With club applications for the Australian Golf Foundation (AGF) Junior Girls Golf Scholarship program closing on the 11th of November, Golf Australia encourages clubs to submit.
One long-term supporter of the program is PGA Professional, Sarah Douglass-Norris.
Since the scholarship program's inaugural year in 2021, Sarah has advanced girl's golf through funding from the Australian Golf Foundation at The Grange and Flagstaff Hill Golf Club in South Australia.
"As a coach I feel like everyone is winning from the AGF scholarship program," said Douglass-Norris.
"It has brought so many girls and families to golf clubs.
"Plus, it has been great to see the members embracing volunteer roles," she said.
With a new group of potential scholarship recipients already lined up for 2024, Douglass-Norris has done a terrific job with this year's intake.
"We are close to getting everyone a handicap this year.
"The highlight has been one of our girls winning the 12-and-under state final and making the team to go to Perth! "The AGF is a fabulous idea - we are very thankful such a program and opportunity for girls in golf exists."
