The Club encourages interested young golfers to register and be involved in The Barwon Heads Golf Club’s ‘Junior ACES’ program.
The Aces program is open to all children and shares the same aims of MyGolf (Australia’s national junior introductory program), to increase participation and engagement in golf by children, and provide a fun, accessible and satisfying introduction to the sport of golf by promoting skills development, as well as the social and fun aspects of the sport.
The Barwon Heads ‘Aces’ program runs a little differently to most programs listed on www.mygolf.org.au. Most MyGolf programs are weekly and run during school terms. Aces, however, is usually held on the first Sunday of each month from February to December. Prepayment is required prior to each session.
The objectives of the Club’s junior program are to:
Support juniors to achieve their golfing goals
Enable the Club to become a leading centre of junior golf in Victoria
Develop a passion for the game of golf and a love and appreciation of the Club
Develop an active and vibrant junior membership category of the Club
The BHGC ACES program features:
Aces will be conducted on the first Sunday of each month between February and December (except in September when it is held on the second Sunday due to Father’s Day).
BHGC Professionals will provide tuition and range balls.
ACES par-3 tee times to be formally set aside on the Club timesheet (book beforehand).
On selected Sundays there will be presentations of ‘Red Caps’ and prizes will be awarded in the Clubhouse.
Please take some time to read through the documentation in the links below and return your registration form as soon as possible. If you have any questions please contact the Junior Program Coordinator, Hague Shier, on 0419 887 429.

Some information about the Par-3 Course
Except during the occasional competition/event, the par-3 course is open to all members of the public. After the basics of golf have been introduced it is the perfect place for juniors to hone their skills and develop a passion for the game. Payment ($5/child) is to be made at the Pro Shop (the building opposite the Clubhouse) prior to play. Click here to read more about the par-3 course.
