Our aim is to introduce the fun of golf to a younger generation through the national MyGolf program.
MyGolf is Australia's national junior introductory program to develop and promote participation in golf. A 10 week introductory program to the sport, the MyGolf program is designed for 5 to 12 year olds and is the major driver of junior golf participation in Australia.
Through the MyGolf program, we aim to increase participation and engagement in golf by children, and provide a fun, accessible and satisfying introduction to the sport of golf by promoting skills development, as well as the social and fun aspects of the sport, to the wider community.
There are a few simple program philosophies that the MyGolf program has been based around:
Above all, it's 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 therefore that is the platform for which MyGolf has been based.
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 two 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 and learn and develop new motor and life skills along the way. It's important from the outset, regardless of age or ability, that we enforce the idea that golf is simple and easy to understand. In essence, there is one swing in golf that can be shortened or lengthened to make the ball travel different distances.
Further to the MyGolf program, 13 to 22-year-old players are offered training and development via the Dale Nofz Development Squad. This training program is offered to juniors wishing to develop their skills to a higher level and represent the Townsville Golf Club regionally and nationally. This program is available via application.
The club's qualified coaching professionals are all committed to the junior development programs and are more than happy to discuss junior options with parents and guardians.
Over the years, the golf club has been successful in producing many fine young golfers, some of whom have gone on to become regional champions, golf professionals and international players.
