“The development of Juniors at PMGA has been exceptional with both Provincial and International representation by boys and girls, several of whom are currently enjoying prestigious golf scholarships in the USA. Coaching starts at grass roots level for young beginners, moving to group and individual lessons as they progress.

These lessons include encouraging camaraderie and good sportsmanship – foundations of the sport. For the more established players, we will ensure they do not forget the fundamental purpose of golf – enjoyment. We pride ourselves in sharing our juniors’ achievements and love of the game.”

Grassroots
Ages 4 to 6 yrs

This phase is mainly focused on children new to the game.

Ages: 4 to 6 years old.

Small groups are essential to part of their development at this age. Our groups are no bigger than 6 juniors per group, are 30 minutes long, and run weekly during public school terms.

SNAG® will set the basics with fun and interactive games and can be done indoors.

Coaches will give the parents regular feedback on your child’s development and parents can request progress reports.

Ultimately, we will transition them from SNAG® to normal golf equipment.

What is SNAG®?

It is “First Touch” equipment that is fun, brightly coloured and easy to use. It can be used by children as young as 4, and similarly, advancing years have no barriers. It is a fabulous golf teaching and learning tool and definitely not a toy.

Youth Golf
Ages 7+

These lessons are ideal for juniors aged 7 and older, both beginners and those playing for pure fun and enjoyment.

Our groups are no bigger than 6 juniors per group, are 55 minutes long, and run weekly during public school terms.

FOCUS GROUPS
Our Focus Groups are groups set up by each coach for a specific set of juniors.

For example, an advanced girl’s group, where the coach can take the girls to the next level and play on the course with them. The juniors in these groups are like-minded and want to achieve similar goals.

Individual
Lessons

Individualised lessons are ideal for juniors slightly older, more advanced and wanting to take their game to a more advanced level.

Lessons are 30 minutes per session and scheduled weekly with the coach.

Video Swing Analysis with CoachNow is used to help the player see, feel and implement with better understanding.

Our coaches plan the progression and programme of the young players, to give them a map toward their goals. Lessons are pre-planned with purpose.

Jordan Rotham Past Junior Academy Member

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.

COMMENT:
“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.”
