Welcome to the 2018 Junior Flag and Stableford Challenge

The Home of Junior Golf in the West of Scotland


Our purpose is to give children the opportunity to play and enjoy golf in a fun and competitive environment


What is the Golphin Junior Flag and Stableford Challenge?

This format gives each child 36 shots to play as far round a shortened golf course as possible with points being awarded based on where they finish on the course. The average length of each hole is approximately 150 yards over the 9 holes. An order of merit is formed over the series of events with the winners being the players with the most points come the end of the series. The Stableford event for those that hold handicaps to ensure that this really is a tour that is open to all. New for this year is that all the Stableford players will be playing over 18 holes and will be able to return their scores to their home club for handicap purposes.

To sign up for any of our 3 tours this year it will remain at the same price as we have charged last year at £50. This will include entry into all of the events for each tour and access to our grand final at Trump Turnberry which is based on our Order of Merit. A 10% discount is applied to any additional tours when joining up. Click here to register


The Glasgow South Tour

This is where it all began, we have been operating the tour over the last 3 years at courses in South Lanarkshire, East Renfrewshire and Glasgow Areas. 

In 2017 we had 77 competitors playing over 8 different venues competing within the categories 5-7, 8-10, 11+ and Stableford. 2017 was our most keenly contested year so far with us noticing marked improvements from event to event!

We have kept some of last years venues and added in some new ones! Check out this years venues

NEW! 2018 Ayrshire Tour

What can we say? We had plenty of enquiries last year for events “down the coast”, it would have been rude not to organise an Ayrshire tour for this year!

We have worked hard to make sure that we have chosen some of the best courses that Ayrshire has to offer (there are plenty to choose from!!) Check out our Ayrshire Venues


NEW! 2018 Glasgow North Tour

Another area where we had many enquiries was North of the Clyde….so once again we are introducing another new tour for this year. Our Glasgow North tour will stretch from Dumbarton to Moodiesburn

Again we have worked hard to make sure that we have chosen some of the best that the North has to offer, check out this years venues

A little word from our sponsor, parents and participants

Read enough and want to register?


Trial Event

We have had significant interest in the Tours this year, but plenty of parents that aren’t sure that their children will be capable of participating or be as good as the other kids. Here at the Golphin Junior Flag and Stableford Challenge we are more than confident that everyone will have such a great time that they will be back for more! 

So we have introduced this option to allow the kids to come along and try the first event on one of our tours for only £10 and if they enjoy it as much as we think they will then you can pay the remaining £40 to sign them up for the rest of the tour!
