A terrific turnout of 38 Junior Members representing 9 of our 11 Course Owning Clubs attended the above fun event at Bishopbriggs Golf Club, Academy Course, on Sunday 12th August.
An even split of 19 Under 12’s and 19 under 15’s participated in the usual skill challenges demonstrated by our GGU Coach Alastair Forsyth.
Despite some rain, all the boys and girls who attended thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to practice their putting and chipping skills and learn the importance of developing a good short game.
Prizes were awarded to 2 participants in each category.
Thanks to all Parents and Junior Conveners for arrangements and transport to and from the venue. Also thanks to Gordon Jamison our Junior Team Manager and Andrew Smith for their assistance on the day.
