End of Season Report

We currently have 16 junior members which is a small steady growth of the junior section. This bucks the trends of most golf clubs but we must not be complacent. We have strived to offer a welcoming environment plus a variety of options to improve performance and show that golf can be fun for all ages.
Our juniors are in the main fairly young so, hopefully, we can keep them as members for many years to come. Despite their young age we have, since they joined the club, seen a major change in their golfing abilities which has been reflected in a number of excellent performances this year.
Gemma Burgess has been rewarded for her hard work by being awarded the most improved girl county player having lost 15 shots this season. She was also the winner of the junior league match at the very difficult Oak Park course, beating both the boys and the girls that day. Her brief appearance on sky sports recently made us all very proud and overall she has had a brilliant year.
It is so great to see both Fred and his younger brother Sam Gill on the course. Both have terrific swings and are so enthusiastic. In the league Fred was the overall winner at Test Valley. His handicap then fell below 28 which meant he no longer plays off the red tees and now has to play off the white tees. I think you will agree that for a 9 year old boy this is amazing. Fred is doing very well and given a bit of growth his new handicap will not be difficult to master and I can also see Sam playing in the league next year. Well done boys!
Jamie Ryan showed this year that coaching does work. At the Bishopswood league open he blasted the field away and won the Whale Trophy. He lost 13 shots that day which, as you can imagine, was a bit of a shock to the system. However Jamie has a very powerful swing so with a bit of extra work on the short game will be a vital member of the league team next year. See you at coaching Jamie!
Henry Dutton not only showed off our new team shirts (see web site picture) he also led the boys section following the first two league games but was gutted to miss our own open when he became injured. I hope Henry and his brother Edward can make the winter coaching as our league team can only get stronger with Henry in the side.
At this stage of my report I would like to make special mention of Kevin Fleet. He agreed to assist me with the running of the juniors at the beginning of the season. Kevin is one of the clubs best players so his constant attendance to the coaching and organising a winter schedule of competitions is just brilliant. Together we are keen to give all juniors the chance to improve their game so that they can enjoy this sport so much more. Also many thanks to Steve Ward our golfing guru. Without his coaching programs for members and non-members we would not have a junior section. Cheers Wardy!
Finally - a big thank you to the parents for all your help. This section cannot run without your involvement and support. Long may it continue?
