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 non-members and is aligned with MyGolf, Australia’s national junior introductory program to develop and promote participation in golf. The Club’s program shares the same aims of MyGolf, that is 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.
If you’ve been directed to this page from the MyGolf site you will discover that the Barwon Heads ‘Aces’ program runs a little differently to most programs listed on www.mygolf.org.au
Most programs on the MyGolf site are weekly and run during school terms. Aces, however, is held on the first Sunday of each month from February to December. Prepayment is not required, participants can come when they want and pay on the day at the Pro Shop. A reminder email will be sent to registered participants the week prior and an indication of attendance is requested.
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 November when it is held on the second Sunday due to Father’s Day).
BHGC Professionals will provide tuition and range balls between 1.00pm and 2.00pm each Aces session
ACES par-3 tee times to be formally set aside on the Club timesheet for exclusive use of ACES participants from 2.00pm
On selected Sundays there will be presentations and prizes will be awarded in the clubhouse following the par 3 play.
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.
