The Central Coast Academy of Sport (CCAS) has announced that Magenta Shores Golf and Country Club have aligned their support to a new three-year commitment to the Academy’s Callaway Golf Program.
Magenta Shores is the only private golf facility in the region and is keen to provide opportunities for junior golfers through a partnership with the Central Coast Academy of Sport.
The Magenta Shores’ course was designed as a challenging, par 72-hole layout, built and shaped in the famous Scottish links style.
The course was ranked 23rd by Australian Golf Digest in the 2016 Top 100 Golf Courses in Australia.
Mr Ian Robilliard, the CCAS Managing Director, said: “Magenta Shores is a premier golf facility and to be able to offer the CCAS Golf Athletes access to one of Australia’s top golf destinations, provides the program a huge lift.
“Our thanks to the Board of Directors and Management at Magenta Shores for supporting the athletes within the golf program,” Mr Robilliard said.
“Often young golfers have restricted playing rights, so to have this opportunity provided to our organisation for use by the golf athletes is greatly appreciated and very important,” he said.
“To see a club committed to helping younger players is fantastic and I take my hat off to them and to other clubs who have a similar focus on the development of junior golfers.
“Just recently, Magenta Shores provided playing spots in the Magenta Shores Pro AM, this initiative shows that they are certainly true to their word about helping junior players.”
Mr Rob Hurley, the General Manager of Golf at Magenta Shores, said of the three-year agreement: “Magenta Shores Golf and Country Club is committed to the growth of the game, and we believe that aligning ourselves with the CCAS to provide access to our facility is the first of many steps in the right direction.”
