The DDGC Junior Open is now firmly back on the golfing calendar. After a 30 year wait the event, open to all club golfers aged under 18, attracted a field of 51 competitors representing 15 different clubs from across Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire & Buckinghamshire.
The course was in great condition, and, unusually this season, the weather was glorious with not a cloud in the sky – a wonderful day for golf.
The main prize was won by 12 year old George Rocca from Little Hay Golf Club in Hemel Hempstead who shot a gross 89, net 66 to beat Alex Garvey, from Radlett into 2nd place.
The excellent conditions allowed for some great scores with Brandon Black from DDGC winning the Best Gross prize with a score of 76
The DDGC boys took full advantage of playing at home and collected many prizes. Alex Tipping won the U18 category & Ryan Craig was 2nd in the U14 category.

The DDGC Junior Open needs your help. We all know that the first is a tough opening hole from the white tees and having just witnessed the trials and tribulations faced by the juniors this afternoon, and with a strong field of over 50 boys, we know that we will need ball spotters on the first fairway to help keep the pace of play moving. If you have a couple of hours spare, and fancy a morning out in the sunshine, then we would welcome your support. The first match starts at 08:30 with the final group departing at 10:54
Winner- Jeremy Cope 35 pts
2nd – Alan J Smith 33pts ocb
3rd – Ray Wide 33pts
4th – Eddie Bates 33pts
