“Often my non-golfing friends pass up an offer to play on courses because of dress-code concerns, personal lack of skill, and investment of time and money,” he says.

“A club that smashes these barriers and offers unmatched value is a short, nine-hole public course called Bulimba Golf Club, tucked away in a quiet suburban pocket beside the Brisbane River.”

2018 01 valdiVALDI Indriks, 4, is keen to follow in his big brother Archie’s footsteps.

Archie has made headlines in the South-East Advertiser for his feats at Bulimba Golf Course. At just 9, Archie has gone up against adult players to win club championships and already plays with a handicap of 20 on the big courses.

Valdi is among the young players taking up the sport for the first time at Bulimba Golf Club’s new First Swing program.

The club has called on the program to boost their junior ranks.

Run by Jay Simpson and other Australian PGA Professionals coaches, the program started at Bulimba in September with Thursday classes and has been growing every week.

First Swing delivers programs all over southeast Queensland, offering classes for ages 3-6 and 7-12.

“Anyone can play golf,” Mr Simpson said.

“It’s the perfect sport that encourages parents to be involved in a sport their kids love and be on the course to play or support.”
