2017 has been another brilliant year for the DERBYSHIRE FUTURES TOUR, with 90 participants under the age of 14, including 28 girls, taking part in the 9-hole series across eight courses in Derbyshire.   

A FUN, TEAM Florida Scramble replaced the usual format of the final and this took place with excitement and success at Marriott Breadsall Priory, on Sunday 1st October. This was a huge celebration of junior golf which everyone involved thoroughly enjoyed. Prizes were provided throughout the season by our fantastic sponsor ‘Chinnydipper’, a junior golf clothing company, and the Golf Foundation were also generous with providing golf balls for the winners. Following the presentation, we had a DISCO to round off the season, which players, parents and volunteers all appreciated!

Feature

Gaudet Luce Golf Club

Gaudet Luce – Major host

This is a modern golf and leisure complex that doesn’t like to sit still and the steady growth in popularity of the club since its opening in 1995 has enabled the family ownership to put investment back into the course and facilities.

125 years – South Staffs GC

The South Staffordshire Club is always a special visit. Nestled in the leafy suburbs of Wolverhampton, a traditional members club with a much admired parkland course that never fails to impress. Messrs Vardon, Colt, Braid and more recently Donald Steel have all played their parts in creating a layout that charms, teases and yields a low score very reluctantly.
