Adhering to Golf Australia’s strategic plan for women and girls through Vision 2025, the Australian Golf Foundation Junior Girls Scholarship Program is designed to foster a deep love of golf by creating a strong bond between girls (aged 10-16) and their golf club/facility.

In 2022, we are delighted to welcome Nextgen Group as principal sponsor for the 2022 Australian Golf Foundation Junior Girls Scholarship Program.

The program’s primary aim is to grow the female game to encourage young girls who have shown promise and interest in golf, retaining existing girls and supporting junior program participants to continue their golfing journey.

Girls new to golf may also be engaged in this program should they demonstrate a commitment to learning the sport, prior knowledge and interest in golf and by a structured 24-week Pro training program.

Under the tutelage of a PGA professional, along with the support of club members, scholarship holders will have the opportunity to:

  • Advance their skills through ongoing coaching

  • Obtain a handicap

  • Play in club competitions

  • Form lifelong golfing friendships with other girls and members.

While many girls will continue to enjoy golf as a club member for life, through this program there may be an opportunity to develop and identify future high-performance athletes or teaching professionals. Female professional numbers have continued to decrease in past years and it is important that we continue to provide opportunities for young girls to see golf as a viable career path, whether as a player or a PGA professional.
