Golf Lessons and Coaching in Melbourne

For friendly and accessible golf lessons in Melbourne, take a look at the many coaching options available at Box Hill Golf Club, including junior, men’s, ladies and beginner golf.

Junior Coaching

Junior Coaching Program

Our junior golf program has three tiers, each level having a corresponding colour to represent the different abilities. At the end of each session, the kids will attempt a skills challenge to assess their current ability. We use these assessments to help measure their improvement over time. It will give everyone the knowledge of what coaching and practice will be required to move up to the next level.

There will be a junior coaching clinics running through most school holidays aimed at those looking to begin playing or those who have just started. The program is open to anyone between the ages of 8 and 16.

Ladies Beginner Programs

Box Hill Golf Club runs beginner programs twice a year for anyone interested in playing golf. We understand that golf can be quite intimidating for a beginner golfer, that’s why we have devised a program which can take you all the way from complete beginner to a confident golfer. Following Golf Victoria’s program of Give Golf A Go, these beginner clinics are a great way to meet new golfing friends while in a fun atmosphere.
