Youngsters love to compete, and practice a lot, becoming a much better player, and reducing there handicap as much as they possibly can.

We will help them achieve this, by offering guidance, advise and setting out Skills Challenges on all parts of their game.

FUTURE: The Junior golfers have been hitting the dunes in force over the season.

So if you are a member, or thinking about becoming a member, please do not be a stranger, and get in touch, because golf can be so much more fun if you are competing and practising regularly.

We are all very impressed with the commitment and dedication that all of our competitors have shown throughout the winter, by turning up every week without fail, not only doing battle with each other, but also taking on the extremely harsh conditions that they had to play in, without complaining.

The format was Stableford on the Rosehill course, with points being awarded to the top 4, and each week the winner would proudly go home with the CRT Silver Claret Jug, which they would play for again the following week.

The eventual winner will get a beautiful CRT Silver Cup to keep for a year, and prizes for the top 3 will be presented at our official prize giving later in the year.

WINNER: Alex Ritchie won the Wee Divot section.

The most consistent Junior player throughout the winter, and winning the Claret Jug five times, was 12-year-old Brad Murray, who put on a very impressive display week after week.

Brad is totally focused on his game, and seems to step up a gear when the pressure is on. Many congratulations to all our Juniors who played in the winter league, but especially to Brad who turned out to be the eventual winner. Very well done Brad.

7-year-old Alex Ritchie won the Wee Divot section on the Rosehill Course.

This is seriously one to watch for the future, as he is showing so much potential, at such a young age. This is Alex`s first year in Junior Golf, and is really looking forward to playing other courses during the summer, especially competing in the Paul Lawrie Foundation for young and promising young golfers.

Easter Round Robin Match Play.

The” Joe Taylor Cup ” is the Easter Round Robin Match Play competition, and will keep some of the Juniors busy over the holiday period, with matches being played daily.

The winner of the two sections will play each other in the final. Good luck to all the entrants.
