SOMERSET JUNIOR TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

The Rules

  • Each Club can enter as many teams as they wish at a cost of £15 per team - the entry fees are donated to the winning club to help  with expenses they incur when attending the National Finals
  • Teams consist of 3 players with each score counting. Teams may be Boys, Girls or a combination.
  • Each player  must also be a competitor in the Somerset Golf Union Junior Championship hosted this year at Wells Golf Club on Sunday 26th April, and they are responsible for entering that competition themselves. The team event will be played over the first 18 holes of the Junior Championship.
  • The constitution of teams must be registered with the SGU Registration Team who will be on hand on the day prior to the first player going out.

We hope that Junior Organisers within the County will support the event.

n the absence of a Junior Organiser, individuals may wish to talk to their playing companions about entering as a team - I am sure that Clubs would be only too pleased to support. 

Entry forms and posters can be downloaded from this page - but please remember to enter the Somerset Junior Championship as well!

Saltford Golf Club were today crowned the England Golf Junior Champion Club for 2019 at Woodhall Spa, the home of England Golf. The team of Dewi John, Dylan John and Alex Georgiou posted a winning score of 149 points based on the best two cards from three over two rounds, playing on the famous Hotchkin Course.  Parkstone Golf Club came second with 148 points and the Kendleshire Golf Club came third with 145 points.

Lying 12th overnight with a round 1 points total of 68, the boys played phenomenal golf in round 2 finishing with an incredible 81 point total which moved the team into top spot. Special mention for Dewi John who played round this extremely difficult course in 2 under gross (including two 3-putts!), scoring 42 points off a handicap of 4.  Dylan John added a hugely valuable 39 points to Dewi’s score and Alex Georgiou’s 35 points second round score ensured they had a very strong third card in case count back was required.

Congratulations to all three boys on a great win. Saltford Golf Club have been Somerset’s representative in this competition several times in the last 10 years. It was very rewarding to win this hugely prestigious England Golf Competition and we look forward to the chance to defend the title at Frilford Heath Golf Club, Oxfordshire, next year.
