Junior Season Finishes

News Posted: 15th May 2012

The August Junior Medal proved a tough test in windy conditions but Sean Graham battled through to win with a gross 91 net 66, two strokes ahead of Jake Constable and Sam Constable on net 68’s.

The September Junior Medal also saw breezy conditions, which was always going to make the course play far harder than the par.  Kieren Fraser coped best in the conditions and was the eventual winner with a gross 94 net 70.  Sam Constable came second but things could have been so different if he had only managed to keep out of trouble on the last hole.   

The final competition day for the juniors this season was on the 18th September, and there were two events, the Medal Winners Shield, which is contested by all the monthly medal winners throughout the year, and the Non-Medal Winners competition, which is for all the other players.  The playing conditions were good, a bright day with only a slight breeze, not bad for September.  The scoring though was not as good as expected but Sean Graham managed to stay in front and win the Medal Winners Shield for 2011.  The competition in the Non-Medal Winners saw better scoring as the players took full advantage of the nice conditions.  The winner, due to a very good back nine was Sam Constable with a net 69, just ahead of Jake Constable with a net 73.

Other competitions this year saw Andrew Bain win the Summer League for the third consecutive year, and the Most Improved Player trophy for the year went to Stuart Fraser who reduced his handicap by the greatest percentage over the year. 

After the competitions on the 18th September the junior presentation of trophies took place.  There was a wide spread of competition winners during the year, with all of the regular players lowering their respective handicaps and improving their scores.

The Junior Convenor thanked everyone for their help throughout the year and praised the juniors for their effort and success during the golfing season.
