1 Introduction

Golf is Australia's most popular participant sport and a sport at which we excel internationally. To achieve this prominence and success both within and outside Australia a co-ordinated and effective golf development system is in place. This system covers grass root through to elite development and involves a variety of golf service organizations. The system is also continually being evaluated and improved and recent developments will see Australian Golf become even stronger.

Outlined below are some of the main elements that make up the Australian Golf Development System. These are discussed under the following headings: Junior Development, Elite Development and Junior Golf Australia.


2 Junior Development

Junior Development opportunities are provided for children aged 18 years and under. They are able to participate in golf activities, competitions and programmes and are encouraged to further progress in the sport.


2.1 Go-Go Golf

Go-Go Golf is a modified version of golf designed for children aged 9-15 years. The Programme's aim is to introduce golf to children in a safe, fun and educational environment while addressing their social, emotional and physical needs. The emphasis is on fun and participation with everyone being involved, despite skill level.
