SWCGA U14/U16 Championship - Friday 4th June 2021 Mendip Spring, Somerset
DevonGolf U16 and U14 Team Managers, Mark Sangster and Marc Mulligan respectively, have named the 9 juniors who will represent Devon in the South Western Counties Golf Association U14/U16 Championship at Mendip Spring Golf Club in Somerset. The event takes place on Friday 4th June and sees 9 juniors from each of the the 6 SW counties compete against each other over 18 holes of strokeplay. Each team of 9 players is made up of 6 x U16s and 3 x U14s and, of the 9 scores, the best 7 will count towards the team score.
The DevonGolf team players are:
U16s: Jack Dart (Churston), Stanley White (Saunton), Joel Warne (Stover), Thomas Yeo (Saunton), Thomas Hunt (Saunton) and Troy Riley (Torquay).
U14s: Noah Mulligan (Thurlestone), Donovan Bruce (Saunton) and Charlie Ashbee (Yelverton).
Mendip Spring Golf Club is a parkland course located near Congresbury, Bristol. The championship course measures 6,412 yards and although the front 9 holes are quite open, it narrows dramatically on the back 9 where accuracy will be essential as there are several water hazards and ditches ready to catch errant shots.
This marks a busy period for DevonGolf teams. The Seniors face Cornwall away at Bowood Park on Friday, 28th May in the Channel League after beating Somerset in their first match of the season. The Men's team face the same opponents at Launceston two days' later, Sunday 30th May, before they head to SWCGA Championship Week at Burnham & Berrow Golf Club in early June.
