Pennant Hills Junior Golf Academy

The Junior Golf Program began in 1999 and has since developed into a full Academy which offers a variety of programs to young people between the ages of 8 and 20. The Academy is subsidised in part by the Kendal Binns Junior Fund which is funded by members to assist the development of young golfers.

The aim of the academy is to provide programs for all levels of junior golfers from beginners wanting to try a new sport to advanced juniors wanting to play tournament golf.

The Beginner Program – Level 1

The goal of this program is to provide a fun and safe environment where players can learn the basic skills of golf while engaging with other players to complete drills and games. This is an enjoyable fun program and perfect for someone with little to no golf experience.

All players starting the program are entered at the Beginner – Level 1 stage and if they decide that golf is for them, they can advance through the various levels that the Academy offers.

Intermediate – Level 2

Once you have completed Level 1 you are then able to join the Club as a member, subject to approval and continue developing proficiency in the basic skills of golf. We will take what you have learnt onto the golf course and show you how to put in action the skills learned during the clinics. This includes various on course scenarios along with rules and
etiquette of the game. Players will begin on a short course and as they progress their skills, will move towards playing the full course.

Junior Membership – Level 3

Level 3A (Handicap Attainment)
Following the completion of Level 2 participants can then start to focus on obtaining a handicap, this will allow entry into competitions.

Level 3B (Social Golf)
For those who aren’t ready for competition golf we have the following pathway.

Competition Golf – Level 4

It’s time to take your game to the next level and start competing in competition golf!
As a Full Playing Junior Member of the Club you will be working towards:

• Playing regularly in member and junior competitions at club level
• Junior team representation
• KBJF consideration

There is no group coaching at this level. Private lessons are highly recommended. To progress into this level the participant must be approved by Director or Assistant Director of Golf.

KBJF Scholarship Holder Clinic – Level 5
Offered to all KBJF scholarship holders and others as determined by Junior Coaching Professional.

Course lengths are ability-appropriate and the aim for these players is to encourage friendly competition and learn the scoring system and rules of golf.
