Australian Capital Territory, Monaro

The Territory

The ACT Monaro District includes 10 clubs in the ACT and 15 clubs in the surrounding Monaro region.   All clubs have junior membership and welcome junior players.  There are many very good golfers from this region playing nationally and internationally as amateurs and professionals.

The district is located in the southern tablelands, ACT and high country NSW.  We are known for our hot dry summers, delightful autumn's and spring's and very cold winters.  It is not uncommon to contend with sun, rain, hail and snow in the one round of golf, which is character building for golfers in our territory.  Autumn is a lovely time to play golf in this region with brisk early mornings, warm sunny days and beautiful lcolours on the trees.  The air is usually still, clear and fresh.

In our district we have the South East Region Academy of Sport (SERAS) and the ACT Academy of Sport (ACTAS).

The Manager

Golf has been a major part of Sue’s sporting life since she was a teenager.  Her father taught her and her brother how to play the game.  They were members of Braidwood Golf Club, a nine hole course, where the friendly lady members would look after and encourage her.  There were no other girls playing golf at Braidwood at the time, only a few boys.  Sue would travel to town to play golf every Saturday and once during the week her and her brother would walk from school to the golf club to practice.  Most of her practice was done in the paddock at the front of their home among tussocks, sheep and the occasional snake.  Sue is currently member of Royal Canberra Golf Club.  She loves golf because it is a sport you can play at any time and it is a great challenge.  Sue especially enjoys encouraging new golfers and sharing in their enjoyment of the game.  For Sue, it has been a wonderful way to meet and make good friends.

Sue feels her work with JNJG is wonderfully satisfying.  She is able to reconnect with many 'old timers' who she once played golf with around the district.  She also gets to meet those who are working extremely hard on encouraging and developing young people in the game.  These people work with a complete passion, giving their time and effort to the nurturing of many charming young people playing at all levels of golf.  She has been very fortunate to meet many impressive junior golfers through clubs and school golf throughout the district.  Sue enjoys being able to support, in any way possible, junior golfers, club junior development officers and golfers in general throughout the region.

Sue is amazed at the strength of momentum junior golf is experiencing in our region and looks forward to seeing further benefits for young golfers as a result of the dedication of individuals and clubs in ACT Monaro.
