Redbourn Golf Club, is excited to announce that four of its junior girl and boy members participated in last month’s Wee Wonders British Championship Final, held on St. Andrews’ famous Old Course.
Fleur Butler-Wright, Sophia Fullbrook, Eddie Wade and Annabelle Wade, all of whom are aged between six and 11, qualified for the event through one of 20 qualifying rounds held around the country.
Accompanied by Redbourn PGA Professional James Blake, the quartet played some great golf throughout the two day event, with other juniors from as far afield as Qatar and Denmark having travelled to the home of golf to participate in the prestigious event.
The news is just one example of the Club’s longstanding dedication to supporting the development of junior golf, and comes following a summer during which the Club gave away 30 free memberships to local juniors.
Junior members at Redbourn have full access to the ample facilities, which include the main 18-hole course, the 9-hole short course, as well as a range of extensive practice areas.
James Blake, PGA Professional at Redbourn, commented: “For Fleur, Sophie, Eddie and Annabelle, getting the chance to play the Old Course at such a young age can only serve as inspiration to go on and achieve great things in the game.
“Golfers around the world dream about the opportunity to visit St. Andrews, so for these four talented youngsters to experience it now is fantastic. We’re extremely proud of our junior setup here at Redbourn and I’m excited to see how their golf develops over the coming years.”
The Golf School at Redbourn has the Golfmark accreditation which means it is a recognised beginner and junior friendly facility. All PGA Professionals on site are fully CRB checked.
