There are many obvious pandemic reasons for this decision and the county has, from the very start of Covid-19 realised that our clubs/members needs at the end of a compressed season outweigh the counties!
Therefor please accept this email as conformation that SGU County Tournaments are now cancelled.
The SGU like all other South West Counties are looking to lift the bulk of the 2020 season and bring it over to 2021. The SGU are looking to mirror dates and venues for championships and inter county league matches at all age groups where possible. Obviously this needs to fit the host club 2021 fixture list to be achieved.
ENTRY FEES; will be addressed a.s.a.p so please bear with us as we seek to refund everyone over the next few weeks.
Thank you for your understanding and we very much hope to see you all again next season.
On Friday 17th April 24 boys aged 14 or below from 15 different Clubs across the County were due to play the U14 and U12 Championship at The Isle of Wedmore GC. Our thanks goes to the host club and hopefully we can all meet up this time next year and actually play! ironically the weather on Friday saw the first rain for 4 weeks so at least we all avoided getting wet.
Rich Dix and Ian Vibert had put a lot in to pre season with training days taking place before the lock down. The mini's inter County season was full of promise with added under 12 fixtures arranged and development squads growing our County talent.
There is still hope of competitive golf later in the year and the County will look to challenge the young talent even if the fixtures are friendly matches. Keep your swings going lads and see you all as soon as its safe to do so.
Entry is now open for the 2020 Under 14 and U 12 County Championship online and by post. Entry is free and this years event is expected to attract a large fild following last seasons First4Golf Mini Tour Success.
The U14 & U12 squads and teams will be managed by Richard Dix next season who will promote this Championship and all other Junior Golf.
