Junior Golf


Mark Shaw supports two Australian Junior initiatives.
MyGolf is driven and supported by Golf Australia and the PGA of Australia. I teach and develop our kids using the First Swing Golf Program for my little ones and first timers until they progress to a level to participate in the MyGolf program before entering into the Deep Creek Golf Club Advanced Junior Golf Development Squad
First Swing engages participants through programs designed to kick start a lifelong love of the game of golf, using a fun, active and inclusive approach.
   First Swing deliver programs at traditional and non- traditional facilities using modified equipment.Our programs teach girls and boys of all ages and abilities the basic fundamentals. First Swing programs are designed and developed by Australian PGA Professionals.
