Stonham Juniors plant their flags

The Stonham Junior Flag Tournament has proved to be a great success attracting juniors from five to 14 years of age. The fun ‘tombstone’ event gives each junior 36 shots to see how far around the course they can get and then they put a flag in the ground where their 36th shot finishes.

The Under Eight category was won by five year old Imogen Potter who reached the sixth green. Imogen, who is part of the Stonham Junior Academy, amazingly achieved a par three on her first hole. The Under Ten category was won by ten year old Sawyer Osbourn from Lakenheath who managed to get the further round the course than any other player, with his 36th shot finishing on the ninth fairway.

The Under Twelve category was won by Soloman Westmancott, a twelve year old Stonham Barns player by reaching the eighth fairway and the Under 15 category was won by 13 year old Layla Farthing from Fynn Valley who reached the seventh fairway.

Stonham Barns have been running Junior Tournaments for over 16 years and currently run eight events through the year for youngsters from four to 15 years of age to experience playing in junior golf tournaments in a friendly relaxed environment. The next event is the East Anglian Junior Under Twelve Golf Championship, which will be held on 28 June. More at: www.stonhambarnsgolf.co.uk/junior-tournaments
