A record field of 113 boys and girls took part in The Junior Festival of Golf at The Leicestershire GC as talented players from across the county showed their skills on Sunday June 27th.
With the club organising handicap competitions over 18 holes and nine holes, plus a flag event for those younger golfers without an official handicap, the day was hailed as a huge success.
Home club members secured the 18-hole plaudits as Ben Ridgway (gross 76) and Francesca Brimm (75) won the individual boys and girls gross prizes respectively, while Jack Farley (net 64) and Emily Wolverson (pictured, 64) led the boys and girls net scoring. Unsurprisingly the team honours went to The Leicestershire as the A team of Thomas Dziuba, Finn Dobson, James Rees, Brimm and Ridgway combined to clinch the gross prize, while the B team of Oliver Tutt, Brendan Riff, Karan Johal, Farley and Wolverson clinched the net competition.
The nine-hole boys and girls events were claimed by Rothley Park’s Finlay Benford, who posted a magnificent total of 28 points, and Mia Ashton (Kibworth), while brother and sister Anay Patel and Eesha Patel won the two Flag competitions on their home course.
