ETCH­INGHILL Ju­niors have en­joyed an­other im­pres­sive year on their own course and around the coun­try. Se­nior club pro Steve Mitchell and ju­nior or­gan­iser Bill Hay have helped to nur­ture some raw tal­ent into healthy prospects. The Steve Mitchell Tro­phy took place for the first time this year and will now be a yearly event for the ju­nior golfers. The first win­ner of the com­pe­ti­tion was Liam Sut­ton with an im­pres­sive score of 150, 10 over par, with Tom Hay run­ner-up on gross. Josh Bris­tow won the net with Ge­orge Yorke in his wake. Mitchell also or­gan­ised the first Etch­inghill Open Ju­nior Cham­pi­onship which at­tracted 40 play­ers from far and wide. Home golfer Ashley Knight took the hon­ours with a gross 72 but was pushed back into sec­ond on count­back. In the club’s Men’s Sum­mer Cham­pi­onship the win­ners were Ben King and Bris­tow. Matt Sut­ton won the net com­pe­ti­tion as Gilling­ham GC hosted the Kent Ju­niors, while brother Liam won the gross. Out and about Rus­sell Green­hill won in his age group in the YMG Mas­ters at the Helling­don Lakes Club in War­wick­shire while, closer to home, Bris­tow won the Bearsted Open.
