Junior golf development
Pure Motion Golf Academy manages one of the top junior academies in the Western Cape with over 80 children training weekly under the watchful eye of our specialist coaches. Many of our young golfers have been selected by Durbanville Golf Club in various League teams, several of whom have gone on to represent Western Province at junior level.
A number of former Juniors who developed under our programme have accepted golf scholarships to American Colleges. Others have progressed to full Western Province selection and even reached the pinnacle of representing South Africa.
We assess all children when they enter our academy and advise you on the most appropriate and effective programme for their needs.
Our programme caters for Juniors aged 4 to 17 and has been developed over many years. Our training is specific to the age of each child and their level of golf. Group or individual lessons ……what is right for your child? We assess all children when they enter our academy and advise you on the most appropriate and effective programme for their needs.
We offer the following options:
- Grassroots (4 to 6 years) : Group lessons
- Youth Academy (7+years) : Group or Individual options available
Order of Merit
We launched The PMJA Order of Merit competitions in July 2012 at Durbanville Golf Club. It has proved to be very popular and extremely valuable to the development of our Juniors of whom up to 28 can take part.
All Junior Academy members, who are course ready, can participate in some or all of these events. The purpose of an Order of Merit competition is to give our Juniors additional opportunities to play on the course and to become accustomed to playing in a competitive environment. They will accrue points after each event, which then count towards the final order of merit at the end of each term.
The leading Juniors are awarded prizes at the termly prize giving.
