Stanley Morrison Charitable Trust Junior Team Championship 2017


What a fantastic day was had by all at Dumfries & County Golf Club on Sunday. We were delighted to welcome 100 youngsters at Under 14, 16 & 18 level to take part in the 8th Stanley Morrison Team Championship. We have been recognised as a club which wishes to promote the development of junior golf - an ideal close to the hearts of the trustees of the Stanley Morrison Charitable Trust. The Trust has been kind enough to sponsor this event for the 8th year. We would like to say a massive 'thank you' not just from the club itself but from all those budding golfers who came along from near and far!
The format of the competition was for teams of three (best two scores counting) to compete over the Dumfries & County Golf course with each member of the team joining up with players from other clubs in order to give everyone the opportunity of meeting new people over the course of the day. Not only did they all play 18 holes of golf, but they were also involved with Skills Tests in the state of the art Trackman Studio.

The day was run in a most relaxed and professional manner by a whole team of experts! Our own PGA Professional James Erskine headed up the arrangements and took on the role as overseer of all matters! A fantastic coaching team included a past European Tour winner Dean Robertson, Mark Loftus & Stewart Savage. These guys set up a range of skills tests which were really appreciated by the participants and encouraged a lot of fun throughout the day!


Teams came a fair old distance to take part - we appreciate that as we well know that Dumfries is a little out of the way! However, once visited, never forgotten! We pride ourselves on our welcome to visitors, the quality and warmth of our hospitality and not forgetting a superb golf course with some of the best greens in the country - our thanks go to Head greenkeeper Steven Knaggs and his team who are genuinely 'junior friendly' and go that extra mile to prepare a great course for such an event. Teams came from Dumfries and Galloway, Ayrshire, Glasgow and as far afield as Fife on the east coast. The Under 14 Team prize went to Renfrewshire Golf Union and at Under 16 level Caldwell G. C. won the day with Prestwick St Cuthburts winning at U18 level. All the team prizewinners took away inscribed medals to showcase to their friends.


Make no mistake, this was a magnificent 'team' day - The Sponsors, Dumfries & County Golf Club, The Professionals, SJGT, The Players, Volunteers,The Parents - all made this a day to remember!
The generous sponsorship meant that there were no team entry fees, the food for the kids was all paid for as were the refreshments! The youngsters benefited from competition, camaraderie and professional coaching. From the Club's point of view, we are very happy indeed to host such a prestigious new tournament and I can say that overall we witnessed excellent etiquette and manners from all those involved and we will be delighted to welcome you all back next year! We sincerely hope that you all enjoyed your visit to Dumfries & County Golf Club and you can rest assured that we will continue to work tirelessly to promote junior golf - our future!
