Junior Golf at Glenelg


Welcome to Glenelg Golf Club Established in 1927, Glenelg Golf Club is recognised as one of the leaders in Australian golf. With a progressive approach, Glenelg continues to operate as one of the premier golfing facilities, now ranked inside the top 25 golf courses in Australia. With a true test of golf, modern facilities, nationally recognised coaching professionals, in conjunction with one of Australia’s most regarded junior development programs, Glenelg Golf Club offers junior golfers the perfect opportunity to progress their game to whatever level they choose.

Junior development A key component of every junior membership at Glenelg We are very proud of our investment in junior golf. Glenelg Golf Club places great importance on junior golf and this is reflected in the Club’s junior membership structures and the development programs associated with them, which provide a pathway to help juniors to achieve their golfing goals. Our elite team of nationally recognised and accredited coaching professionals coordinate programs in-conjunction with the Club’s Junior Golf sub-committee. All pro shop staff are available to junior members for coaching and advice, with costs generally covered by funding from the Glenelg Golf Club Foundation. The development of good golfers is a key aim of the program, however there is also a very strong belief that golf should be a fun and enjoyable pastime. The programs in place encourage all juniors, regardless of their ability, to learn, enjoy and respect all that golf club membership has to offer at Glenelg, in a safe, supervised and healthy environment.

Skills for life Glenelg Golf Club has created a progressive junior golf program, placing an emphasis on developing life skills as well as the important golfing components. Golf is a highly social sport and is something you or your children can enjoy at any age or skill level. Membership at Glenelg Golf Club is a lifestyle investment. Junior members have the opportunity to be introduced to the traditions of the game and the etiquette upheld at a private golf club, while experiencing the modern club benefits available; and all in a non-threatening, relaxed environment. Our membership and programs will prepare all junior golfers for playing golf at any club on a local, national or international level, both now and in the future.


Glenelg Golf Club Foundation The Glenelg Golf Club Foundation was established in 2002 to facilitate the funding of key projects through donations from members and supporters.

To date, the Foundation has raised over $200,000, of which almost $130,000 has been spent on funding the Club’s Junior Development Program.

One of the Foundation’s key projects involves the ongoing funding of the Club’s Junior Golf & Elite Player Development Programs. The Foundation believes this is fundamental to the future of the Club and the game of golf.

Since 2002, well over 150 junior members of the Club have received some financial assistance or have been involved in some way in junior development program activities. Many of these juniors have remained members of the Club to this day.

Activities receiving financial support through the Foundation include: • junior clinics • entry fees & various expenses to compete in local, state & national junior events

Glenelg’s reputation as a leader in junior development has been established thanks to the support of the Foundation and the generous donations given by members and supporters.

The Junior Tigers Golf Program provides a pathway for young golfers from Beginner through to Junior Cadets and finally to Junior Membership at Glenelg Golf Club. The structured six-level program applies the motto “A Motor Skill, A Rule & An Etiquette” and each session completed will involve these three areas.

What will it cost me & when can I play? To help in promoting junior golf, entrance fees for Junior and Intermediate members are substantially discounted from the entrance fee paid by adult members. Importantly, there will be no additional entrance fee for Junior members, should they progress into Provisional or Full membership as adults. The entrance fee is payable in instalments provided that 50% of the total entrance fee is paid by the age of 21. The remainder is to be paid by the age of 25. The younger they join, the longer you have to pay your entrance fee.

Juniors can play in every Saturday competition provided they have an A Grade handicap (12 or less for boys, 18 or less for girls). Otherwise, they can play one Saturday competition per month (depending on handicap and skill level), or at any time after 1:30pm. On other days, juniors can play pretty much any time, although a few other restrictions do apply.

Glenelg's short course Designed by world renowned golf coach, Dave Pelz, as the most effective short game tool devised so far, this scoring system enables players to head out onto the practice area and set some clear goals for a short game session. Using the Club’s world class short game facilities (chipping, putting and bunker play), the scoring system enables us to provide juniors with a short course handicap and compete against themselves or other juniors without actually venturing onto the golf course. It’s perfect for those juniors not quite ready to tackle the full 18 holes or just looking to hone their short game.

Travel & trip s Playing other golf courses and visiting other golfing facilities is important in progressing your game. Consequently, we provide junior members with many opportunities to play golf at other courses and to meet other junior golfers around the state and country. These trips are a fun way to make new friends and gain experience playing courses other than your own. Funding is determined through the Junior Development Program’s tiered eligibility criteria. Furthermore, as a junior member, you have access to any number of our reciprocal clubs nationally and internationally. A full list of clubs is availabile on the website.
