Keilor Golf Course has invited the community to join the All Abilities Free Golf Clinics which will run over five sessions in March thanks to support from local businesses and Golf Australia.

The program, led by AAA All Abilities PGA qualified golf professional Scott Wearne, will take place every Thursday in March starting at 10 a.m.

Wearne has played in golf tournaments all over the world, including the 1998 Calgary Open where he won the competition with a record 22 under par.

Keilor Golf Course Center manager Jack McDonald said it was a great opportunity for people in the community to come and try golf.

“It’s about developing the sport, getting them comfortable with a golf club, having fun and being physically active,” McDonald said.

The free clinic was made possible through the support of local businesses who have embraced the club’s sponsorship initiative.

“At our golf course, we have a charitable sponsorship program,” he said.

“Local businesses can sponsor a hole on the golf course, and with funds raised, the club provides free programming to the local community.

“This free program is a result of our community’s support of our efforts to make golf more accessible to everyone.”

The club looks forward to the clinics and hopes to see more golfers in the future.

“We really hope to see more people playing golf,” the center manager said.

“Golf is a sport that has been proven to improve the physical and mental health of participants, so we want to see more people get out on the fairways to enjoy the sport and look after their well-being in the process.”
