They enjoy catering to beginner ladies – providing an easy, welcoming environment with friendly members to assist.

Parents looking for a club for their child or aspiring junior golfers will find Greenacres the perfect choice of club. We are committed to growing the sport we all love and introducing a whole new generation of golfers to the game in a safe and nurturing environment.

Some of the objectives of our junior program are:

  • To recruit and develop junior players to strengthen the junior membership at Greenacres Golf Club
  • To encourage young people to take up and actively participate in the game of golf
  • To provide instruction on golf, but in a way that maximises the fun and enjoyment of the game
  • To assist in developing the skill sets with the aim of attaining representative honours

The great thing about learning golf at such a young age is that it tends to be easy. Pick up the game as a junior and you will acquire the skills required for a lifetime of good golf.

Golf is also the perfect family sport and the handicap system means everyone can be competitive on any given day whatever the actual level of their ability. It teaches life skills, too, such as playing by the rules, etiquette, discipline, and respect for others.

Golf offers access to a healthy, fun outdoor sport and provides the opportunity to make new friends. A year’s membership comes with free unlimited fresh air, fun and friendship thrown in free of charge.
