NCAS Development Squad – Graduation Day
Posted on: 30 April
After another exciting day at the Ocean Shores Country Club, our 1918/19 NCAS Development Squad completed their coaching experience and will now move on to put into practice all the skills developed over the last six sessions, The concept of this squad came together about 5 – 6 years ago and gives a number of young golfers the opportunity to be guided by Chris Graham (PGA, Ocean Shores CC) and his team on the finer points of the game. From the feedback received after the last session on Sunday, each participant has progressed in their understanding of the fundamentals and technical skills required to improve their game.
Squad members this year came from a number of different NRDGA clubs: Ella Brittain (Mullumbimby), Pia Brittain, (Mullumbimby), Daniel McKenzie (Ballina), Jack Pache (Coolangatta & Tweed Heads), Franceska Payne (Ballina), Oliver Payne (Ballina), Stella Payne (Ballina), Brielle Wenham (Casino), Talise Wenham (Casino), Callum Wines (Coolangatta & Tweed Heads) and Harrison Wood (Murwillumbah).
Oliver Payne took home the award for the “Most Improved” participant during the 1918/19 season.
We hope to see the dividends from this wonderful group of young golfers in the continuing season of NRDGA Junior Open Days.
