Golfer Receives Scholarship

Golfer Receives Scholarship

Koroit Golfer Chris Roberts has been recognised for his efforts and has been awarded a playing scholarship with The Metropolitan Golf Club in Melbourne.

After hearing about the scholarship program last year at a schools competition, Chris thought that it would be a great opportunity for him to develop his skills and ultimately – play more golf. Chris is a senior member of the South West Academy of Sport Golf Program, where he is not only an athlete, but also a mentor to the younger athletes within the program. Through this program Chris develops his skills and tactics of the sport under the guidance of head coach Brook Salmon.

Chris found out he was a scholarship recipient the start of July, and is really excited about his new adventure – all focussed on improving his game.

The scholarship recipients receive coaching, playing rights, free use of the incredible and state of the art practice facilities at The Metropolitan ad the opportunity to play in pennant teams – all these experiences are priceless and unmeasurable, especially for a regional athletes.

Chris is excited about the opportunity and feels that it will change his game and style of play – he is putting a big focus on his swing. He also notes that playing on an elite course will give him that experience that smaller regional clubs unfortunately cant.

Chris is so thankful to The Metropolitan Golf Club for the opportunity to be able to take advantage of such a prestigious program.

The South West Academy of Sport is proud to share opportunities such as these and other partnerships that they share with elite clubs and programs in Victoria.
