Close House, home to the 2017 British Masters, is offering two budding junior golfers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to receive a scholarship to the world-renowned, championship venue.
An assessment day will be held for candidates on April 11th, starting at 10am with skills challenges, the juniors will then move onto the Filly Course at 1.30pm for 9 holes of play.
The successful candidates, one boy and one girl, will not only be granted full use of the championship Colt, Filly and Yearling courses, but they will also receive a range card and one lesson per month at Close House’s PGA Golf Academy, the only one of its kind in the North East.
The winners will also get to spend time with international tour star and resident professional, Lee Westwood, where they will have the opportunity to ask him questions and learn what it takes to be the number one player in the world.
This will be the fifth year that the scholarship initiative has been run by Close House. Graham Wylie, owner of the internationally renowned venue, is delighted to be inviting even more juniors to the club:
“The initiative has been incredibly popular over the last four years and we want to use the momentum of the British Masters coming to Close House to continue to boost junior golf throughout the region.
“The future of the game lies in the hands of our young players, and we want to ensure that they receive all the encouragement and support that we can offer.”
