JNJG aims to get as many young people involved in the game of golf as possible. JNJG Territory Managers utilise the MyGolf Schools Program to train teachers at schools throughout the state on the basics of golf instruction. This training can then be passed onto the students and hopefully generate plenty of interest in the game.
Last year a large number of teachers took part in the professional learning course – MyGolf Schools 1. They learned the basics of the golf grip, stance and swing as well as the very important safety aspects required when young people learn to play golf.
