BGC Juniors – July 2023
With the golfing season now in full swing I am excited to let you know what has been going on at BGC in the Juniors ‘space’.
Summer Coaching Camp
The BGC Juniors have enjoyed a very successful Summer Coaching Camp. This is always a roaring success which can be viewed by all days being fully booked. A massive thank you to Alan Duncan for running & managing the event.
Junior Johnstone Cup
I am happy to announce the dates and details for the Junior Johnstone Cup. To add some context; the Johnstone Cup is the Club Championship at BGC. I am hoping this will be a great event with top quality golf on show.
* Round 1 – Monday 31st July
* Round 2 – Tuesday 1st August
* Semi Final – 3rd August
* Final – Saturday 5th August.
Ewen Ferguson Trophy
We have held 4 rounds of the Ewen Ferguson Trophy with plenty more rounds to be played over the next 6-8 weeks. As a reminder; even if a Junior has not yet played in any previous rounds they are still able to compete and play in future rounds. I have created a set of walk through instructions on how to view/ register and submit scoring for all medals on HDID. This can be found here – https://bearsdengolfclub.co.uk/bgc-competition-registration-and-score-entry/
Also, this competition is a great opportunity for Juniors who are trying to gain their handicap (by completing their 54h qualifying holes) as it allows a perfect environment for them to complete either 9/18holes with other Juniors.
