Schools Gather at The Coast

On Monday 18th September the Coast Golf Club in conjunction with Jack Newton Junior Golf hosted its annual The Coast GC School Gala Day. This year marks the 10-year anniversary of this grassroots golf day and the weather truly came through for all those involved.

It was beautiful day sunny with not much wind.  Four schools with 10 students each attended.  They were Malabar Public School, Maroubra Bay Public School, La Perouse Public School and Our Lady of Annunciation Pagewood.  The students who attended had been exposed to golf through Come and Try days with JNJG staff, and golf programs at their schools.

The students rotated through four different stations to learn more about each skill and to test the skills they had previously learnt. There was a chipping lesson, a putting lesson, a long game lesson and game station where they got to play 3 shortened holes in an ambrose format.

All equipment was provided for the day and the golf club provided muffins for morning tea and sausage sizzle for lunch.  The Students had lots fun as did the coaches. Overall it was another successful day.  Well done to all those involved and we look forward to next years event.

Here is a full list of results from the day:
