Wombat Golf Day for Quirindi Public School

Quirindi Public began their 2014 Golf Program with the Year 5 students enjoying a day at the golf course. Fifty three students started with some warm up swings on the driving range and then played some modified holes of Wombat Golf. For the majority of the students it was their first experience of playing golf on a proper course.

The students played three holes (Par 3, 4 and 5) on the short course at Quirindi and the winning team had a fine four under par round of eight. Each team was guided around the course with members who taught them some of the finer aspects of the game.

Mrs Davis and Mrs Deroos completed a staff development course and will use their newly acquired knowledge to deliver a golf program to their students back at school.

JNJG and Quirindi Public would like to thank Quirindi Golf Club, the members and Adam Hitchens for all their assistance in making the day such a success and look forward to their next day on the course.
