THE Sunraysia Academy of Sport golf program in full swing now with the athletes attending weekly strength-and-conditioning sessions, training sessions under PGA professional Michael McKenzie and on-course practice rotating weekly between Mildura Golf Resort and Riverside Golf Club.

The athletes have already shown great results in club opens this year with a 75 off the stick by Madeline Jukes at the Mildura Golf Resort Open the best score so far.
