Juniors enjoy Pro day
5 juniors had a great time at Pro days, Scott kindly allowed the juniors to play for the first time and take part in this cracking event. Even though they had to play off the white tees Jack Burns won the longest drive on the 13th (John Daly watch out!). Next year at this rate we will have a junior winner.
Juniors visit British Open
7 juniors supported by 3 adult members attended the Open at St Andrews. The club kindly paid for the visit including entry, travel and food. All the kids had a fantastic time with lots of autographs and great memories. Jack Burns won the longest junior drive competition at 297yds!!!! With Josh walking a hole with the Legend John Daly. Many thanks to Cammy Robertson and Scott Ewing who drove the kids and looked after them.
Scott present new clubs to junior Newton Shield player Josh Campbell
Josh Campbell was over the moon after purchasing his new Callaway junior hot clubs. Scott matched the cheapest price online and had them delivered to the shop. Just goes to show if you approach Scott for golf equipment he will try and meet if not beat the online prices. Lets hope young Josh can hit many a winning balls with these clubs .
Juniors compete in the John R McCarley competition
A good turn out for the first prize winning competition of the year. The junior’s took to the course on a brisk Sun morning supported by Scott and Club Captain David Burns. Overall scores were impressive with the majority of the boys playing to or below their handicap. Of special note is Josh Campbell (28 handicap) who scored a net 60 with Jorg Irvine shooting an impressive net 68 (5 handicap). The juniors continue to improve weekly, fully supported by the club.
Gents and Juniors competition
A beautiful morning witnessed the gents take on the juniors for the yearly club challenge. The gents team supported five players with handicaps all below 5, the juniors unfazed took to the challenge with a strong performance from all of them. Over the next 4 hours all matches swayed either way with the final outcome as below. Many thanks to Cammy for organising the game and the gents in general for the experience gained.

Juniors play Barrasie (Kilmarnock)
12 juniors from the club battled fierce weather today playing a return match at Barrasie. The overall score witnessed Barrasie winning all matches bar one (well done Jack). The juniors continue to learn the harsh reality of competition golf with difficult weather playing a major factor, however it was pleasing to know on their return to Elderslie many of them went out to address their weaknesses. Barrasie were fantastic host with honest hospitality and great food, many thanks to their Junior Convenor Craig for making the day possible. Can I also thank the Dads and Mum who supported driving us there and back, and not forgetting Scott for supporting the juniors in all aspects.
