PEREGIAN Springs Golf Club’s junior golf program is going from strength to strength with Cassie Porter headed for the Amateur Athletic Union Veritas Junior Olympic Games Golf Championship in the USA.
The 12-year-old won the right to represent her country after winning her age division at the Australian Junior Age Division Golf Championship at Mercure Capricorn Resort at Yeppoon.
She carded excellent rounds of 75-83-78.
“Cassie has risen up through the ranks of the Peregian Springs Golf Club’s junior development program and was the recipient of the club’s junior sponsorship award in 2014, which paid for her golf lessons and membership,” said CEO Declan McCollam.
“Cassie has had an outstanding year winning a number of junior golf events at the club and around the state.
The Junior Olympic Games Golf Championship is at Tustin Ranch Golf Club in Orange County and Brookside Golf Course in Pasadena, California, USA.
The opening ceremony will be at the LA Angels Baseball Stadium and the medal ceremony will be at Downtown Disney, both in Anaheim.
The junior golfers will have time to have fun away from the golf course while they are there.
“It has been my dream to play golf in the US,” Cassie said. “I can’t wait.”
