Thanks to all who attended a fantastic day at Swanston on Sunday 15th April. The course is a fantastic advert for Junior golf and was in tremendous condition. In total we had 40 boys and girls playing which was brilliant. It was great to see so many smiling faces on a cold afternoon.
Many thanks to everyone at Swanston for their kind help on the day especially, Oliver Morton and Bobby Rushford who were tremendous with the kid's lessons. Also our resident professionals Jane Connachan and David Burns who again I am sure made the day even more enjoyable for the kids with their expert tuition.
Special mention to Professional golfer John Gallagher from Swanston who presented the medals, John enjoyed the day, seeing all the enjoyment the kids had in playing the event. I am sure this will help give him a boost when he plays on the Europro Tour this year.
The golf on the day was exceptional. Two of the boys in the under 12's, Callum Murray and Fraser Smith both scored 32 shots. While two of the boys in the Under 10's, Callum Thom and Jamie Fulton, scored 33 amd 36. Stephen - you better watch out!

If you have any comments about the day itself or ways you think we may be able to improve the experience for the boys and girls, please do not hesitate to contact us.
