Junior Golf

HGC Junior Development Committee & Australian Sport Foundation 


Heidelberg Pro Shop support and promote the MyGolf initiative driven and supported by Golf Australia and the PGA of Australia. We teach and develop our kids using the U.S Kids Golf Program which is the number 1 brand in Junior Golf WorldWide. 

U.S. Kids Golf offers all the resources to introduce golf to the beginner golfer and provides curriculum and tools a teaching professional needs to engage students and parents.


To make it fun to learn the key fundamentals of the game, U.S. Kids Golf has developed this easy to use pathway, which consists of ten levels. 

Within each level, there are five checkpoints in which Achievement pins may be earned: PuttingAround the GreenFull SwingKnowledge, and Scoring. Once all five are attained, a Mastered pin is awarded, and the player advances to the next level.

When can Junior Members play golf?

Juniors can play in every Saturday competition provided you have an A Grade handicap (0 to 9). Otherwise, you can play in the Sunday golf programme (depending on handicap and skill level), and anytime during the week excepting Wednesday unless you have an A Grade handicap. Juniors have reserved access to the tee on Sunday afternoons for games of 4 holes (supervised), 9 holes (semi-supervised) or 18 holes of unsupervised golf. This means it’s all about you with no adults around!

What is junior pennants? Will I have to travel? 

Besides playing and developing your golf skills at your home Club, playing other golf courses, and visiting other golfing facilities is important in progressing your game. Consequently, we provide Junior Members as many opportunities as possible, to play golf at other courses and to meet other junior golfers around the state. This can be achieved by representing the Club in the Junior Pennant competition, or by entering one of the many junior tournaments scheduled during the year. This also gives you the chance to show other golfers what you have got! The Club also arranges an annual golf trip for junior boys and girls somewhere in Victoria.  These trips are a great, fun way to make new friends and to gain great life experiences playing courses other than your own among your fellow junior members. Furthermore, as a junior member at Heidelberg Golf Club you have the ability to play at any number of our Reciprocal Clubs nationally and internationally.
