Brocket Hall awards five junior scholarships

Five elite teenage golfers have been granted scholarships at Brocket Hall Golf Club where they will be mentored by the two-time European Tour winner Simon Khan. Each new scholar underwent individual assessment days at the club and were selected on a number of performance and personal criteria. Four reside in Hertfordshire and one in Essex.

Khan, 42, who won the 2004 Celtic Manor Wales Open and the 2010 BMW PGA Championship, helped launch the Brocket Hall scholarship programme earlier this year. The five youngsters, aged between 13 and 18, will each receive 24 months’ membership at the club and coaching from head professional Simon Garner.

Welcoming them to the Palmerston Academy at Brocket Hall, Khan said, “These youngsters have already shown they have natural ability and they now have the opportunity to develop that talent in a thoroughly professional environment. Each will have their own, personal tailored programme designed to give them the best chance to progress their golf career. I wish them all well and I look forward to working with them alongside Simon Garner.”
