When it comes to trying out a new sport, there could be nothing better than great coaches and green fairways to entice children and teenagers.
Valley View and Glanville Golf Course had a combined total of 17 juniors give golf a go as part of their Junior Come and Try day. From the smiles of the participants, we are certain golf will be part of their future!
Working with the PGA Professional, Venue Manager Jerry Goonting, worked with participants in groups – dividing their time between the fundamental skills of chipping and putting, swings and pitches. With all their practice, they were able to spend time on the fairways perfecting their skills.
Come and Try days for juniors are a great way to engage the local community and showcase the fantastic green spaces our golf venues have to offer. Not only is golf a fabulous sporting activity for children of all ages and abilities, but it also provides a great pathway for participants to make new friends, enjoy the outdoors and get physically active.
