American Golf launches Junior Championship

American Golf is launching a Junior Championship at De Vere Mottram Hall with the inaugural event held in association with Ping which is providing all the prizes for the competitors. The event is open to anyone aged under 18 as of the 1 January 2014 and entries costing £5 will be limited to 100 juniors on a first come first served basis.

There is a main competition for overall American Golf Junior Champion and numerous awards to win on the day including nearest the pin, the longest drive and a putting competition. No entrant goes home empty handed as every attendee receives a goodie bag courtesy of American Golf and Ping. De Vere Mottram Hall’s Championship Golf Course offers a challenging course for the juniors with the front nine gently rolling over meadowland and the back nine giving a more demanding woodland setting.

Daniel Gathercole, head of marketing at American Golf commented, “After the resounding success of last year’s ‘Most Improved Junior’ competition, we wanted to try and give more of a championship feel to this year’s event. Junior golfers are the future of the sport so it’s important that the whole industry embraces younger players.  We’re delighted to be working with Ping on this event.  Not only do they have a great range of junior clubs and clothing, but they also share the same vision as we do regarding the future of golf.”

Juniors wishing to enter can apply online at or visit an American Golf store to sign up.
