South West Hants Junior League (SWHJL). 3 fixtures were played during the month of August at Bramshaw, Royal Winchester and Romsey. This completed the matches for this season. Although we finished bottom of the league, there was very little difference in the bottom 5 teams of the 9 which made up the league. Discussions are already taking place on the future format of the junior league. A greater emphasis will be placed on the younger new golfers which would suit Wellow better.
Another match in the Poppy Golf competition took place against Corhampton GC at home. After a very close match Wellow won the tie by 2 holes. This puts us into the Quarter Finals of a National competition, where we have been drawn at home to Chippenham GC The match is scheduled for Sunday 2nd October.
The Summer Junior programme, run by Danny Harris, has continued over the August Summer Holidays. On average we have had 7 junior golfers participating. Danny will be putting together another programme to cover the Autumn period.
Some of golf balls recovered from the Conservation hole have been cleaned and put on sale in the Pro shop to help boost Junior Funds.
