New MYGolf Program launches!

Golf Australia and the PGA of Australia recently entered an historic joint venture agreement resulting in both bodies endorsing and promoting MyGolf as the nationally recognised junior golf program. 

We have conducted a comprehensive review of the MyGolf program and a number of important and exciting changes will be implemented including a new, fun and flexible program curriculum that aligns with the school term as well as a significantly enhanced website with full participant registration and payment capabilities.

What do these changes mean for current MyGolf Centres? 

  • All current centres will need to re-register online via the new MyGolf website from today at no cost.
  • Centres that re-register will receive the new MYGolf Centre Manual and resources required to deliver the new program.
  • New equipment kits and individual equipment items will be available for centres to purchase via the MyGolf website from mid-July 2014. Centres will also be able to order updated Participant Packs for their program via the MyGolf Online Shop from mid-July. Please note that the initial delivery of orders will not occur until the start of October.

Centres planning to conduct school sessions or clinics during Term 3 or Term 4 this year will still be able to run the current MyGolf Schools 1 and 2 programs – a refreshed MyGolf Schools program to reflect the changes made to the facility-based program will be implemented for 2015.

What do these changes mean for current MyGolf participants? 

  • Current participants will need to re-enrol in in their centre's program when the new program is launched, and will receive an new MyGolf Participant Pack including:

                                 – Junior 7 iron
                                 – MyGolf PVC ball
                                 – MyGolf branded drawstring bag
                                 – MyGolf branded cap

  • If participants do not re-enrol in a new MyGolf program, a participant pack will not be able to be ordered and their details will not be held in the new MyGolf database. Therefore it is important, where possible, for participants to re-enrol in the new MyGolf program.
  • Participant enrolment in the program will occur primarily online from July 1. Parents will be able to  register and pay for their child to participate in a Centre's program via the new MyGolf website.

The participant fee will no longer be a one-off cost of $33.00. The fee structure will be set on a "per term" or "per program" basis. The recommended retail price for the upgraded MyGolf program is $110.00, in line with other national junior sport programs. It is important to note that the program can be run for as little as $26, per participant, per term.  Please contact the MyGolf team for further details on the financial model.
