Mygolf Junior Program
About the Program
MyGolf is Australia’s national junior golf program to promote participation in golf, endorsed by Golf Australia and the PGA of Australia. Implemented by PGA Professionals and Community Instructors at facilities across Australia, the program has been designed to ensure children have a fun and safe introduction to golf.
There are three levels of the MyGolf program:
- Rookie: Try golf (5-7 years old)
- Star: Learn the skill (8-10 years old)
- Master: Prepare to play (11-12 years old)
Above all, it is imperative that any activity is fun and engaging for juniors to keep them involved and excited about golf. Juniors, particularly at the introductory level, are looking for fun with their friends and that is the platform for which MyGolf has been based.
Skills Children are introduced to valuable life skills throughout the program that will not only assist them on the course, but also in everyday life. Each level of the program focuses on developing specific skills such as respect, sportsmanship, and perseverance.
Using games is the best way for juniors to learn and develop skills while still having fun. The MyGolf program encourages learning through fun, team-based, inclusive games and activities which allow for skill repetition and progression.
The essence of the program is for juniors to enjoy golf while learning and developing new motor and life skills along the way. It is important from the outset, regardless of age or ability, that we enforce the idea that golf is simple and easy to understand.
