The County U15 Championship was held at Killiow Golf Club on Sunday, 28th May 2017 along with the Futures Championship. For the first time, this year the event was held in conjunction with the CGU U14 and U12 Junior Championship.
Seven girls entered the U15 Championship and, even though there was a yellow weather warning issued, the actual rain that came wasn’t as torrential as expected. The girls didn’t let this dampen their spirits however and their smiles shone throughout the competition.
Just pipping her playing partner, Maisie Drewett (Mullion), by 2 shots to win the 2017 CLCGA U15 County Junior Champion was Kira Barnes (West Cornwall) with a gross 88. Winner of the U15 Nett Salver was Polly Gammon (Trevose) after returning a fantastic nett 60 off her 36 handicap.
Three young girls entered into the Futures Championship which was played over a shortened 9 holes on the course. Charlotte Jenkin (West Cornwall) won with a score of 30, closely followed by Ella-Grace Crocker (Carlyon Bay) coming second with 28 points.
Presentation of the prizes was made by CLCGA President Cynthia Penhale whilst Alan Lund (CGU Junior President) welcomed all the participants and gave thanks to the host club Killiow for all their hard work.
