The Tuross Head Country Country Club men's golf committee, with the assistance of Narooma PGA golfer, Colin Holmes, has introduced a program for juniors under 18 years of age to receive professional coaching on a regular basis.
Club captain Bruce Lidbury advises that the aim of the project is to introduce golf to youngsters in a managed and safe environment, to learn to appreciate the rules and etiquette of golf, and to provide the opportunity for participants to play in a regular competition both at Tuross Head and other clubs.
Funds have been made available by the FSCGA and a $100 voucher is available to juniors through the NSW Active Sports programme. The voucher can be used to pay for a one year’s Junior Golf Membership of the THCC. Provision of a THCC golf shirt and sundry golf balls and tees is also being made.
Tuross Head golf coaches will operate on a buddy system and each have coach their WWCC certificate in place.
Although the coaching sessions have already commenced, It is not too late for boy or girl juniors to attend at the Tuross Head Country Club each Tuesday at 4.30 pm where they will be made welcome.
All equipment needed is supplied.
