MyGolf is Australia’s National Junior Program that is targeted to girls and boys aged 5 to 12 years of age.
Administered by Golf Australia and the PGA of Australia, the goal of the program is to increase participation and engagement in golf by children.
MyGolf is delivered by accredited coaches and provides a fun, accessible and satisfying introduction to golf for children by promoting skills development and the social and fun aspects of the sport to the wider community.
Information for Parents
Run at golf clubs and facilities across Australia and delivered by accredited PGA of Australia Members and Golf Australia Community Instructors, the MyGolf program is a structured introductory program to the sport of golf for children endorsed by both Golf Australia and the PGA of Australia.
Above all, it’s imperative that any activity is fun and engaging for juniors to keep them involved and excited about golf. Juniors, particularly at the introductory level, are looking for fun with their friends and therefore that is the platform for which MyGolf has been based.
Children are introduced to valuable life skills throughout the program that will not only assist them on the course but also in everyday life. Each level of the program focuses on developing two specific skills such as respect, sportsmanship and perseverance.
Using games is the best way for juniors to learn and develop skills while still having fun. The MyGolf program encourages learning through fun, team-based, inclusive games and activities which allow for skill repetition and progression.
The essence of the program is for juniors to enjoy golf and learn and develop new motor and life skills along the way. It’s important from the outset, regardless of age or ability, that we enforce the idea that golf is simple and easy to understand. In essence, there is one swing in golf that can be shortened or lengthened to make the ball travel different distances.
