Hampshire Junior Golf Championship

Guernsey had 5 junior players who qualified and wished to travel to the Hampshire junior championship for ages 12-14 played at Alresford Golf Club.

Result: Under 14 Handicap Winner Lewis Marley

Result: Under 14 Gross and Handicap Runner Up : Rory Mckenna

The competition was played in a stableford format with prizes for gross and handicap corrected scores in each age category. The total field size was 30 with 20% of the entries coming from the Channel Islands.

Funding towards the trip was kindly provided by the Ray Lowe Sporting Foundation, Sports Commission and the GGU.

All the juniors preformed very well, all achieving over 30 points on a new course.

Lewis Marley: 36 points Rory Mckenna : 35 points Conor McKenna: 35 points James Troop: 33 points Max Raffray: 31 points

The good scores for the Guernsey players were reflected at the prize giving. Lewis Marley had the winning handicap score in the Under 14 category and Rory Mckenna was runner up in the Under 14 gross and handicap competitions. This is a fantastic set of results for the island.

The competition was well organised and all the attending Guernsey juniors will have benefited from the experience competing with county standard players and playing off island. The profile of Channel Island golf within the Hampshire setup was increased with a healthy proportion of the field being for Guernsey and Jersey.
