Nelson Bay Golf Club Juniors contingent is growing each year which is just fantastic to see. We have 35-40 juniors who attend our weekly coaching clinics each school term. We have a band of amazing volunteers who also come week-in, week-out to assist our professional Warren Moses in coaching them and developing the junior's love of golf. Three times during 2018 we have taken an average of 12 juniors away to play in junior pennant competitions; when we took them to Charlestown we had the largest group with 20 children with the next Club to us having 8. Warren works tirelessly on developing our junior program working closely with the Jack Newton Foundation in getting golf into school curriculums and has been to schools 5 times this year running coaching clinics. On Sundays Warren also does an advanced learning class for juniors who are eligible and have hit a certain skill level.
We hosted our end of year celebrations/sausage sizzle for the kids where the Warren & Brian Diemar Scholarship was presented to Zac Semmens. This scholarship is proudly sponsored by the 'Dirty Dozen' Wednesday golfing group. The scholarship is awarded to the child who takes a particular interest and behaviour in the clinics throughout the year. The scholarship prize includes: $50.00 voucher to spend in Moses Golf Pro Shop, a family pass to the Nelson Bay Cinemas, 2x private lessons with Warren Moses, a hat and a certificate. Total value of prize $200.00.
Other prizes are also awarded to the group. There are approximately 5 - 6 volunteer groups and they award a first and second prize to the children based on their behaviour and improvement throughout the year.
