Thank you for all your many kind messages of support for the mini tour. I am delighted that you all got such pleasure from participating this year.
The numbers for 2021 were most encouraging and I think it shows that the First4Golf Mini Tour fills an important place in the golfing pathways for both boys and girls in Somerset.
I would like to thank both the Somerset Golf Union (SGU) and the Somerset Ladies County Golf Association (SLCGA) for their continued financial support and Chinnydipper for sponsoring our Order of Merit competition.
This year we have visited :-
Long Sutton GC
The Mendip GC
Each club has looked after us with great enthusiasm and I am soon going to be planning for next year's events. So, if you have any preferences or dislikes then please contact me and let me know your thoughts.
Great set up and the future of county golf in Somerset
