Junior Golf Development

Creating a long lasting love for the game

The Pure Motion Golf Academy manages one of the top junior programmes in the Western Cape with over 180 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 and South Africa at the junior level.

A number of former Juniors who developed under our programme have accepted golf scholarships to American Colleges.

Calling All JuniorsAll 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!

Instilling Confidence

Order Of Merit Competition

PMGA OOM prizewinner Reinhardt Basson

The Pure Motion Golf Academy Junior Order Of Merit (OOM) competition was launched in 2012 at Durbanville Golf Club for those aged 18 or younger.

Juniors of all golf clubs nationwide who are course ready may participate which includes non members of Durbanville Golf Club.

It has proved to be very popular and extremely valuable to the development of our juniors by providing additional opportunities to play on the course and to accustom juniors to playing in a competitive environment.

Players’ scores count towards the final Order Of Merit at the end of the year. Prizes for leading juniors in their Divisions, as well as the most improved, are awarded at an end of year prize-giving.

Feedback from clients

Overall Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

How would you rate your overall experience?: Excellent
How would you rate the improvement?: Leaps and bounds better than before

“Allow me to share my experiece with you. Beginning 2022 I registered my grandson (8 yrs) with your academy. He lacked general cofidence and being small in posture has never excelled in contact sport at school. Matthew took him “under his wing” as coach and mentor.

Within ONE YEAR(!) he now is a little 9 year old boy filled with confidence. He is showing a lot more concentration in his class at school and every game played at the golfclub I can seen improvement!

He refers to Pure Motion as “his school ” and to Matthew as “my coach” – he will do whatever it takes to enhance the environment he is coached in – it is like he now has something he totally believes in.

Thank you and your team of coaches (Paul, Nina, Bob, etc) for making this year’s experience so special for him.”

My Journey with Pure Motion Golf 

by Jordan Rothman  –  Full Scholarship from Kansas University USA

From Junior lessons to Order of Merit to winning tournaments and ending up in the USA!


 I started playing golf when I was 11 years old. My dad saw potential in me so he took a video of my swing and showed it to Coach Lana. She saw I had talent and told my dad that I should start with lessons as soon as possible. That is really when my whole life changed because that is when I found my passion.

I improved a lot in a short amount of time which pushed me to work harder because I loved the idea of getting better every day, seeing myself hit a little bit further or a little bit straighter. I started playing in the Order of Merit Tuesday competitions which introduced me to competitive golf on a small scale. It was a great way to get into a competitive mindset without feeling overwhelmed.

Over the years I achieved many things in South Africa and won a couple of big golf tournaments too. When I was 15, I won the SA women’s match play and that’s when doors opened for me, I started getting messages and emails from universities in America asking me to play for and study with them. None of this would ever have been possible without Coach Lana helping me and guiding me to success.

When I started, I fell in love with the game and what helped me a lot was having friends at the golf course who had the same passion and goals as me. Practicing alone can sometimes be a little harder which is why it is always good to have people around you to practice with and to have people who are always pushing you to play your best. Pure Motion became my second home because I was there pretty much every day. I made friends that will always be a part of my life.

Today after a long journey of ups and downs I made it to America where I am representing the University of Kansas on the golf course and getting a degree in Sports Management. I am still getting coached by Coach Lana even on the other side of the world and I am still in contact with most of my friends that I played with when I started.
