Junior Development Program

The most comprehensive Junior Golf Programs in the ACT, created under the guidance of Andrew Welsford.

Federal Golf Club is committed to the growth of Junior Golf. We offer an extensive My Golf Program for Juniors Members and Non-Members from 5 years of age up to 17 years of age.

We have coaching Clinics that run for 10 consecutive weeks over each school term as well as Junior Holiday Programs.

The program is designed to help juniors to start playing golf, continue to learn, refine and master their own golf game and nurture them into well-rounded athletes. The program will focus on preparation, technique and shot selection — from the basics to competitive strategies. We have incorporated a variety of interesting and practical activities that are fun and train our young players to be able to adapt in different situations.

In our endeavour to grow the game of golf, we are offering a FREE Junior Membership to Federal Golf Club to those juniors who attend two terms of the My Golf Program we offer.

Federal Golf Club’s Director of Coaching, Andrew Welsford runs the Junior Clinics and has had over 26 years of expertise as a Golf Professional.

We are also working in conjunction with JNJG to develop a Junior Competition Day on Tuesday afternoons at Federal Golf Club for Members and Non-Members.

The Values of Golf

Not only do we want to help young players improve their golf, we wish to shape the lives of young people from all walks of life by teaching them values through the great game of golf. Our focus is to help them prepare for success in golf, high school, university and in life by creating a world-class Teaching and Learning Centre. 

It is well known that golf promotes and instils values such as: honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy and judgment.
