AIM SeriesShort course event series for all ages and abilities
Since the AIM Series began in June 2022 we have had over 160 players taking part. It takes place at Durbanville Golf Club and is designed to encourage youngsters and those relatively new to golf to set foot on a golf course without being overwhelmed. It also offers a challenge to more experienced golfers to test their short game skills. This is an ideal opportunity for all ages and abilities to take part – mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters can make it a family occasion and we have seen some stunning improvement from several youngsters. Check out the event gallery and on our Instagram and Facebook accounts.
We would love you to come and join us.
The 2024 dates and times are on our calendar here.
How it works
Each player begins the AIM series at the 25m Distance Marker and tries to reach their AIM based on their handicap status over 9 holes. As each player progresses through the series and achieves their AIM, or better, the distance that they start from will increase by 25 metres at the next event but their AIM stays the same. If the player does not achieve their AIM they will have the opportunity at the next event to try again from the same distance.
There are up to six individual tees of different colours situated at 25m, 50m, 75m, 100m, 125m and 150m from the front of each green.
All new participants, irrespective of handicap, will play their first event from the 25m tees with the AIM of taking 36 strokes or fewer over nine holes. Once this has been achieved from 25m, you will progress in subsequent events to playing from the next tee up (50m) with the same objective – taking 36 strokes or fewer. This will continue until you have played from all six tees up to 150m in 36 strokes or fewer.
If at any event, you take more than 36 strokes, you will simply repeat that distance next time out until successful.
When AIM 36 over all six distances have been successfully completed, golfers may start again from 25m with a new AIM 27.
The final target for those golfers who have progressed from AIM 27.
Who can play
The minimum age is 5 and you need neither an official handicap nor a golf club membership. All ages and levels are welcome, including adults, Participants are requested to have had a basic training in how to swing a golf club. To ensure the safety for all those on the course we require adult supervision for players aged 10 years and under. This can of course include playing in the same group. The adult must be prepared to assist the child with scoring, club choice, and carrying/carting clubs as well if needed.

Events for Juniors
Junior Academy Membership (JAM)
All new juniors are required to be assessed by one of our coaches. These complimentary assessments help us place your child in the most suitable programme. We do this together with you, to select the best programme, coach, day, and time to fit the child’s level and schedule.
Once assessed or returning to the academy, for just R298 per child for the year you get discounts on lessons, events like AIM, Order of Merit (OOM) and Holiday Programme, a PMGA cap and more.
It’s more than R3000 in value!
