Following on from the success last year there has been a lot of demand from not only golfers but golf clubs to get involved in this years event! So this year we have added in a further 2 events to offer something extra to the kids involved. The facilities involved are Playsport Golf, Mearns Castle Golf Academy, Broadlees Golf, Whitecraigs Golf Club, East Kilbride Golf Club, Cathcart Castle Golf Club, Fereneze Golf Club and Paisley Golf Club for the final. Entry into the series of events is £50 and that will guarantee a spot at each venue.
Based on the feedback from last seasons competitors we have introduced a couple of changes, this year we will hold 2 fun events over the summer holidays, the first of which will be an adult/child event at Playsport Golf on 4th July and the second being a Texas scramble on the 6th August at Whitecraigs Golf Club, all the kids will be mixed up and sent out in groups to play in the event. We have also reduced the number of qualifying events to 4 from the remaining 6 events to make sure the series is as competitive as possible, but maintaining our core value that the event is FUN!!
The format is a flag competition, each competitor is given a flag and sets out over 9 holes with their allocation of 36 shots, the winner of each event will be the competitor that gets furthest round the course. Points will be awarded on a sliding scale from 1st, 2nd and 3rd and then on a hole by hole basis. Golfers will be split into categories depending on gender and ages, and this event is open to golfers of all abilities between the ages 5-12 years old.
Our stableford event is also set to grow this year, competitors with handicaps will be able to once again compete on the full course over 9 holes. This is open to golfers up to the age of 16, so long as you have a handicap you will be more than welcome!
As this is a series of events, upon entering the competition your child will be entered into all 8 events, children must play in a minimum of 4 of the 6 qualifying events to be eligible to win the Junior Flag Challenge 2017 and progressing on to our winners final at Turnberry for the 2nd year in a row.
