The Portarlington Golf club has
a fabulous junior program running on Sunday
mornings from 9.00am to 11.30am each Sunday
during the school term.
The cost is $2.00 and clubs
may be borrowed for use by kids attending the
clinic . It is run by volunteers and every now
and then our resident professional gives a
Last Sunday (2 June 2013),
our Juniors jumped in the Portarlington club
bus and made their way to Balyang Par 3.
Accompanying them were the enthusiastic
volunteers, Marilyn Mooney, Jen Edmanson, Jill
and John Peppard as well as the fabulous fathers
as well as the mums (and 1 big brother), who are
always guiding, encouraging and counting
Quite often a couple more
than the kids remember!
What a little gem this Par 3
is, with 18 holes in the middle of Geelong.
Fabulous service from the
manager , with a very affordable package of golf
and finishing with sausages in bread for a very
hungry lot of professionals and the odd hacker!
The course is challenging
enough for the better players and easy enough
for little tackers who are just beginning.
We are planning to do this a couple of times
through the year as it was a lot of fun.
Thanks to the Port Golf Club who are always
willing to support our Junior program.
Remember all kids are welcome to come to the
clinic each Sunday from 9.30 to 11.00 am
excluding holidays and long weekends
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you are
interested in the program.
