Curlewis Junior Golf Academy
An hour on Sunday that will give your child skills they’ll value for life
The Curlewis Golf Club The Bellarine is proud to launch a junior-focussed development program that will provide your child with skills and enjoyment that will allow them to play golf, either socially or at competition level, for the rest of their life.
The new Curlewis Junior Golf Academy is under the direction of renowned PGA Teaching Professional, Steve Brodie and his PGA Trainee Professional, Tom Jefferies.
The program is delivered via one-hour development sessions, over eight weeks, on Sunday morning from 10.00 till 11.00 am, during the school terms.
The program is focussed is on building your child’s self-confidence, recognising their achievement and most importantly their enjoyment. There is no requirement for your child to become a member, nor buy clubs, until they show an interest in progressing further.
The Academy’s development program is carefully tiered and tailored to your child, so they can progress at their own pace. We also recognise and value that your child’s self-confidence and recognition of their achievement is rewarded frequently, which is why we offer an exclusive Curlewis Academy branded coloured golf caps system, similar to karate’s coloured belts grading system.
The Academy covers all key areas of golf tuition including: Grip, Stance, Putting, Chipping, Full Swing and more.
Dress code: Our dress code is friendly and very relaxed. We simply recommend your child wearing clothes they feel comfortable playing sport in, along with runners
Cost: $80 per child per school term

Development Program outline:
The new Curlewis Academy is designed to provide junior, who show interest in golf, with an easy pathway to becoming a golfer, or simply to develop their skills.
Your child’s development is carefully monitored through a staged program. While it is beneficial that children first participate in the Golf Australia’s popular MyGolf Program, which we conduct here at Curlewis over three mornings during the school holiday, it is not essential
