Series of events for young golfers

As part of South Ayrshire Council’s continued Junior Golf Development Programme, a series of events for young people are being held throughout the summer.

The aim of the initiative is to encourage children who have received coaching to go out onto the course.

Where possible a parent should accompany their child and play will primarily be from blue tees which allows play of a shortened course although there will be some who are able to play from the yellow or red tees.

For all events please arrive no later than 15 minutes before the advertised starting time with the exception of Craig Tara where pre-booking is essential.

You will not be able to just turn-up on these two dates.

An entry from must be completed for the Pre-Handicap Open on September 9th which will be available at all events on the day.

The dates for your diary are: Friday, June 29; Girvan Golf Course, 3pm; Friday, July 6; Craig Tara GC, 10am; Wed July 18; Maybole GC, 3pm; Friday, August 3; Craig Tara GC, 10am; Monday, August 13; Seafield GC, 3pm;

There will be a basic entry fee of £1 payable at each event.

An additional supplement of £2 will be charged for those using blue tees and £4 for those playing from either yellow or red tees.

Any child with a Golf South Ayrshire season ticket will only pay the entry fee and not the supplement.
