This national competition comprises two rounds in which juniors test their skills at putting, chipping, pitching, bunkers and long shots with “Rookie” category for the under 12s and “Tour” category” for older juniors. The golf club has participated in this scheme for a number of years and the first round was held on the Practice ground on the 26 April.
Unfortunately only a few juniors were available but the standard was extremely high with our three older juniors all attaining the highest “Platinum” standard. Noteworthy was James Wadsworth (2 handicap) who was not content to hit balls through the required 150 metre targets from the top of the Practice field but blasted most of his shots out of the ground and in to the woodland beyond!!
It was good to see one of our new cadet members, seven year old, Zachary Clough, taking part and helping out – well done Zach.
James Wadsworth 45/50, Declan Roberts 38/50, James Sharp 37/50.
The next round is on 24th May
