About Junior Membership

Once a Member, juniors have access to all the Club’s facilities, including Clubhouse, change rooms and practice areas. Our aim is to teach and mentor our juniors to get a handicap in order to play competitions (on Sundays) and participate in our junior major events, culminating in the Junior Club Championships. Juniors are then able to play in competitions held at other clubs.

How to Join

If your child is interested in joining, we encourage you to make contact with one of the following people:

  • Junior Development Coordinator – Simon Winter
  • Women’s Captain – Jane Metcalf
  • Men’s Captain – Graeme Finlayson
  • Membership Officer – Christine Henderson

To contact Christine our Membership Officer: membership@cottesloegc.com or phone 9384 3222.

For a junior who is just starting out in golf, we recommend participating in two or more junior clinics, before considering applying for a membership.  We can provide equipment for these sessions if necessary, and can then assist in purchasing equipment when you are ready for the next step. Speak to our friendly Golf Shop team when the time is right for you.

Our Golf Shop also offers expert fitting sessions with top brand clubs and can offer competitive price matching for Members.
