Junior golfers have always been welcomed and valued at Maroochy River Golf Club. They are the future of our game, and we acknowledge their importance to our club. As a result we have worked hard in recent years to provide a golfing pathway for young players – from pre-schoolers all the way up to, and including, young adults.

We understand that not all junior players will become champions, even though we do our best to provide the opportunities for them to reach their potential. Our goal is to provide junior players with the skills, knowledge and understanding to have fun and enjoy the game of  golf for a lifetime.

Junior Clinics

Most Saturdays, we host clinics for beginners, some as young as four. They not only learn the skills of the game, but golf etiquette, rules, making friends, social skills and having fun. Junior clinics are held during school holidays. READ MORE

Development Squad

Young players who show promise are invited to join a Development Squad, and attend practice each Tuesday between 4pm and 5pm. We host regular low-key competitions on Sundays that allow inexperienced players to test themselves against their peers in a non-threatening, stress-free environment.


Golfers aged 12 and under are invited to join our club as Cadet Members for $49 per year. Cadet Membership includes :

  • free access to the golf course and club facilities, subject to availability
  • range balls at junior prices
  • discounts on clinic tuition fees

Cadets may progress to Junior membership, at which stage they can acquire a Golf Australia handicap and compete in competitions.


Junior Members can compete in club competitions, and also take part in junior pennant competition against other Sunshine Coast golf clubs, where they make friends, build confidence and enjoy the camaraderie of team competition. Maroochy River Golf Club fields mixed junior pennant teams, with boys and girls competing on equal terms (except that girls hit off from the red tees and boys from white).

For details about clinics and the junior development program, proudly sponsored by Fuji Xerox, inquire at the Pro Shop on (07) 5457 0900.

Bucket of golf balls

Just to let our Junior Girls know the good news which has been confirmed. Each individual junior player is eligible to obtain one large bucket of golf balls per week, free of charge. Just call into the Pro Shop to claim your docket to access the golf balls at the Driving Range.

Welcome to 2022

The Junior Committee has been quite busy in the background and it has been noted that better communication between the committee and our members and parents is required to truly get the best out of golf for our next generation.

Greg Norman Junior Masters

This past week saw many of our club juniors compete in the biggest event of the year on the tournament calendar – the Greg Norman Junior Masters – which was staged at Palmer Gold Coast (Robina Woods).
