Hello all. You may remember that before lockdown we announced the resurrection of the Ramsey Junior Section. Unfortunately Covid-19 has severely hampered any plans we had and we have now had to rethink the best way forward for the junior section. We’re now in the fortunate position that golf with members of other households is permitted. With this in mind I’ve been looking for ways to get our current juniors to meet up and start to play some golf together. Once we get an idea on numbers and abilities we will begin to run some 5-9 hole meetups on a Sunday afternoon; leading to arranging junior golf competitions.
With this in mind I have set up a Facebook group called’ Ramsey Golf and Bowls Club Junior Section’. This will be a ‘locked’ group aimed at juniors and their parents/guardians. I would ask anyone falling in either category to please apply to join the group. The intention of this group will be to communicate upcoming junior events and provide a place for juniors to arrange a game together. Obviously Facebook has an age requirement of 13 or older so parents please join on behalf of your junior if necessary.
We have now started to hold junior golf competitions, playing four junior specific stablefords in 2022 and we intend to carry this on next season.
I would also like to take this opportunity to remind all members that any junior relative you have is entitled to free junior membership. You don’t need to do anything other than get your young ones out playing golf. For beginners please contact the pro shop for information on Mitch’s junior lessons which are extremely well priced.
I know you will all agree that getting a healthy junior section is important for the future of the club. With so many new members I would like to emphasize that your membership entitles children and grandchildren to free golf membership. Please do contact me (Neil Barnes), our Pro (Stuart Scott) or any member of the golf committee for more information!
