Applications still open for 2023 Australian Golf Foundation Junior Girls’ Scholarship Program funding

Clubs and PGA Professionals across Australia still have the opportunity to apply for funding to run a junior girls’ golf scholarship program in 2023.

The Australian Golf Foundation, in association with Golf Australia, is delighted to present the Australian Golf Foundation (AGF) Junior Girls Scholarship program for a third year.

Selected clubs and facilities across Australia will receive $2,000 in funding to offset the cost of group tuition for the year.

Mt Derrimut Golf Club, 30 minutes west of Melbourne’s CBD has enjoyed funding in 2022.

“The program has enabled our club to bring daughters of parents who were already members into the fold. This is helping us achieve our goal of being a welcoming and family friendly club,” said Brian Hardie, Mt Derrimut’s General Manager.

Windaroo Lakes Golf Club in QLD has seen the benefits the program brings….

“It has been good for our club and great for the girls,” said Daniel Bird, Head PGA Professional at the club half an hour south of Brisbane’s CBD. “The program has tied in beautifully with our MyGolf program, enabling a smooth transition for girls.”

Bird has many girls scattered throughout his various MyGolf clinics throughout the week, but the scholarship program has enabled him to bring the girls together.

“It has been good to see the girls improve their golf, but there has been nothing better than seeing these girls have so much fun together,” he said. “It is just a fantastic opportunity for girls to spend time with like-minded girls without the pressure of having boys around. These girls are not only connecting through golf, but I know they are spending time together outside of golf too.”

Scholarship recipients at each club will receive group tuition and membership for the year, along with a branded shirt and cap to wear with pride.

Applications are now open for 2023 (close 25 October 2022). The Australian golf industry invites all clubs across Australia to apply.
