Junior Golf at Scone Golf Club

For three years now the Scone Golf Club’s push to introduce golf to youngsters around the town and region has continued to grow thanks to a couple of committed members who just love seeing children introduced to and enjoying the game of golf.

Gordon Halliday and Phillip McGuirk have a passion for the game and a greater passion to see Scone Golf Club thrive into the future with a family based club that supports junior development.

Over the years both volunteers have given up their time to introduce golf to local children from all primary schools, including schools in the surrounding townships.  These students are introduced to the game either in school grounds or at the club each year with a fantastice gala day held in December each year for those who have tried golf duing the season.

“Scone Golf Club thanks to Gordon and Phillip are very quick to be involved with any promotion that will allow them and the club to promote junior golf, they try new things, build on proven winners and allow the juniors to develop their skills via MyGolf programs and oncourse activities each year.  The ability to get the juniors on the course eachtime certainly makes a difference, even if it is just on the 9th green for chipping and putting.  The children love the chance to play on the course, they love the interaction with the guys and the club is always willing to provide what is needed to make the session run well,” said Mark Ingrey.

Last weekend Scone Golf Club held a ComeTry day in conjunction with the National Golf Month promotion and the local TV and Radio campaign for all ages to come down and try golf.  They had sixteen juniors come along and try golf, a good outcome that will pay off in years to come.

Thanks for your work and commitment to junior golf gents.
