Includes lots of playing opportunities for junior golfers in East Lothian. There are lots of competitions to choose from for beginners to single figured handicappers. To improve your golf skills it is really important to play in as many different competitions and as often as you can. East Lothian has a wide variety of courses from links (next to the sea) to parkland (in the countryside) long (par 73) to short (par 66)! These competitions offer juniors a very affordable opportunity to gain experience of all of these variations and will help them to become well rounded golfers.
Junior Fun Competitions Open to players with or without handicaps generally aged 9 and above. Younger children with some playing or coaching experience will be considered. We try to have an adult with each group to help with rules and scoring so parents are asked to make themselves available. Competitions cost £3 each which is payable on the day. Competitions are played in 2 divisions: Non Handicap (P5 – P7) who play rookie rules (1 shot in the bunker, 10 max per hole, forward tees) or Handicap (players in S1+ that don’t have a handicap are awarded a handicap)
