Three junior girls from Redbourn Golf Club have qualified for the grand final of the national Wee Wonders Open Golf Championship which will be staged at the historic St Andrews Golf Club.
Redbourn hosted a qualifying event for the tournament and welcomed youngsters from across the region who were competing to earn a place in the final at the home of golf.
Staged on the Short Kinsbourne course, the girls who booked their place in the final included Sophia Fullbrook (girls five to eight), Daisy Smith (girls nine to ten) and Maddie Rolph (girls ten to 12).
Ian McDowell, general manager at Redbourn Golf Club, said: “We had a fantastic turnout for the competition and for players so young, the talent on show was exceptional.
“Congratulations to Sophia, Daisy and Maddie and best of luck for the final.”
The two-day final is to be played over St Andrews Links’ Strathtyrum and Balgove golf courses.
Entry to the Wee Wonders Open Golf Championships is open to any young person aged five to 12 years old – there is no requirement to be a club member or have an official golf handicap.
The popular tournament gives budding young golfers a taste of real competition in a friendly, nine-hole strokeplay format.
