Now that another lockdown is near to finishing we can at last look forward to a relatively uninterrupted golfing season. Further to the newsletter that I sent out in December please note the changes that have been made to the golfing programme for our juniors in 2021. Firstly a reminder of the members of our Junior Committee who will be helping to facilitate the running of the section and to organise events. This is particularly to inform the Juniors who have joined in recent months of who they should contact for information as we have not had the chance to meet with you all yet.

Great news here is that we can finally resume coaching our Juniors on a Saturday morning (and possibly Sunday) in larger groups which is something we have all been looking forward to. The first session will be on 10th April and is open to all of our Juniors but to help us comply with Covid guidelines we will need to know in advance who is going to be there.
Junior Coaching programme for the start of the season and remember that you need to pre register with Josh or the pro shop.
Clearly we have been unable to hold the Junior AGM so far this year, but with the clubhouse due to open up again in May, we are provisionally looking to hold this on Saturday May 29th on socially distanced tables immediately after the Junior coaching session on a Saturday so that as many Juniors and parents can attend as possible.
Just a reminder that there are also three more trophies to be awarded at our 2021 AGM.
|Ian Whyte Trophy||
This trophy is presented to the junior who is felt to have contributed the most to the Junior section in 2020.
Emily Horsted is pictured below accepting the Trophy from Captain Andy and Ian Whyte.
|Teddy Edwards Trophy||
This trophy is presented to the Junior who has made the most improvement over the year.
Blake is pictured below after receiving his Trophy from Captain Andy and Lady Vice Captain, Yvonne.
|Trevor Ireland Trophy||
This Trophy is awarded to the junior with no official handicap who is deemed to have made the best contribution to the Junior section in 2020.

Unfortunately, it has been necessary to change a couple of these fixtures due to date clashes at other clubs and the finalised dates are as follows:
10th July …... Burghley Park starting at 14.32 pm
22nd July...... Stoke Rochford starting at 10.00 am
3rd August..... Greetham Valley starting at 14.00 pm
12th August....Belton Park Home fixture starting at 14.00 pm
All fixtures are for four juniors who play on an individual basis against members of the other teams. The winners of the league go through to a Regional final. We will be selecting the team for our first match at Burghley later this month.
Unfortunately our planned fun events for the first quarter all had to be cancelled due to the lockdown. We will be arranging a whole new series of these for the summer months starting in May and the dates will be sent to everyone shortly. These have proved really popular and get all the family participating.
Finally the Junior Committee would like to wish you all a very happy and rewarding golfing season and look forward to seeing you all soon.
