Whakatipu Youth  Golf  Development Fund

Golf Development Fund (10.5 x 14.9 cm).jpg

The Whakatipu Youth Golf Development Fund aims to grow youth golf in the Whakatipu thanks to the Whakatipu Junior Golf Club Charitable Trust (WJGC) and the Wombles Golfing Society.

The Development Fund will be available for youth players aged between 5-18, and can be used for coaching, competition costs, travel costs or Futures Golf annual membership costs. While the focus is on coaching, development and competition costs, in some cases  golf equipment will be covered.

The original purpose of the WJGC to support youth golf in the Whakatipu was so successful it has been taken on by Golf NZ and rebranded as Futures Whakatipu, so the WJGC had accumulated funds that needed to be used.  In addition, the Wombles Golfing Society has been quietly raising money for Junior Golf over the past few years.  These funds are being pooled and will be used to make annual distributions via the Development Fund.

 The assessment of the applications will be handled by the trustees of the WJGC and a representative from Futures Whakatipu.

In the first instance, applications for the Development Fund open on 29th January and close on 13th February 2024, however in future years, there will be multiple funding rounds each year.

Award Amount:  Up to $10,000 per year

Maximum per recipient: $500 per year.

Timeline and application process: 2 funding rounds each year.   Initial round: 29 Jan-13 Feb 2024      Second Round: 1-20 July 2024

Eligibility Requirements: Players aged 5-18 years who are members, or looking to be members, of Futures Golf. 

APPLICATIONS OPEN HERE next on 1 July 2024
