Junior Coaching

The Junior Academy is thriving at Stonecutters Ridge Golf Club.

On Saturdays, Glen Haynes and Steve Gannon run golf clinics for the youngsters at the Academy. The coaching is designed to allow the juniors to improve their golfing ability and develop life skills.

Much of the golf coaching is 'Task Led', meaning that the children are often set golfing challenges. Rather than being bombarded with technical instruction, the young stars are encouraged to be creative, experiment and develop naturally.

Studies have shown that we all learn complex motor skills most effectively with an external focus, for example, the target! the golf ball or the clubhead. With this in mind, Glen and Steve's effective coaching techniques are an ideal platform for golf improvement, not just for kids but for all golfers seeking to improve!

The coaching facilities at Stonecutters are possibly the best in Western Sydney, with couch grass driving range, 2 Putting Greens, Chipping Green with Practice Bunker. We also have, of course, the Greg Norman-designed, Championship Golf Course, home of the NSW Open. These wonderful facilities are utilised for all at the Junior Academy. Every Saturday from 2:00pm, during school term, the Cadets compete in their own 'shortened' Course Challenge, playing a different format each event.

Glen has many years experience coaching golfers of all levels and ages. He is continually studying to further his knowledge of golf techniques and learning methods.

All aspects of the game are covered, with emphasis on a 'Can do' mindset. Glen believes it is important for all golfers to learn from every shot, the sound and feel of the strike, and from the flight of the golf ball. Thus, we can truly begin to understand how to control ourselves and our game.
