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.
Tom Humphreys, Cornish College’s Property Manager, is responsible for the course design and construction. Tom has incorporated a creek, bridges, seating, tee signs and native plantings. Phil Kingston, a school parent, has also donated valuable time to develop the two new holes. We have also had help from many parents and local businesses, including Anco Turf who donated the turf for our tees.
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.
