GOLF – A GREAT GAME FOR CHILDREN OF ALL AGES
Bribie Island Golf Club offers wonderful golfing opportunities for youngsters to learn and develop in a sport that emphasises sportsmanship, honesty, and self-development.
GOLF DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
The Club delivers a comprehensive and structured program of coaching, practice and competition, through our unique sub-junior golf passport.
Based on the coaching principles for Golf Australia’s mygolf junior program, young people from ages 5 to 17 years old are welcome to join in the coaching clinics. Skills testing is conducted regularly to give players a good sense of their skill development, coupled with opportunities most weeks to play on the course under the watchful eye of one of our professional golf coaches, or the Club’s Junior Coordinator.
We recognise every child’s personal skill development with our “caps” awards as well as other prizes and encouragement awards during events and at the end of the year.
Entry into local and regional competitions is encouraged as skill levels increase and these give the children the opportunity to have fun at other courses, as well as forge friendships across South-East Queensland.
Juniors who acquire an official Golf Australia handicap are encouraged to play in the members competitions, as well as take part in the Junior Pennant team and other Junior events run by the Zone, District and GA (Qld) throughout the area.
Our junior clinics are delivered by PGA Professional coaches Brayden Campbell and Tom Parchimowicz, and they have many years’ experience in engaging children and making the learning of golf a fun and effective experience. Clinics are held on Saturday mornings and Tuesday afternoons during school terms and are limited in numbers to ensure great coach-learner ratios at every lesson.
In 2020 there are several school holiday programs as well as Term 3 and Term 4 Coaching Clinics on offer. Follow this link Click Here to see the dates and costs of all the coaching options.
The Club offers Junior members a very competitive membership fee of $110 for the year. This allows those with a GA handicap or who have been assessed as “course ready” to play on the course and access the practice facilities in line with general Club requirements.
All Juniors enrolled in the Term Coaching Clinics are able to access a special, greatly reduced Club membership fee of only $35 for the full year. This enables these sub-junior or cadet players to use the junior facilities, free use of golf club sets during coaching and on-course play, and access to lots of great teaching equipment. Cadet Club members are automatically enrolled in our golf passport skills development program that allows children to track their skills and scoring improvements at their own pace. The membership application and more information are available here. 2020 Junior Membership Pack
