Junior Golf

Great to see so many juniors turning out on Monday mornings for the various competitions. Thanks and congratulations are due to the adult organisers and their helpers who devote so much of their time to the promotion of the game among the juniors. The Club has a deserved reputation for encouraging young golfers and long may this continue. The tees are reserved on Monday mornings from  10.00. Parents  and even grandparents are encouraged to bring along the youngsters and enjoy an exciting game in The Glenns.
