After what feels like the longest Winter ever…. it was wonderful to have a decent day on Saturday for the kids to enjoy the 9 hole chip n putt event without freezing to death!
We had a super turn out of 16 youngsters aged form 4 to 13 years old and some great golf played too.
It really is about taking part and we encourage everyone to try to beat their own personal best, which is why we run the eclectic competition too.
Don’t forget these events are completely free to play in and you do not have to be on the junior coaching at Dunes to take part. We are on a mission to get more kids out playing and reducing the amount of time spent in front of screens!
Thanks to our amazing sponsors photogifts.co.uk we have a superb prize that is personalised for the overall best score each week.
This week it was a really cool mug filled with sweet treats that has the date of the event printed on it so it’s something the winner can treasure forever!
Winner of the mug with the score of the day was Alexander Wisely on 28. Alexander is making this a regular habit as the victory sees him sitting 8 points clear at the top of the Order of Merit with 15 points. He is also top of the Eclectic table with a total of 22. Mattthew Cardno finished in 2nd on 29 and Billy Myers was third on 30. Billy managed to improve a couple on his eclectic score so has moved to within 3 shots of Alexander.
In the 4 to 8 year old group, Riley Whyte took the top spot ona countbakc from Kameron Brown as both players scored a 36. Riley won the special flourescent golf ball as a prize for his victory. In 3rd place was Mason McRobbie on 39.

I am delighted that these events are proving popular as we continue our mission to get more kids out golfing and away from computer screens.
The format allows for the kids to experience a competitive game in a safe environment and eventually to membership of one of the local clubs.
They are completely free of charge and all equipment can be provided for no extra cost.
