Here at the Sunshine Coast Golf Academy and the Maroochy River Golf Club, we’re passionate about helping young, enthusiastic players reach their full potential.

Studies have shown that many great sportspeople who played a variety of different sports as young children developed superior motor skills from an early age and continued to hone these skills throughout their careers to become the elite sportspeople they are today.

Sat-morn-groupOur warm up exercises focus on these fundamentals including striking, agility, throwing, balance, kicking, push-pull, catching, jumping, locomotion, visualisation, core strength and rotation. We also sharpen our skills in grip, posture, alignment, plane/wrist and arm motion, and weight shift. And, of course, no program would be complete without a nod to learning the basic rules, exploring certain tactical and psychological aspects of the game, etiquette, golf terminology and interaction skills.

All this and more is learned in a fun-filled, supportive environment, designed to teach young players the true spirit of the great game of golf.

It’s a fantastic pathway to the next level – an invitation to memberships to the Development Squad and “The Club”!

In 2014, in its previous incarnation as Horton Park, we were voted ‘The Club’ which had best promoted Junior Golf on the Sunshine Coast by the Invincible Tour. The program will only get better at our new home at Bli Bli.
