Junior Golf Program

Junior Golf Pathway

The Vines Resort and head teaching professional Mark Tibbles from the MTI Golf Academy have combined to promote the game of golf to children in the local community by offering a structured Junior Program. The Junior Development Program is designed to give juniors the necessary knowledge and experience to become accomplished golfers. 

As well as developing their golfing skills, they will learn the correct etiquette required, good sportsmanship and the social skills that the game of golf teaches. Just as important is the emphasis we place on safety and making golf fun to learn.
