Golf Program

The Cornish Golf Program aims to develop golf skills and enjoyment of the game. The program has a particular emphasis on character development and leadership through the core values.

Sean Kirschenberg and Nadina Light provide high-quality coaching. Students will be assessed using skills tests, observations of program values and demonstrated leadership. Students will also develop fundamental movement skills that benefit all sports.

The program will take place either on our driving range (east of the main car park), on the Cornish Links Golf Course (at rear of staff car park) or on the tennis courts. There will also be occasions where the students will be required to be at an external venue (Advanced Group). Parents will be given advance notice about these occasions.

If a golf lesson is cancelled due to inclement weather a text message will be sent to parents.

Students are to wear the College PE uniform or Cornish Golf polo shirt to each lesson. Cornish Golf polo shirts can be purchased from the Uniform Shop.

We have a commitment to maintaining a safe environment. We have a highly popular and growing program in which we provide the best environment for students to achieve their full potential.

Please make contact with coaching staff before taking your child home from golf lessons each evening. If you have arranged for your child to be picked up by another family, please contact Sean Kirschenberg regarding this arrangement via email at golf@cornishcollege.vic.edu.au or text him on 0418 552 668.

Cornish Links Golf Course

Our course is specifically designed for children and we are very grateful for the assistance and generous support we have received from the community. We commenced our course by developing seven holes and, in 2015, we developed two further holes (nine holes in total). The two newest holes are 200 metres long and provide some challenges for our students.

 

Although some of our holes are short, they can be quite challenging. Our golf course uses ‘big holes’, which allows the use of golf balls or tennis balls. Tennis balls are suitable for our younger early learning students.

Students can learn many great life skills from golf. Golf encourages students to practise, learn etiquette and develop persistence. It rewards integrity and is also a ‘game for life’ that has many social, mental and physical benefits. Golf handicaps allow children to compete with adults or beginners to compete with professionals. It also allows children to enjoy the outdoor environment. Having fun is critical to the success of our golf program.

We have future plans to develop a student committee to look at many aspects of golf, the golf program and the golf course. This may include golf handicaps, special events, course developments, charity events and golf competitions.
