At long last golf started at the club with junior golf competitions being played.

Junior District golf started with the Pennant League.

Unfortunately, Junior participance in the competitions was very poor in some cases only three played to a high of seven a few had to be cancelled.


The Junior Open had a small entry with 21 playing.


The club were to enter a team in the Golf Super Sixes, unfortunately we had to withdraw due to juniors not wishing to take part.

This was after emails being sent out twice to the juniors with only two replies.


Pennant Matches
Teams were again made up with 6 juniors playing four matches two single and two double matches.
Even though we only required 6 juniors this was not always achieved with one match played with 5 juniors.
16th May home match against Newmachar we won all four matches a good start to the league.
23rd May Away to Deeside, lost both our single matches and drew both double matches,
30th May Home to Westhill we won 3 matches and lost 1.
20th June Home to Portlethen Lost 2 & won 2.
27th June Away to Murcar Lost 2 & won 2.


26TH June Club Championship the two finalists were Alistair Hunter & Callum High the match was played to a high standard with Callum finishing the morning round 4up. The afternoon round Callum increased his lead to 7 after 5 holes
Alistair then won the next 5 holes eventually loosing 3&2.to Callum.
This match was a joy to referee well played by both boys.


12th June The Rotary Junior Open was played with only two home juniors and seventeen visitors taking part. A small profit was made.
I would like to thank the Rotary for the sponsorship they have given to the juniors over the years it is much appreciated.

26th Sept. Junior Open European Qualifier played at Newburgh Golf Club, Alistair Hunter entered and finished first this qualified Alistair to play in the finals to be held in Spain in October.
