Fraserburgh Juniors win first ever challenge match

Junior Golf is now becoming extremely popular with the local youngsters in the area, with widespread opportunites for them to get involved at almost any age.

Golf has much to offer, and all local clubs are extremely keen to attract many new members.

Exercise, etiquette, skill, fitness, commitment, dedication, confidence, friendship, discipline, and communication skills are only a few very important benefits learned from the game of golf.

To promote Junior Golf, Rosehearty Juniors and Fraserburgh Juniors decided to have a challenge match, both home and away, which would highlight the game to many parents, and their children, who might consider taking up the game.

The Juniors from both clubs were all focused on the match, which was sponsored by local couple Graham and Fiona Whyte from SFC Designs in Fraserburgh, who donated a magnificent trophy which will be played for by both clubs on an annual basis.

Players ages ranged from 8 to 18, with handicaps ranging from 9 to 36.

Both the Youngsters and their coaches took part with 36 competitors taking to both courses, enabling each club to host this new event.

The format, being a two-person texas scramble, incorporated youngsters from all levels of the game, which also mixed the teams up, giving everyone an equal chance.

The excitement was incredible in the lead up to each match, as being part of a team was something totally new to most of the players.

Most of the matches were really close, but Fraserburgh Junior Section proved to be the strongest on the day, but the enthusiasm and excitement generated from the event for the competitors meant that they were all winners.

On behalf of Fraserburgh Juniors, Captain Craig Barbour was very proud to be presented with the trophy for the first time by Mrs Fiona Whyte from SFC Designs, who were delighted to support the event, and were very complimentary on how much Junior Golf has to offer young people in the local communities.
