The 4th Ignite Golf Junior league event of the year at Stonebridge Golf Club. As usual there is a category for every age and experience of junior golfer.

  • 9 Hole League – for Stonebridge junior members with a handicap who are able to play 9 full length holes
  • 8 Hole Stableford – for juniors that are able to play 9 holes off the short tees.
  • 4 hole Bingo – for the youngest juniors (4-8 years) with minimal golf course experience.

9 Hole League

This week it was very close, with the top 5 only being 2 points apart, so we had to go to countback! In this format the juniors play 9 holes, using stableford scoring, official WHS handicaps, official golf rules and playing off the red tees for the girls and the yellow tees for the boys. 

1st – Charlie Christopher

2nd – William Walkden

3rd – Ruby Litwinko-Smith

The leaderboard for the year so far is below, each event they are awarded points for where they place in the following breakdown: 25, 22, 20, 18,16, 14, 12, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4. The top 3 receive credit on their Midlands Golf cards to spend in the Pro shop and the top 2 receive medals!

8 Hole Stableford

This format acts as a stepping stone towards the 9 hole league. The junior golfers play relaxed golf rules off shortened golf holes. They have the opportunity to play 9 holes however the 5th hole acts as a break hole, where there is no scoring. If they like they can just walk it, run it or skip down the hole, but they are more than welcome to play it just without scoring. Basically it gives them a chance to relax!

Congratulations to the top 3 this week!

Golf Bingo

For the youngest juniors, they play a fun format of golfwe call Golf Bingo. No proper scoring, but they are given a Bingo card with a variety of tasks to complete, here are a few examples:

– Lined up a putt

– Hit the ball out the rough

– Chipped over a bunker

– Made your caddy laugh

The idea is to just get the children playing and having fun out on the golf course and we always give them some small prizes at the end. At this age and stage of their development we don’t want them to be stressing about rules, competition etc but just enjoying themselves and having a good time on the golf course. 

Thank you!

A big thank you to everyone that got involved on the day, it is always great to see lots of juniors enjoying the golf course and was especially great to see lots of new juniors playing!

We’d love to hear how you found it just drop a comment below!

The next event will be on the 17th July, which will be available to book online soon.
