Not sure if members are aware of all the initiatives there are in Durham County for promoting junior golf.
2015 is the seventh year of the Junior Golf Tour which will see the Regional Final held for the second time in Cumbria at the end of the Summer.
Cleveland / Srixon have confirmed that they will support the Junior Golf Tour again in 2015.
This years tour will be administered and run by Mike Greener, Durham County’s new Talent Pathway Coordinator.
The Srixon Tour is for beginners and those juniors with high handicaps and most competitions are over 9-holes.
The first competition was held at South Moor on Sunday 10th May and one of our South Shields Juniors, Archie Wood, came first in his category and had his handicap reduced by 6.5 shots.
There is also a county wide competition, the race to Rockcliffe, for lower handicap juniors.
If you would like any information about the Srixon Junior Tour, contact Mike on 07966 718519 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or for info on both tours, get in touch with Glyn the Pro who coordinates our juniors.
