Junior Golf
Young golfers are very welcome at our club. We have a positive attitude toward them and encourage them to use our professional coaching programmes, and take part in our varied competitive and social golf through the year.
We emphasise the fun and sportsmanship of the game.
Both Maraenui and Awatoto courses host a junior club.
We have both introductory and advanced programmes hosted by our professionals and senior golfers, with a low student-teacher ratio.
