Adult Competitions for Juniors
Any Junior member that holds a handicap of 10 or below may enter any Adult Club competition.
5 Hole Fun Junior Golf
5 Hole Fun Golf is held on Sunday evenings (April to September) for the younger junior members and specifically aimed at the 7-13 / 14 year old members.
Below describes how this operates.
Played over the opening 5 holes (1st – 5th) from the BLUE TEES which are positioned approx half-way down the fairway of these holes and allows a shorter more achievable challenge compared to the longer standard tees.
Aimed at the younger juniors who do not have an official club handicap with the 1st tee being reserved from 4:30 until 5pm.
One parent / group walker is required to accompany each group round the course and assist the players to record their scores on the first 5 holes onto a course score card. Completed score cards can then be handed into the club secretary (via the office door letter box) where they will be retained. The club secretary will monitor the scores returned and based on the scores returned the player may then be given a club handicap of between 29-36.
In order for this to function effectively we need the support of the parents to assist from the beginning and going forward. Its great to get involved and see your child both having fun but also to see them progress.
Once a player has this handicap of between 29-36 the junior can then sign up to play in the Monday night junior medals and at the end of their block booking (4:30-5:30) and play from the YELLOW TEES over the 18 hole course. Completed score cards from these YELLOW tees should then be handed into the secretary’s office (via the letter box) after play on these Mondays.
This will hopefully provide a further platform towards playing for an official club handicap of 28 or less.
HOW DO JUNIOR MEMBERS OBTAIN AN OFFICIAL HANDICAP?
A Junior Club Member can obtain a current Club Handicap by the following:
A Junior can play the main course with an adult player or someone (Adult or Junior) who has a valid CONGU handicap who will then sign the Junior`s scorecard and hand in to the Club via the Score Card Box in the clubhouse lounge area or into the clubhouse office.
Once the Junior has returned 3 completed cards with scores less than 100 off the Yellow Tees they will be given a CONGU Club handicap of maximum 28 allowing them to play the main course and enter the club’s Junior Competitions.
