U12 Fun event at Kings Norton GC 27.10.15 - REPORT
Under 12 boys and girls fun event at Kings Norton Golf Club. Tuesday 27th October 2015
The third event of this kind this year was held in fine weather on Kings Norton's Par Three course and over the 8 holes of the Red loop.
30 boys and girls arrived promptly for the 11.00 a.m. start. They were divided into different groups in order for some to play the red loop whilst the majority had a shotgun start on the par three course. The course was in great condition and everyone enjoyed the mild weather as they plotted their way around. The County officials attending, namely: Mark Ralphs, Roger Martin, Yvonne Foley, Sue Birch, Stuart Pritchard, Will Painter( County President) and Bill Thompson, watched closely to see how the young players of the future executed their shots and managed their emotions as they coped with everything the game of golf could throw at them. It was fair to say that the officials were all very impressed.
The County will be reviewing plans for next year's U12 events so please keep an eye on the website for future notices.
The County would like to thank Kings Norton G.C. for hosting this event for the second time this year and to all the members for being so accommodating. Thank you to all the parents for supporting this event and for encouraging their children to participate.
The final results were:
Short Course Winner : Elliot Baird
Joint Runners Up : Harry Oughton & Ethan Gahan
Girls Prize to Alisha Shahid
Main Course (8 holes) Winner :Cassius Blake Runner Up: Oliver Stanford
Main Course (6 holes) Winner: Thomas Rainbow Runner Up: Lili Rose Hunt
