The Hunter River District Golf Association with the cooperation of Jack Newton Junior Golf is organising FORE KIDZ golf for any young person interested in playing the game of golf. Players do not need to be a member of a golf club.

The aim of the program is to give beginner juniors an introduction to golf, whilst giving the more advanced junior golfers an understanding of the rules, etiquette and responsibilities on a golf course.

This program will not be a coaching clinic, the idea is to get as many junior golfers as possible playing the game on different courses.

It is seen as beneficial for the junior golfers of different clubs to get together on a regular basis, as it allows each child the opportunity to develop not only their golf game but friendships.

The FORE KIDZ program includesa 9-hole event, once a month (Sundays) played on different golf courses throughout the Hunter and concluded in December with a Christmas Party for players and families.

This program will be organised, coordinated and run by Chad and Mel Vesper from Singleton Golf Club

Every Hunter River Club is asked to support this initiative. Please pass this information to anyone interested. This will succeed if all clube get behind the idea. The program will not replace and Club Clinics, the sole purpose is to give any junior golfer thr chance to play this wonderful game

Please let the HRDGA know if your club has any young golfers interested by contacting:
