Secondary Specialist Golf

Kingsway Christian College provides a specialist golf programme for students from Year 7 to 12 through a partnership with Marangaroo Golf Course and Lakelands Country Club.  Golf is also on offer in the Primary as an after school club for Years 2 - 6.

For students in Year 7-10 Specialist Golf is offered through a partnership between Kingsway Christian College, Marangaroo Golf Course and Lakelands Country Club. The subject incorporates PGA coaching into the regular timetable, two periods at the Marangaroo Course, and one period at our College Golf facilities. All Specialist Golf students are automatically enrolled as junior members of Lakelands Country Club for a fee of $65.00 per term.  
The coaching during school time is aimed at equipping students with the necessary skills to be able to play golf at any golf course, but more specifically it is aimed at ensuring they are able to become active junior members of Lakelands Country Club. (more information about the club can be obtained from www.lakelandscc.com.au).   This junior membership allows our Golf students to utilise the facilities of Lakelands any day of the week. In addition, transport from the College will be provided on Monday and Tuesday after school to the club. Free junior coaching is offered on Sunday mornings and juniors are mentored by Lakelands staff to become involved in the sport.

The benefits of the programme include an increase in student’s self-esteem in terms of their body image and emotional regulation. It also improves their socialisation skills by giving them a sense of belonging to a club where they can interact with a healthy peer group. Access to positive role models outside of school and especially during school holidays is a great opportunity for all students enrolled in the programme.

Year 11 and 12  students have the opportunity to continue in their golfing journey. Students who commit to the upper school golf programme will have access to Lakelands Country Club each Monday for their double period of compulsory house sport. Students can use this time to utilize the practice facilities at the course and hone their skills or go on-course and get straight into a game with their peers. Upper school golfers can also take advantage of the afterschool program each Monday and Tuesday afterschool. They may choose to remain at Lakelands each Monday after their double sports session allowing for time
for practise, or continue in their game allowing them to complete 18 holes of competition.

Primary Golf

Participation in the Primary Golf programme is charged at $50- $100 per term for an 6 - 8 week packaged programme offered by Teaching Professional Mostyn Farmer of Farmer Golf. . (The Primary Golf programme is not part of the Secondary Golf Academy and does not include junior membership at Lakelands. Primary Golf students will be given the opportunity to play at Lakelands during their senior years in Primary or when they have reached a level of skill that would allow them to participate on that level.)

Once students develop more confidence in playing golf, they have a few avenues open to them outside of the school environment:

  • Lakelands Junior Golf Programme – Thursdays after school. 
  • Joondalup Resort Golf Academy – Junior Programme.  There is free coaching every Saturday 9.30 – 10.30 am, for 5 – 10 year olds.  It is promoted as the "SPARK" option and a great way for families to trial to see if their children enjoy the sport.  Other fee paying options exist for primary students
