Playing privileges of a family juniors are limited to exclude Saturday golf at competition times. When a family junior wants to play competition golf and has a GA handicap, they will be required to pay the relevant affiliation and insurance fees.

    Latrobe Golf Club and Yarra Bend run a joint junior program which is primarily held at Yarra Bend Golf Course, however, each school term the program visits Latrobe Golf Club to play one of two junior golf courses. If a junior is enrolled in the Yarra Bend Junior Program and the family has an interest in membership at Latrobe, we offer a Family Cadet membership which entitles the junior and a nominated sibling plus the parents to play on the Latrobe Golf course after 4pm each day.

 

Junior Holiday Program

The “Super Series” runs during the school holidays in April, July & September.

Our Junior Coordinator will arrange golf for the juniors on Monday and Thursday mornings at approx 10am. A small entry fee applies of about $5 per entrant per round.

Scores are collected at the completion of each round which culminates into a tournament style event. Points are awarded for participation as well as good scoring. On the last Thursday of the school holidays a presentation is conducted to award prizes to the juniors who have performed the best. Refreshments for the juniors are included at the presentation.

Junior Pennant

Golf Victoria Junior Pennant commenced in 2001 as an optional competition for junior golfers aged under 18 years of age. The competition originated out of both the former City Zone and Mini-Minor Pennant Competitions played prior to this time. The clubs electing to participate are separated into general Regions on an annual basis. Junior Pennant consists of “round robin” contests between respective clubs in each Region followed by a finals series as outlined in conditions.

The Junior Golfer of the year is an award presented to the junior who has accumulated the most amount of points throughout the year. Points are awarded for various achievements including winning competitions, reduction of handicap and participating in events at other venues ie junior tournaments.
