2018 Golf Program

The Gippsland Sports Academy Golf Program, proudly supported by Victorian Golf Foundation will act as the peak golf program throughout Gippsland.  The G.S.A gratefully appreciates the support that the Yallourn Golf Club provide with regular access to their venue for training throughout the year.

The Academy team will be coordinated by the Gippsland Sports Academy Golf Advisory Panel and Program Staff and will provide a development pathway to the Victorian Institute of Sport for regionally based athletes.
