The new competition season for the Junior Section commences on 9th April with the ‘April Medal’, and is followed on 23rd April with the ‘HDB Robinson Rose Bowl’.
Competitions are open to all junior members, and are a great way for new juniors, or existing junior members who have not played in competitions previously, to meet other members of the section. We also encourage non-playing parents to get involved, and to ‘walk the course’ with their children. Although there is obviously a competitive element for juniors who want to gain a handicap, or reduce (!), the competitions also have a social element, so please don’t be put off by the word ‘competition’.
Tee times are reserved from 9.15-10.15am on Saturday competition days. For the April competitions we are trialling the ‘old system’ of meeting at 9.00am and allocating groups by the junior organisers, rather than pre-booked tee times on BRS. This will be reviewed at the end of April.
On Saturday 23rd April, after the competition, we will be holding a presentation at 2.00pm for award winners from 2021. We have had several attempts of holding this presentation but have been thwarted by ‘Covid’ each time. There will be a buffet, and parents are welcome to attend. We also want to encourage all junior members to attend as we will also be discussing matters relating to the new season, including rules advice, and handicap protocols.
The Junior section has ‘Whatsapp’ and email groups where we circulate information during the season. We do not contact junior members directly without parental consent, and we always copy parents on any social media communications.
Parents of Junior members can also view ‘Safeguarding’ policies and protocols on the home page of the Club website by pressing the ‘SafeGolf’ tab.
For further information I can be contacted by mobile on 07775-580117 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
Hopefully we can look forward to an uninterrupted season!
