LOCAL business people have given a great start to juniors at Richmond Park Golf Club (Watton).

Richmond Park have created a junior academy, thanks to resident professional Keith Capindale-Scott, and a junior committee completely filled with parents of academy members. The junior organisers are Keith and Richard Symonds, with Tracy Symonds and Claire Bambridge junior secretaries.

The juniors played their first competition of the year last Wednesday and there was a total of 16 players battling for the top prizes.

The winner was James Noble with a fantastic net score of 52 stableford points, winning by just nine points, second was George Symonds with 43 points, third was Jack Bambridge with 36 and fourth was Mitchell McCormack with 30.

In the girls' section of the competition Emma Bambridge beat Rebekka Vansittart by just one point.

Nearest the pin competition was won by Clive Smith (junior captain).

Junior secretary Tracy Symonds said: “We would like to give a big thanks to our main sponsors - Total Health Pharmacy and Wayland Garage and also our sponsors of Adcocks, Watton Plaice, The Dutch Flower Parade, Mullengers, Simon Long Removals and P Bond Roofing Contractor.

“Without their help we could not have had such a great platform to help and encourage junior golf at our club.”
