Club professional Gareth Small and Trainee Professional Russell Skennerton run junior golf coaching clinics throughout the school terms on Tuesday and Friday afternoons. Each clinic program runs for five to six weeks and covers all golf fundamentals including short game, putting and the dynamics of the golf swing generally. We encourage participants to register online through MyGolf, which is Australia’s national junior introductory program to develop and promote participation in golf. Ashgrove Golf Club is an official MyGolf centre.

Clinic details are as follows:

In addition to the clinics the club also has a junior beginner program which runs every Sunday afternoon at 3:00pm and is free for all to come along and participate. We meet up on the putting green at 2:50pm and conclude at approximately 5:30pm with a small presentation in the clubhouse. The children are all supervised by experience club members and this is a great way for them to impart their invaluable golfing knowledge onto the next generation of budding golfers!

In 2016 we are also expanding our program to include a 9 hole junior smash competition on Sunday afternoons from 2:30pm. This is played off the white tees as a stableford event. This competition is suitable for intermediate juniors who either have a Golf Australia handicap, or are putting in cards to obtain this handicap. You must be a junior member of the club to participate in this competition.


With current community debate focusing on community organisations providing healthy, productive, sociable and fun extracurricular activities for all children and teenagers irrespective of theirs or their family’s financial position, Ashgrove Golf Club is delighted to offer a comprehensive and affordable coaching environment. To ensure the long-term viability of Ashgrove Golf Club and the game of golf, and to make a positive contribution to the future of children and teenagers in our community, the Board and management have decided to make junior membership a priority of the Club. This emphasis has begun with the introduction and ongoing development of the club's Junior Development Program.


Current junior membership fees are $115.00 for the 2016/2017 golfing year. For further details please contact the office on 3366 1842 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
