Golf club throws open doors to aspiring young golfers
GOLF: It may not be the most obvious choice for children’s sport, but golf gurus are inviting Warwick families to give it a go and see the benefits for youngsters.
The Warwick Golf Club are looking for their newest crop of talent to hit the green.
“You learn a lot about leadership, sportsmanship and etiquette in the game of golf,” trainee PGA professional Connor Cruice said.
“It’s good for flexibility and you’re still moving around, walking around the course.
“If someone’s not the most talented at running, golf is a great sport because you don’t need to be the fittest or strongest person to be good at it.”
This Sunday, the club are hosting their annual come and try day, and are hoping to rebuild their once prominent junior membership.
“We used to have quite a good membership, but in the last few years there’s been a bit of a drop-off,” he said.
“We’d really love to see the numbers grow again after the success the program had last year.”
Equipment is free to loan during the program, which Cruice hopes will encourage more people to get involved.
The come and try day will start at 9am Sunday January 19 at the Warwick Golf Club for children 5 to 18.
