This event is designed to provide youngsters with the thrill and excitement of playing in a golf competition. We hope to inspire youngsters to start playing golf and to play more through becoming engaged by wanting to beat their own personal best scores.
The driving event gives the youngsters the opportunity to use the amazing Golf Studio at Dunes as it measures exactly how far they hit each shot. Points are awarded for the distance achieved for each of their shots but they have to be on the fairway to score so some accuracy is required!
The chipping event takes place on our short game zone, as does the putting, with points awarded for proximity to the hole after each shot.
All entrants will receive a free basket of balls to get ready for the competition. It is estimated that the event will take approximately 1 hour to complete.
Clubs can be provided free of charge if needed.
It is a hugely successful event in America with many thousands of youngsters taking part right across the country. The grand final coincides with the US Masters with the qualifiers competing at Augusta the weekend before the golf season opener. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to send the winners of our event to Augusta but we do hope it builds in to a very special annual event in Scotland.
Takes place in the Golf Studio using the simulator 40-yard wide fairway - all shots must finish in the fairway to score points.
