Junior News 25th August

Fairly quiet on the Junior front - coaching and playing has continued on Tuesdays and Sundays - cadets are graduating to playing on the Derbyshire Futures Tour. We have a potential three new members and, associated with this, we have potentially three parents who want to join as off-peak members - so encouraging cadets has a positive knock-on effect on adult membership. The majority of cadets have achieved a single figure handicap on the practice ground course and have graduated to playing six holes from the 150 yd markers; four have achieved a single figure handicap against a Par 24 and have graduated to playing off the 200 yd markers. On Tuesday the Juniors were given an excellent coaching session by Shane on how to play out of a bunker following which Nick gave them instruction on how to repair the bunker after playing.
