 Junior Program

Here at Headland Golf Club we are committed to the growth of junior golf on the Sunshine Coast. We offer an extensive Junior Program for children between the ages of 7 and 17.

Clinics run for 6 weeks during each school term and there are also additional holiday clinics/camps run during the school holidays. Headland Golf Club’s Junior Coordinator Matt Douglas (2014 P.G.A Trainee of the Year) is passionate about the growth of junior golf on the Sunshine Coast, in Queensland and around Australia. Matt’s main aim is to provide the juniors with an avenue to learn golf, social interaction with other children and a pathway to playing competition golf. Most importantly Matt wants the children to have FUN.

There are three types of clinics offered during the school term; Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced; and each clinic is designed to suit the skill levels of the players in the clinic. The clinics offered during the school holidays are open to every child regardless of skill level.

  • Term Clinics – $100 for the six weeks (1 hour clinics) Pro rata rate of $20 per week
  • Holiday Clinics – $50 per day for club members (3 hours each day) $90 for two days if paid prior to start day
