A successful Junior Open was held on Sunday 30th August with 20 entries from all over Derbyshire and Cheshire and one 10-year-old boy even coming from Bolton for his first time playing at another course. It was a beautiful morning there was a lovely atmosphere in the clubhouse and many nerves rattling on the first tee!! Thanks to all the volunteers who helped out and special thanks to one of our new members David Brindley who kindly offered to fund refreshments and additional prizes for the players. Also to Junior Captain, Isidore did a lot of work in recruiting players to come and play.

A successful Junior Coaching session was held on Friday 4th September and lead by Jacob Bagshaw. Eight children and their parents turned out for a fun session of putting, chipping and target practice!! Three of the more able players were taken out on the first three holes by Captain, Mike. They all had a great time and said they will be back for more.

Following on from this junior session, one of our members and parents, Jonathan Taylor has agreed to become our next Junior Organiser and looks forward to working with the other Junior Volunteers and the new Professional when in the post to create more playing opportunities for our junior members.
