Students from years 4-7 from three Schools; Henley Beach Primary School, Christian Brothers College and Blackwood Primary School made their way to the course for a fun and interactive 90 minute session with PGA Coaches Jordan Harkin, Shane Baxter and LPGA Coach Sarah Douglass. The students were taught the art of rolling it on the putting green, flying it by pitching the ball and ripping it with long shots. Highlight of the day for the juniors was the presence of a film crew from Totally Wild Kids TV show (Network 10) filming a golf segment to be aired in the coming months.
