1st to Eighteen – Golf Coaching for Kids, Durban

 

1218-2

The 1st to Eighteen Golf is a golf academy for youngsters between the ages of 6 and 12. Based at Royal Durban Golf Club, the Academy was started in 2005 by Neil Pearce, Nigel Hardy and myself and we are extremely passionate about junior golf and introducing youngsters to this wonderful game. Our focus is on introducing children to golf, teaching them all facets of the game, including how to score, the rules of golf and etiquette, and giving them the confidence to join the Junior Section of Royal Durban Golf Club where they will be able to play in the Junior competitions

All equipment is provided so youngsters joining 1st to Eighteen do not need their own golf clubs or golf balls. The coaches are fully trained and provide a totally professional approach ensuring your child receives the best possible advice and guidance. Lessons are conducted in a friendly and fun environment that will keep interest and enthusiasm levels high

Our value system is based on 9 core principles, all of which are inherently positive values connected with the game of golf. They are: Responsibility, Etiquette, Honesty and Integrity, Sportsmanship, Respect, Confidence, Perseverance, Courtesy and Judgment

 One of our testimonials is from a very special man, The late Roy Parker of Natal Nomads Golf “Never underestimate the importance of what you are doing for golf”

      Hi Tau
      The 1st to 18 golf academy only operates during the school term on Saturday mornings and there are no boarding facilities. I suggest you take your daughter to Schoeman Park Golf Club who have a junior academy at 14:30 on Friday afternoons. You can check out their website – http://www.schoemanparkgolfclub.co.za – and contact the Pro Shop on 051 448 3122
      Kind regards
