JUNIOR GOLF PROGRAM
The Port Lincoln Golf Club has run a successful junior golf program since 1963 with the guidance and coaching of some reputable local members. Port Lincoln Golf Club encourages juniors to take up golf as it provides many qualities for life outside of golf.
Our most successful junior- Jack Thompson, was a former member of Port Lincoln Golf Club who had experience with the program before moving to Adelaide to take up golf as an amateur and now plays at Grange Golf Club. Jack has gone on to play in prestigious events such as The Amateur Championship in Scotland, and the Emirates Australian Open in 2018. Follow Jack's progress here.
