We were all junior golfers once and ROB ROCK is certainly helping to find the next “ROCKY” as the Robert Rock Junior Golf Tour finishes its 2017 season off in style and launches its newly expanded 2018 tour.
Rob has always been a great supporter of junior golf and the Junior tour will only get bigger and better, The Robert Rock Junior Golf Tour started in style August 2016 with over 50 kids attending a Single event at Beeston Fields Golf Club in Nottingham. With pressure from the kids and parents a second event was hosted in October 2016. Seeing the success of these two events came their decision to run a Junior Tour over the Midlands.
Each event has an 18 hole competition for all juniors with handicaps of 28 and less for Boys and 36 and less for Girls. The boys play in Under 18 and Under 16 categories.
Running along the 18 hole event is a 9 hole event, this is for all juniors who have handicaps of 36-54 for girls and 29-54 for the boys. They play a stableford event off their handicaps, this tour was aimed to encourage the younger juniors to play in events while still playing in official handicap events.
There is an order of merit running along the 3 events for 2017, the winner from each category Under 18’s, Under 16’s, Girls and the 9 hole handicaps will experience the chance to play 9 holes with the European Tour Winner Rob at the end of the year at Sutton Coldfield Golf Club. There are also fantastic individual prizes for a variety of achievements on the day and a welcome present for each participant in attendance.
BIG Plans for 2018
Plans are to expand the Main Tour, 18 holes and the 9 Hole events to 4 events across the Midlands.
The mini tour will be a series of 9 hole events- aimed at Juniors Under 12 who don’t have handicaps but play a bit of golf and want to play in a “grown-up” golf event. There will be various age categories- Under 12’s, Under 10’s, Under 8’s, Under 6’s and a category for Juniors who are Under 12 but have a handicap.
Natalie Clarke is the event organiser making sure the events have a relaxed atmosphere and the kids have a lot of fun. The grand final being played at Beeston Fields where all prizes will be presented.
