Newton Stewart Golf Club’s junior golfers brought their season to a close with a competition and presentation evening to which family and friends were invited.

Junior members participated in a 9-hole competition and various skills tests, supervised by Chris Robinson PGA Pro and Jordan Whiteside Level 1 Coach.

Afterwards they enjoyed a supper, kindly sponsored by Jimmy Cloy, the club steward.

The club has been fortunate to receive the support of Club Golf and the Awards For All funding to establish this development programme and provide the practice facilities, which will enable golfers of all ages to improve at the sport. The development programme teaches many important life skills.

Practice facilities and the course are available to all juniors throughout the winter months and allow everyone to fine tune their swings ready for the coaching sessions commencing in the spring.
