Our local area’s original junior golf tour is back with a full schedule ahead of the 2022 season, with a little stardust thrown into the mix courtesy of an equally locally based LPGA star.
The tour is to be run in association with Northamptonshire born and bred Charley Hull
who will play a round with each of the Order of Merit age group winners at the end of next season.
Shires Tour is now under new ownership and has successfully run a part schedule in 2021 to great interest from well over 100 golfing kids from the south-east of the Midlands. Next year’s full calendar will offer more opportunities than ever more to encourage juniors to get involved in competitive golf in a fun environment.
The Shires Tour is run by Market Harborough Head Pro, Kegan Jamieson (pictured here with Charley) with the help of other locally based PGA professionals.
The tour is inclusive to all ages and abilities. The four divisions are based on ability of golfer rather than in age groups.
