Killara Golf Club Scholarship

Junior Golf Development Program

The Killara Golf Club has launched a Junior Golf Development Program.

To assist with the Club’s fundraising efforts, the Program has been registered with the Australian Sports Foundation Ltd (ASF).

Some areas which will be funded include:

  • Resourcing of the KGC Cadet Program
  • Scholarships for promising young players to assist recipients cover costs such as:
             – Competition fees and travel expenses
             – Specialist coaching 
             – Equipment and sports science expertise
