jnr golf (sunday subbies)
We have a brand new 9-hole Cadet competition for Juniors under 14 years (6-14 years of age recommended). It will begin in June 2024 and will take place each Sunday. We have nicknamed this “Sunday Subbies”.

The name is derived from the term for Cadets which was “Sub-Juniors” and nicknamed “Subbies” from past years.

This program has been designed to start Cadets playing golf in a friendly and safe 9 hole competition format. They will learn not only how to play golf but also to learn the rules and etiquette.

Most Sundays will start at 9am (8:45am check in). Occasionally times may have to be changed and if applicable, we will provide plenty of notice.

Each Sunday the entry fee is $10 per child. Prizes will be awarded. (Entry fee goes towards this).
MUST be a full Cadet member of the Coffs Harbour Golf Club (information via this link)
MUST have a parent / guardian or adult over the age of 18 caddy and assist their child
MUST have a water bottle and sunscreen

Equipment is not a must but preferred. We do have limited stock of junior hire gear that we can supply at no charge, and we have discount deals for equipment for Cadet members for purchase.
More information will be shared in the next few days. Please check back in the next few days for details.

post-play rules class
Objective: Following each Sunday session, participants will engage in a rule’s scenario aimed at enhancing their understanding of golf regulations and etiquette.

Implementation: A scenario featuring 'Hacker Hank' will be presented, challenging juniors to analyse and apply rules in practical situations. This exercise aims to foster a deeper comprehension of golf rules and promote exemplary on-course behaviour.

Example Scenario: Hacker Hank, while addressing his ball in a bunker, accidentally moves his ball with his club during a practice swing. Participants are tasked with determining the appropriate course of action according to the Rules of Golf. Through this scenario, juniors learn the importance of adhering to rules and the proper procedures for addressing common on-course incidents.

This refined structure ensures a professional and organised approach to junior golf development, providing clear pathways for skill advancement and career exploration.
