INAUGURAL 8-12 YEAR OLD SHORT COURSE FUN EVENT - KINGS NORTON GC - SATURDAY 4TH APRIL 2015
The newly formed Worcestershire and Herefordshire Golf Consortium (a partnership between WUGC and WHLCGA) staged the launch of a new 8-12 year old short course event, held at Kings Norton GC on Saturday 4th April 2015. The organisers would like to thank Kings Norton GC for their excellent support in hosting this event, in particular, Nick Bird, Head Greenkeeper, who spent considerable amounts of extra time to prepare the course to such a high standard.
Every competitor received a County ball marker and a new ball with the Kings Norton logo on it. The 42 players enjoyed the whole experience and parents commented on how well it had been organised and managed by the County Officials, Mark Ralphs and Stuart Pritchard, from start to finish. Such was the success of this event that the Consortium will be organising another one later this year.
The overall winners, (pictured with the KNGC Club Captain, Bob Cashmore) with a team gross score of 31 ( 2 under par) were:
Jody Traylor, Sam Fletcher, Harvey Jones and Dhruv Patel
In second place with a team gross score of 34 gross were :
Thomas Lennon, Lucy Buckley, Joe Meads and Juna Amin
Five year old Louis Rickett ( pictured below) took each hole in his stride as he warmed up for the English U6 Championships which will be held in Surrey in a few weeks time.
Rhythm, balance, effort, determination, team work, resilience, concentration, great sporting attitudes and very supportive parents were all on display throughout the event ...
