We are delighted to report that over 40 local youngsters took part in the 2nd Annual Scottish Junior Drive Chip Putt Championship at Dunes Golf Centre on Sunday 28th May 2017.
The event saw the children, aged between 4 and 15 years old, play three Drives, three Chips and three Putts with points awarded for their performance in each skill.
The idea of the event is to inspire the youngsters to play golf and enjoy the thrill of playing competitively.
For many of the children it was their first taste of competitive golf and from their reactions it looks like they are hooked!

A huge thank you to everyone who took part and to all of the Parents, Grandparents, Aunties and Uncles who came along to support on the day. The car park was overflowing and it was great to see so many families having fun at the golf centre.
A big thanks to our sponsors, MKids Golf, who allowed for the entry to be free of charge and meant we could supply each child with a free Mkids Ball Marker and certificate of participation.
