The NDGA held the Schoolboys & Schoolgirls Golf Championships on Friday 20th April 2018 at Belmont GC. Also held in conjunction with this event was the NHDLGA Junior Girls Open Championship & Nett Trophy.
About 36 Juniors competed in events such as 18 hole scratch & nett, Age divisions scratch & nett, school team event, our own Junior Girls events & a 9 hole beginners event. There were 7 girls competing this year. The weather was perfect & the course was in great condition & a burger, drink & chips to enjoy by all after their game. What more could you want!
The Open Junior Girls Championship was won by Makensie Toole of Belmont GC with a terrific scratch score of 76. The Junior Girls Nett Trophy went to Amy Squires of Nelson Bay GC with a nett score of 72. A very happy first time winner.
A special thanks needs to go to Rod Carruthers & Don Nelson from the NDGA for running such a terrific Junior event.
The Junior Championships were first held in 1991 and are usually run in conjunction with other junior events within the District.
In previous years the closed event was awarded to the player, who was a member of an affiliated District Club, with the best scratch score returned by a player. In 2010 the closed event trophy was awarded to the player, who was a member of an affiliated District Club, with the best nett score over the field.
