Kendal Binns Junior Fund
The Kendal Binns Junior Fund (formerly known as the Kendal Binns Cadet Foundation) was formally registered with the Australian Sports Foundation in 2014 with the fund providing the option of tax deductibility for any members who donate.
Through the Fund, young golfers will be given the necessary support to help them achieve their personal goals in golf whilst also helping them grow as fine young members of our Club. An important distinction to note is that the Foundation will support and grow individual players while the Pennant Hills Golf Club will continue to support representative teams, as it has for many years. Our funding objective was to raise $20,000 in its first year.
This financial assistance will provide a comprehensive support program that includes:
- lesson fees with Professional coaches
- physiologist assessment and resultant exercise & training routine
- driving range credit
- travel expenses
- entry fees for special competitions (e.g. Vardon and Jean Derrin events)
- medical expenses for golf related injuries
- one day and/or half day clinics for appropriate groups
- possible weekend camps
We are very grateful for the pledges already received totalling well over $20,000 which has enabled us to commence our support of the young golfers immediately with $2,000 spent on equipment purchases and a further $2,000 committed to funding golf activities.
