Junior Development Model
The Junior Development Model shows the journey of a Junior Golfer at Royal Fremantle, entering the Junior Academy as a beginner, to becoming Professionals at the highest level.
The Academy allows new students to learn the fundamentals of golf in a fun, safe supportive group environment.
Through the Academy players will progress into Junior Members, gaining a handicap and competing in weekly Junior club competitions,
Upon further development, members will be invited to be a part of the clubs Junior Development Squad, nurturing players to becoming Elite Amateurs through a holistic approach. The purpose of this squad is to provide Royal Fremantle Juniors with the tools to become world-class players

- Numerous Club Members – Sunday Junior Competitions

JUNIOR DEVELOPMENT OFFICER – OLIVER GOSS
Joining Royal Fremantle back in 2000, Oliver under the guidance of member and father, Darren Goss, was able to become a clear star here at the Club.
Taking out back to back to back Junior Club Championships in 2009,2010 and 2011, Oliver did the double and won the 2011 Men’s Club Championships as well.
In 2012, he went even better, as he became one of the only Amateurs to win the WA State Am and the WA Open in the same year.
2013 marked the end of Oliver’s time in Australia, as he received a full scholarship to play college golf for the University of Tennessee in America. Whilst over there he played in numerous National Events, the most significant being his performance in the 2013 US Amateur, where he came up agonisingly short and runner-up, to eventual world star, Matthew Fitzpatrick.
Although Runner-up was enough to secure himself a spot in both the 2014 US Masters and the 2014 US Open.
The Masters was where Oliver really showed the world who he was, making the cut and winning the Low-Amateur and receiving the Silver Cup.
Turning Pro after the US Open in 2014, Oliver got 5 starts on the PGA Tour, where he was leading in his 2nd event as a Pro on the PGA Tour after 2 days, paired with Marc Leishman.
Currently, we are fortunate enough to have Oliver back at Royal Fremantle, where he is the Junior Development Officer, utilising his skills and experiences to help guide the Juniors of today to future glory.
