Junior Golf Sixes 2021
The Golf Foundation’s GolfSixes League is a fun, inclusive format which sees boys and girls meeting from other clubs, enjoying pairs golf, in Texas scramble. Teams are six-a-side and they play six holes, so it’s great time-wise for families. The programme is aimed at Juniors who have not yet got an official handicap, so provides the ideal transition from our 9 hole course to the full 18. It is an event that we have been extremely proud here at Bury St Edmunds to be involved with since the pilot trial in 2017. We have had some cracking success over the years, but the most important thing is that every one of the children that have come through the programme are still involved with Golf. That is why we do it, the medals and the trophies are just a nice icing for all the hard work they have put in.
The team from Bury St Edmunds Golf Club comprised Junior Development Squad players, who played a round robin league against Stowmarket & Haverhill Golf Clubs (Home & Away) over the course of the summer. They were victorious in every fixture and were worthy winners of the west Suffolk League. We then qualified for the county final, which we won aswell! The team have worked so hard this year, and their golfing improvement has been staggeringly noticeable.
The squad for 2021 were: Rhys Whiting, Charlotte Whiting, Shae Baldwin, Lucas Bond, Ethan McCleary, Lexie Fordham, Cameron Byford, Ethan McMunn, Ross Danyliw, Ruby Wise & Sophie Carter.
