The first round of the Junior Championships was contested last Sunday, the competition for the oldest competitors being played on the 18-hole championship course and the nine-hole championship on the Pans course for nine- to 14-year-olds and a three-hole championship for the youngest of the club’s junior members.

The lead in the 18-hole championship is shared between Murdo McLean and Fraser MacBrayne who both had 93s. Fraser had an excellent 81 on Saturday in the first round of the Gents’ Championship. Young Kyle Colville is hot on their heels after a 95.

The leader of the nine-hole championship is Jake MacMillan with younger brother Craig leading the three-hole championship.

The club now boasts a membership of 76 junior golfers ranging in age from four to 17.

Up to 30 juniors are being coached under the expert tutelage of club professional Jennie Dunn and Anthony Dunn on Wednesday and Thursday evenings.

Jennie and Anthony are taking bookings for the junior summer camp on July 29 and 30 where the children are given two days of coaching plus lunch.
