We are pleased to announce Horizons has been successful in our application for The Australian Golf Foundations Junior Girls Golf Scholarship funding for 2022.
This Junior Girls Golf Scholarship program is hosted by the Australian Golf Foundation and in collaboration with Golf Australia and Golf NSW.
Only 134 facilities across Australia were chosen, and Horizons is the only course in the Hunter, Newcastle and Port Stephens region to be successful for this girls golf scholarship. This is a great achievement to help us continue to support and empower girls in golf throughout 2022.
We have 5 girls golf scholarships available, but we must confirm who these lucky golfers will be BEFORE 13 December 2021. The scholarship will run in 2022 – so read on and if this is applicable to you or someone you know, please forward on this information.
What does the Horizons Girls Golf Scholarship 2022 include:
- 1 year junior golf membership at Horizons – this covers full playing rights, ability to participate in comps and obtain a handicap.
- 24 group sessions held by our leading PGA Professionals staff over the year.
- We will work with our successful candidates to nominate a time that works best for all eg. Every Tues at 4pm for x consecutive weeks during the school semester. Please note this timing is just an example, as we will work to the best time for our successful scholarship holders!
