Junior Golf

​The MGIC driving range, situated at the entrance of Murwillumbah Golf Club, offers protection from the sun and rain. It includes short par 3 pitch 'n' put holes, making it an ideal place for juniors to learn the game of golf. Children of all abilities and golf skill levels, from beginners to the most assured young golfers are welcome, alone with their families.

 

The MGIC Team are positive, patient and fun. They inspire learners and use their expertise to unpack complex ideas into their simplest forms to build knowledge and measure competency at every level. Three types of programs are available:

  • Weekly Junior MyGolf Clinics

  • MyGolf School Programs; and

  • Vacation Programs.

Though fun and inclusive game-based activities, young golfers participating in the weekly Junior MyGolf Clinics learn about golf rules, the code of polite behaviour, technique, strategy and sportsmanship. 

 

As understanding and skill increases, learners transition into private lessons, supervised practice sessions and on course tuition taught before or after school at the range and on course on real fairways and greens. They focus on mastering 7 main shots, which require slightly different approaches:

• Putting
• Pitching
• Chipping
• Bunker play
• Irons
• Woods/hybrids
• Driver

 

When a person understands how to play these shots they enjoy playing golf and are happier with their game as they practice and increase playing. 

Junior golfers also have the opportunity to play in a variety of junior events such as the The Jeb Hunter Memorial Classic, attend golf camps and play social or competitive golf.

A Parent's Critical Role

It's important to promote sportsmanship, honesty, and ethical behavior.  These values are vital in sports and generally in life.

 

The MGIC Team is looking out for these things in children.

 

After practice or a game, parents should congratulate children, no matter what the outcome or score.

 

As a guide, ask these three questions, which help to listen and reinforce the values of joy, wellness and ongoing improvement. 

Did you have fun?

What did you learn?

Did you try your best?

 

I love you (followed by a hug)!
