Yarrawonga Golf Camp

A week full of putting, sand wedging, mini-golfing, good food, and new friends. Over the course of Camp Week, we learnt how to drive a ball off a tee, how to hit a ball out of a bunker, and we had heaps of fun playing mini-golf in Mulwala.

On our first day up at Yarrawonga, we practised chipping, trying to land our balls into a cone target. A highlight of Camp was certainly the mini-golf competition, where we split into groups to try and crack the mini-golf course record. We also had multiple people making a hole in one! In addition to all the golf we played, a definite highlight was having our final dinner at the ‘Sebel’ in Yarrawonga. Not only did we eat delicious pizza, but we were able to overlook the picturesque Lake Mulwala and the Black Bull golf course where we had played all week.

At Black Bull, we had multiple lessons and utilised their driving range, where we were able to hit as far as we could off the tee. It was great to see how much our technique improved over the week, and we were able to hit much further by the end of our camp. As a Year 12 student, it was lovely getting to know some of the Year 11 students who have recently joined Senior Homestead.

After our long day of golf, we would watch the football or play games in the recreation room at our resort. Golf camp offered a great way to escape from the busy academic year and to also forge friendships with students from Year 11 and 12 alike. Thank you so much to Mr Mills, Ms Kawashima and Mr Higgins for making our week so much fun!
