Emerald Junior Golf
Junior golf runs
all year and is held on Saturday morning at the EMERALD GOLF CLUB.
Junior golf is run every Saturday except during school holidays and on
dates that conflict with Central Highlands Zone junior opens or senior
club events. (The club will
supply an electronic calendar detailing the clubs yearly programme.)
Purchase of junior
clubs is recommended through Dave Delahunty at the Emerald Golf Club’s
Pro Shop. He is extremely competitive with his prices and will make sure
your child’s clubs are properly fitted to their needs.
The start and
finish times vary with the seasons, in summer we run from 8:30am to
10:30am, in winter it is 9:00am to 11:00am.
The club requires
its members to be between 6 years old to 18 years old. However with club
approval, and the attendance of a parent, the club will take children as
young as 5 years of age.
The Junior Club
requires all juniors to have enclosed shoes, collared shirt, a personal
drink bottle and a hat.
The Junior Club
has its own Junior Shirt, however wearing of the junior shirt is not
mandatory. This shirt can be purchased for $25.
To order a junior shirt please see Mr Brad.

The Junior Club also charges a
fee of $3.00 for each Saturday Morning attendance. This is a nominal fee

large range of junior clubs for short term loan or yearly lease. Basically the club will loan out a set of clubs. The rental of the clubs is
free of charge however the club will need a deposit of $100:00. This Deposit
