2011 Junior Coaching and Competition programme

The programme for the year begins on February 12th and runs each weekend on a Saturday from 1:30 -3:30 pm, weather permitting . Please ring the Clubhouse on 09 4362246 before midday for confirmation if the weather looks doubtful.
This year we are beginning with a 10 week course that covers all the basic skills as well as knowledge of the rules and course etiquette. Participants will be eligible for a certificate at the end of the ten week period. The cost for members will be $20.00 in addition to their $60.00 annual membership fee. Non-members - $80.00 which includes membership until the end of the financial year.

Coaching will not take place during the winter months (July, August) when ground conditions are not suitable for constructive play. Coaching begins again on Saturday September 5th.

The programme covers all the basic skills set out in the Level 1 Junior Plus programme of the NZ Golf Foundation. 'The Pines is an accredited member of the 'Junior Plus' programme.

Clubs, bags, trundlers and balls are all provided during coaching sessions, for those who do not have their own equipment.
Junior Coaches are all club members who have received appropriate training from the NZ Golf Asociation and all have a very keen interest in seeing that all juniors enjoy the experience and improve their game.
You do not have to be a Pines Club member to come along to coaching sessions but you do have to be at least ten years old. The Club is able to provide coaching and advice to juniors with a wide range of skills and abilities, right from the absolute beginner through to single figure handicappers.
Juniors move to the senior adult ranks after they turn nineteen.
Juniors with handicaps can compete in the Club Junior Matchplay and Junior Stroke Play competitions. Theses will be held in the Spring when course conditions are more favourable. Details of the actual dates and times will be published in Pitchmark ( The Pines official publication) well in advance of the events.
Once a reasonable standard of play has been achieved and a sound knowledge of the rules and golf etiquette has been demonstrated, Juniors will be invited to participate in the Club Sunday programme alonside Senior players.
Juniors with handicaps will also be able to take part in regional Pennants competitions and both they and their parents will be advised of


eligibility and of dates and times when they become available.
