapers and school newsletters for coaching adverts.
Junior members ($20 per annum or $50 for all children in one family) can also play at any time on the course or the practice facilities when there are no senior club days or events in progress. Evenings are a great time for a few holes of golf and a bit of exercise with Mum and Dad!! Non member parents accompanying juniors around the course in the evenings may also practice at no charge.
Always check in at the Sub Par golf shop before playing or practising so we are aware that you are on the course.
