As part of GolfWA’s first ‘Festival of Golf’ in Esperance, WA Golf Foundation funding allowed Rob Farley to deliver 23 hours of free coaching for more than 100 existing or prospective members of Esperance Golf Club.
WAGF also provided $1600 for eight sets of junior clubs (both right and left-handed) to provide aspiring juniors with access to quality equipment without any financial outlay, while the costs for 14 Community Instructors to complete their accreditation was also covered.
Taking place from May 1-7, the Festival incorporated the Crunch&Sip Roadshow for juniors, school visits and multiple coaching clinics for children and adults at Esperance Golf Club. More than 800 children and adults were involved in sessions throughout the week.
“The festival was a massive success and one that we hope will have a lasting impact in Esperance and the surrounding area,” said GolfWA Game Development& Performance Manager Marc Pike.
