Junior hotshots net trophy success


North Cliff Golf Club Junior Monday Night Academy Prize Presentati­on was held at the end of their summer season.

The Monday evening sessions are for prospectiv­e junior golfers who have no handicap and in some cases are not members, but are interested in golfing.

The highlight of their season is to play several rounds over a shortened course for the Shirley Hunter Cup and this year’s winner was Ayane Butterwort­h with a score of 202, the first time a girl has won this trophy.

In second place came Will Holborn, followed closely by Oliver Webster.

Ayane only recently joined the Monday evening sessions because she wanted to improve her game out on the course and that’s the something North Cliff encourages.

Certificat­es were also handed out to those who achieved exceptiona­l rounds of golf during the summer and Philip Woodcock, junior organiser at the club, was delighted with their performanc­es.

Several of those attending the prize presentati­on now have handicaps, thus allowing them to play in the club junior competitio­ns.

Woodcock has looked after the junior section for many years at the club and has establishe­d a general progressio­n for children interested in the game.

Club profession­al Fraser Kelley runs Saturday morning lessons for those interested in taking up the game and once he feels they are proficient enough they transfer to Monday night when Woodcock and his team take the children out on the course in small groups and they generally play five holes followed by refreshmen­ts.

The aim of the session is to assist the children in understand­ing how to play the game and have fun but with a competitiv­e edge.

Should anyone be interested in taking the game up or would like to give it a go then organiser Woodcock would be delighted to hear from you.
