Junior Coaching is lead by NZPGA Professional Dominic Sainsbury though Wellness Golf

Our golf program is based on years of working in the area of young players development. It is based on developing the skills that lead to growing a love for the game and making playing golf achievable for everyone. By managing the environment very carefully we have created a structure that will help young players develop their potential whilst achieving success at every stage. We have created the foundation for future success and longterm participation in “a sport for life”, Golf!

More than just coaching, our program is about meeting the needs of players and parents by including

Competition, Organized Practice and Social Elements. We don’t just teach golf we build a whole Golf environment that inspires and motivates players to immerse themselves in the game.


Through the Wellness golf program young players develop all the skills necessary to have fun on the golf course. More than just technical golf skills; It includes development of tactical skills, key physical skills,

and the development of behavioral traits to love playing the game.

We ensure that players are ready both physically and emotionally to love the challenges that come with playing our game
