Junior Golf

The Westown Junior Golf Programme vision is to while having fun, teach the values of sportsmanship, honesty, self-discipline, integrity and competitive spirit through the game of golf.

The Westown Junior Golf Programme is totally committed to promoting golf at all levels. We coach, encourage and assist juniors to play at a level that they are comfortable with and to ensure new players are admitted to the game of golf with a sound knowledge and understanding of the game, rules, and etiquette.

 With our commitment to junior golf, we intend to develop both productive citizens with strong values as well as top golfers, preparing them today to succeed and capitalize on future opportunities and in doing so, ensuring the long-term sustainable future for the Westown Golf Club.

The Westown Junior Golf Programme’s Goal is to become North Taranaki’s leading club for junior development within the next 5 years.

Westown Golf Clubs Junior programme caters for boys and girls aged 5 through to 18.

Golf is the closest game to the game we call life. You get bad breaks from good shots; you get good breaks from bad shots - but you have to play the ball where it lies.
