Stars sign up for PGA junior extravaganza Thursday 30 November 2006
The PGA of Australia is again leading the way with innovative and entertaining programs designed to bring more kids into golf - and some of Australia's biggest golfing names are joining them!
Adam Scott (World #4), Rod Pampling, Peter O'Malley and Cadbury Schweppes PGA Junior Program Patron Craig Parry have all signed up to be part of the PGA's Junior Festival of Golf which will be held in Queensland to coincide with the Cadbury Schweppes Australian PGA Championship. They will attend clinics and BBQ's with the kids on Tuesday 5th December.
The PGA Junior extravaganza will feature three main programs with something for just about every junior golfer to do.
Firstly there will be the PGA Junior Festival of Golf featuring nearly 100 junior golfers who qualified to attend throughout the year. There is also the inaugural PGA international 36 hole junior tournament with players representing Australia, Japan, New Zealand, Samoa, Hong Kong and Singapore which will take place at Noosa Springs and Twin Waters Golf Club's that week.
The second program is called Pathway to the PGA and is a schools program where 10 local primary schools in the Sunshine Coast area will receive free golf clinics from PGA Members leading up to the Cadbury Schweppes Australian PGA Championship. Two boys and two girls from each school will qualify through to the "Pathway to the PGA" Final on Thursday and Friday during the tournament week at the Hyatt Regency Coolum. Each student will receive a gift, and the winning school will receive a six week all expenses paid golf tuition program for their school, a full set of Srixon golf clubs which they can use to raise funds and a Srixon Junior Golf Equipment Kit to use at their school.
Finally, there is the PGA Kids Golf Zone. This is a huge marquee filled with fun and entertainment for kids and will be located just near the driving range at Hyatt Coolum during the PGA Championship.
EA Sports, the makers of the world's most popular golf game, Tiger Woods PGA Tour have joined as a major supporter of this facility and kids will be able to play the game on Xbox 360 consoles and one lucky child will win a console to take home for themselves. The PGA Kids Zone will also include interactive free games such as sticky target chipping, fun putting, free junior golf lessons, and information about local junior golf programs in the area. The Greg Norman Golf Foundation will also be represented at the Kids Golf Zone.
Helping more Australian's enjoy golf more often, especially juniors, has always been an objective of PGA of Australia. With these junior initiatives at this year's Cadbury Schweppes Australian PGA Championship kids will definitely be getting into the golfing zone!
