Mount Lawley becomes the first MyGolf centre of the month for 2017!

Congratulations to Mount Lawley Golf Club on becoming MyGolf’s centre of the month for January.

Located just 7km from Perth and one of Western Australia’s premier sporting clubs, Mount Lawley first became a MyGolf Centre in September 2014.

MyGolf deliverer Emma Jane Liebenau sounded ecstatic as she spoke of her range of junior programs currently running.

Since her arrival, Emma has activated more programs and dispersed participants throughout a range of skill levels and age groups.

Since this change in programming, Mount Lawley has seen great results in the development of skill sets and enjoyment from the juniors taking part.

When asked of the reason for her success, Emma highlighted the structure of the Mount Lawley MyGolf programs, consisting of focusing on fun, introducing development games, chipping and putting holes, and obstacles also provided throughout various lessons.

The club also generously hosts an end-of-term sausage sizzle for the juniors to celebrate their success, along with a certificate provided to everyone involved.

With a maximum of eight participants in each clinic, Emma outlines how she can cover more for each learner, covering fundamentals and etiquette rules.

With this term’s programs filling up within days, her approach is certainly working!

Each Saturday, the club now runs two girls-only programs – Girls Golf – with 15 girls enrolling last term and two joining as full members. The girls then have the option of taking part in the ‘Pretty in Pink’ tournament – a tournament for beginner girls with pink the theme. The tournament has become the biggest girls’ junior tournament in Western Australia.

The MyGolf program has a variety of ages taking part, with many five-year-old participants, with one already in the star intermediate class!

Emma mentions the support she receives from junior co-ordinators Sue Thompson and Ken Ashworth, as well as individuals such as John Hollier who helps set up each week.

“The whole club is very supportive, with a lot of their focus on junior development and the future of golf, gaining support at board level and a massive sponsorship day that raises funds for programming,” Emma said.

Well done to Emma and Mount Lawley on their accomplishments as they continue to support junior development and the future of golf.

Keep up the great work!
