The seasons change quickly and as Autumn drew to a close, excitement and anticipation grew for the ladies at Keilor Public Golf Course. The Winter Women’s Program is the most popular of programs at the venue and engages women of all ages and abilities each year, with many furthering their golf journey with five and seven-day memberships.
Jack McDonald, Venue Manager of Keilor Public Golf Course says, “We are committed to offering a Get Into Golf Women’s event annually, which has become one of our most supported golfing initiatives. It’s great to see the participants learn the sport and form social connections within the game. We hope to see the ladies continue on their golfing journey for years to come.”
As part of Belgravia Leisure’s partnership with Golf Australia and its national Get into Golf Program, Keilor’s Winter Women’s program has progressed with great popularity amongst the local community and continues to provide social connections alongside a focus on increasing physical and mental well-being.
“The wonderful aspect of seeing the program increase in popularity each year stems from our inclusive and accessible venue, where everyone is welcome,” said Mel Puli, Program Coordinator.
“As the women progress through the six-week program, friendships are formed and quite often, members of the golf course will stop by to say hello and enquire after their progress. This year, we have two sisters participating and it brings a new competitive spirit to the program. The sisters love being able to do an activity together which is low impact, yet still gives them time to fulfil their other commitments,” Ms Puli said.
The Get into Golf Winter Women’s program is conducted over six weeks with specialised weekly clinics led by the venue’s resident PGA Professional, Scott Wearne.
To complement the beginner clinics, participants also receive unlimited access to the golf course and driving range; cost price on new hardware purchases and half-price equipment hire. More importantly, participants are able to engage with like-minded women who are keen to hit the fairways, learn a new sport or further develop their existing skills.
