The Spring/ Summer Training programme for the Juniors has been progressing well under the leadership of Danny Harris. We have attracted 3 new juniors which hopefully will continue to stay with us and develop into active players with handicaps. They are now actively pursuing getting handicaps , which will allow them to play in our competitions.
Our Grass Roots competition is scheduled for Monday 19th June in the evening. Notices have been posted in the clubhouse to attract volunteers to play.
JUNIOR FUN EVENING
As part of the Junior Sections objective to find new players, a fun evening was arranged and took place on 30th May. In the afternoon a medal competition was held for those with Congu handicaps and a 9 hole stableford competition was played by the younger juniors from the new blue tee boxes. This was followed up with a social evening for juniors, parents and friends when teams made up of parents and juniors, undertook 6 different disciplines including crazy golf, putting, boules, chipping, bunker play and a quiz. A total of 26 people attended the fun night which finished with a supper and drinks. A lot of thanks goes out to Jan Board, Gill Lobb, Jane Leigh , Dave Board and Billy Ray, who organized the evening. Hopefully we will attract new juniors when the word gets around about the fun and events which took place that evening. Lastly a warm welcome to our three new young members Elliot Herd, Harrison Young and George Tanner
