Junior Flag Challenge expanded for 2016 

schedule to six courses: Entry fee £45

By  Clare-Marie Macaulay

We are delighted to announce the launch of the Junior Flag Challenge 2016 sponsored by Golphin. Following on from last year's success, we have expanded the tour with a further two courses on board and a new category for children who have a CONGU handicap.
The Flag Competition is open to children aged 7-12 years with the nine-hole Stableford competition for those with a CONGU handicap (max 28 for boys and 36 for girls) with an age limit of 16. Prizes will be awarded in age categories at each event.
 There will be Order of Merit prizes for both competitions in which children must take part in five out of six events to qualify for this.
This is a fantastic opportunity for children to learn the etiquette of the golf course, and play a fun but competitive event.
