Junior Update - May 2014

Lots to report across all our usual themes so no preamble this month ........

Club Competitions

This months half term brings us to the Nairn Cup in the competitive calendar.  The awful weather all week broke for the Friday morning, but the wet course made for a real challenge.  Firstly it was great to see 14 Juniors compete and we hope all who are just starting playing in competitions enjoyed their experience - please keep playing.  To reinforce the potential of our emerging talent the honours were taken by George Henfry with his net 67 from a handicap of 36.  The runner up slot was taken by Lewis Griggs (79 less 10 for net 69).

Before we move on a special mention to our Junior Girls who joined the competition & showing their immense enthusiasm & potential.  We can see the main summer competitions ahead now ..... will one of these Girls be the first since Helen Woods to put the boys in the shade?

Nottinghamshire Union of Golf Clubs Junior League

Two games in May, both away and being managed by a number of the team around studying for exams.  The games at the Beeston Fields Golf Club & the Chilwell Manor Golf Club were both closely contested and throughout hopes remained alive of taking something.  However, on each occasion the home side ran out 4 1/2 to 1 1/2 winners.  Wins for Harry Danzey & Cameron Gray and a halved match at Beeston Fields for Lewis Griggs showed all the team it is possible to take points in away games.  Just as important the game at Chilwell Manor saw Harry come back from 5 down with 5 to play to earn a half - The sort of "never give up" approach every player can learn from.

Player Development 

The amazing commitment from Chris Hall means that throughout the month we have alternated Sunday coaching between the league team squad and the Up & Coming talent.  Progress of both groups is something to see and shows no signs of slowing down.  With Thursday night coaching as popular as ever we hope everyone is enjoying their practise and seeing their skills improve.


Please get un touch if you know of any under 18 boy or girl who can join our group.  We will do all we can to facilitate them being part of the Cliffe Junior Group.

More Anon.

Junior Update - April 2014

Can it only be April .... so much to report on .............

Thanks to the support of the 89 Club members and the commitment of our Club Professional the Junior Coaching programme has provided the equivalent of 75 lessons through March & April.  We have seen a great mix of our experienced players and those just starting out as Junior members.  The programme will continue over the coming weeks so whether you have been to all the coaching so far or are still to join the programme we look forward to seeing all our Juniors on Sunday 27th April at 2.00pm

Competitions - Two down plenty to go

41 Points in the GrenJon Trophy was a great score and good enough to bring Will Collington the first silver ware of the 2014 season.  Not to be out done Cameron Gray, with a nett 67 took the honours in the Minster Cup. Come on everyone else ..... can you rise to the challenge of being one of our competition winners this year? Neither win was easy, with Harry Danzey and Tom Waterfield taking the runners up slots. 

A big "well done" to Ben Danzey, Dan Butler, Jacob Bates, Ben Gill, George Henfrey and Alex Arnold for playing in these competitions. We want more of our younger & less experienced Juniors to join us on competition days - so if you are reading this wondering if you should play in the competitions, then please follow the lead of these guys and lets see you at the competition in the next half term break - Remember our competitions are at 9am on every Friday of the Nottinghamshire school holidays.

For everyone who is eligible by virtue of having a handicap of 28 or below, lets see if you can replicate your form in the main club medals and stablefords. Please get entered in these competitions too.

League Team

This season sees a new format for the Nottinghamshire Union of Golf Clubs Junior League set up.  We are in the East league, in a format that will see the winners of the four area leagues compete in a Junior Finals day in October.  The campaign begins on May 4th at the Cliffe versus the Wollaton Park Golf Club.  

Thursday's as popular as ever.

Great to see so many younger players at the first two sessions. These are key to the future of our Junior group and a great way to start in golf. No doubt as the summer evenings start to come around these sessions will go from strength to strength.

Support for our Juniors

We have already referred to the fantastic support from the 89 Club members in funding our Junior Coaching programme.   The Junior Captain and all the members would also like to acknowledge the support of Jamie Lynch and Dot Promotional Clothing for their sponsorship of this years team shirts.  Similarly, DP Anderson Decorators continue their long term and much appreciated support for the Earl Howe Order of Merit.

Enough for now - look out for a further update next month.
