JUNIOR DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
At Bellville GC we understand the importance of developing players for the future. We also believe in giving back to the community and creating opportunities for those less fortunate than ourselves.
Golf is one of the only sports in the world where players of all ages, genders and skill levels can compete on an equal footing and our Junior Development Programme aims to introduce a new generation of golfers to the game. The Bellville GC Junior Development Programme is a 24-week programme that we have launched in partnership with Paul Mackenzie Junior Academy.
The programme is specifically designed to develop under privileged Junior Golfers, who shows potential to perform well in the game of golf and create a better future for themselves.
The main aim of the programme is to identify 4 Juniors, 2 boys and 2 girls, to take part in the programme.
The 24-week programme prepares them to play in the Bridge Fund Junior Series as well as Western Province Open Tournaments. They attend 2 training sessions per week. The sessions will take place at Bellville GC or at The Golf Village Tygervalley. We will focus on all aspects of the game, from Tee to Green.
We fund our Junior Development Programme through Western Province Golf Union Rand-a-Round programme. We collect this money for every round played at Bellville GC and pay it over to the WPGU who administer the fund
Our goal is to grow a strong junior golf squad out of which we will select our junior league teams for the future.
We would like to thank the committee, members, staff as well as Paul Mackenzie and Werner for making the programme possible and allowing the children the opportunity to be part of a programme to grow them as junior members of Bellville GC and as individuals.
