Ryan Bowden

Finley Pyke

Luke Burbridge

Congratulations to all of you, Ian and I will look forward to seeing you in the coming months.

We are hoping that our first session will take place on Sunday November 22nd and are awaiting confirmation that our preferred venue will be able to accommodate us. As soon as this has been agreed I will be back in touch to give more details and the joining instructions

As I have previously indicated, we were unable to proceed with the usual Assessment Day this Autumn. We will be in touch with Clubs and Coaches to try to identify potential candidates to join our Under 14 Development and Under 12 Futures Squads for 2021 to join those who remain eligible from the 2020 squads.

Finally,  please click the on the right to see a note from the County Junior Organiser Ian Poole that will, I hope, answer any questions that you may have concerning the COVID 19 situation. Naturally, the welfare of the boys, the members of the SGU and the staff and members of our supporting golf clubs is of paramount importance. I hope this will re-assure you that the necessary steps will be taken to protect us all.

I look forward to seeing you all soon.

Under 14 Team Manager

2020 Matches & Venues will roll over to next year as a result of Covid-19.... With planning hampered by the unknown timescales of the current crisis and clubs having great difficulty in arranging their fixture list there may be a delay in conformation of venues for the above matches 2021. Every effort will be made by the channel league to stick with the corresponding dates and chosen venues wherever possible


U12 & U14 Championship 2020

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.


Somerset's Under 14 side play a series of competitive matches throughout the season against our neighbouring counties. The squad is generally selected in the autumn in order to participate in the winter training and coaching programmes established by the Performance Coach and Team Manager and . However, they will always be looking out for emerging talent identified by the Develeopment Group that run alongside, as well as keeping an eye out for newcomers, either those new to the game or who move into the area. The matches we play are:

  • Jack Roberts League. We compete with Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Wiltshire for the Jack Roberts Memorial Trophy. This was presented by the Dorset Golf Union in honour of their former Juniors Secretary from Weymouth
  • Friendly matches are played against Glamorgan and Gloucestershire
  • South West Counties Golf Association (SWCGA) Under 16/Under 14 Championship. We take a team of 9 boys, 6 Under 16s and 3 Under 14s to represent Somerset in this annual competition. The boys will compete individually for the respective SWCGA Championship. Collectively they will compete for the Inter-Counties Shield with the best 7 scores to count. We play against Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.
