During the last 3 years several local primary schools have taken the initiative to conduct golf sessions as part of their school PE program. The schools are Mt Burr, Newberry Park, Millicent North and St Anthony’s. Most activities are conducted on the school oval by school staff and PGA coaches. Ideally the students need time on the golf course and the club should be encouraging this to happen either through school holiday activity days or after school. Naturally a certified supervisor is required to be present at all times for the club to meet its child safe obligations. If you are a parent, grandparent or interested club member who would like to see the club become more engaged with its juniors golfers please consider getting the certificate – its not difficult and its fully funded by Golf Australia. After 6 years as junior liaison person I will not be renewing my certificate next year. Regards Mary Winser

Millicent GC is conducting a Ladies Golf Clinic on Sunday 4th March. For Beginners and Ladies returning to golf the club encourages the use of our Short Course in particular for anyone looking to take up golf or players who don’t have time to play the full course. It may be shorter but as a few of us have discovered you still have the challenges of the full course to contend with.
