Golf is unique from other sports because players learn values like honesty and responsibility by calling penalties on themselves and reporting their own score. The sport is a perfect platform for helping youth develop character because just like in life, players experience the highs and lows of the game. Port Macquarie Golf Club is committed to providing programmes and opportunities for children and young adults to learn and enjoy golf.

Geoff Staines Junior Development Fund
The Club has in place a Junior Development Fund created by the now deceased past Director Geoff Staines. 100 members pay $5 each week to be placed in a raffle with the winning member receiving a random drawn multiple of $5 and surplus funds allocated to the fund. The funds are then made available upon application to junior members to assist in playing tournaments, coaching and game development.
The application form for making a claim is available by contacting reception firstname.lastname@example.org.
