Golf

The South West Academy of Sports’ Golf program aims to provide support and training for regionally based athletes. With the aid of the Victorian Golf Foundation, athletes represent the academy in a broad range of competitions and tournaments throughout the year.

The number one focus for all academy programs is athlete education; part of this in the golf program is working with local professional coaches and state/national elite coaches.

 Part of the athlete education for golf is sports specific sessions; looking at increasing athletes ability both on and off the fairway. Our focus is to build the athlete through education and weekly training sessions but to also keep them community minded and build them as future leaders.
