Tom and Luca victorious at home

60 junior players took to the course here at Bourn

Thomas Milton and Luca Randall used all their local knowledge in the fifth round of the Super Six Series on British Junior Golf Tour as they grabbed the first prizes in their respective categories here at Bourn GC on Sunday.

Tom, who celebrated his 13th birthday just a few days earlier, finished one clear of Marco Cuartero (Phoenix) after he carded a Challenge Division winning gross score of 87 to book his place in the Grand Final at Redbourn GC next month.

Luca’s place in the showpiece event on May 21st was already assured after Year 7-8 Age Group wins in the opening two events at The Bedford and Cambridge Meridian.  But the eight-year-old’s determination to finish top of the Order of Merit was evident as he compiled a brilliant score of 38 over the front nine to finish seven ahead of Woodhall Spa’s Henry Price.

Our past captain, Dave Fryer was on hand all day as the official starter for the day, and as you can see, to hand out the prizes.

Back to Back Wins for Bourn Juniors

Luca Randall and Jake Plumb maintained their excellent early season form as they clinched first prizes in the British Junior Golf Tour event at Cambridge Meridian GC.

Eight-year-old Luca bagged two birdies in the last three holes to win his gross 9 hole age category for the second successive event by three from Arthur Saunders (Littlestone Warren).

Jake, who carded the joint-best Challenge Division 18-hole net score in the previous competition at The Bedford GC, held the top spot on his own this time as shot a magnificent round of net 61.  The 25-handicapper finished four strokes ahead of Leah Ribano (Northampton).

Bourn will be hosting the fifth round of the Super Six Series on Sunday, April 23rd.  To find out more about British Junior Golf Tour, visit www.juniorgolftour.co.uk.

Jake and Luca win away at The Bedford

A full field of 78 junior players braved tough, windy conditions at The Bedford Golf Club for the opening event of the Super Six with the British Junior Golf Tour.

Jake Plumb, Thomas Milton our junior vice captain, and Luca Randall were amongst the field.

Jake picked up the best net trophy in the Challenge division with a net 68, winning on count-back, whilst Luca shook off some early trouble in the 9 hole category to record a gross 39, taking the 7-8 division by 6 shots.

Well done Jake, Tom and Luca.

 

The British Junior Golf Tour will be here at Bourn with around 80 players on 23rd April, so if you would like to come and see some great golf, please come along.

Mount Pleasant Senior Captains Away Day

Thank you Ian and all of your catering and green keeping staff for providing me with an excellent venue for my Senior Captain’s Away Day. We had 56 people participating which would have tested the resources and patience of many clubs. What we encountered at Bourn was a fabulous venue with hospitable and courteous staff as well as a course presented in top condition. During the day we met plenty of your members who all reflected the hospitable and friendly nature of Bourn Golf Club. The food was excellent and the atmosphere and facilities were perfect for our end of round meal and prize presentation. All in all a great venue!!

Well done Luca

Luca Randall, who has been working with Ben Kerr, our Head PGA Teaching Professional, using the TrackMan system for the past few months, has returned from the international US Kids Golf Venice Open with a runner-up trophy, after coming second in his age category. Well done, Luca, we are proud of you!

We have had our annual Foster golf day at Bourn Golf Club for 10 years now. Its a wonderful course only exceeded by the superb hospitality offered by the staff. The food is great and they create a relaxed atmosphere which our customers love. I thoroughly recommend the club to anyone thinking of having their corporate golf club in Cambridgeshire

Friendly, challenging and well-presented

Our request to return to Bourn is based on the experience we had last week when the course condition, particularly the greens, and the hospitality we received in the Seniors County match was first class. Please convey our sincere thanks to everyone involved. Our visitors were particularly impressed by the friendliness of staff in the bar, the pro shop and restaurant and resolved to return to enjoy the challenge of the golf course in the near future. Gerald O’Keane

Dear Ian, Thank you for the very generous support of Bourn Golf Club in hosting the NSPCC Charity Golf Day on the 19th May.  The event raised £880 for the charity’s and will be used to support the NSPCC ChildLine Schools Service SPEAK OUT! STAY SAFE! campaign, visiting all our primary schools in this region.  The extensive publicity for the event in surrounding villages, sports and golf clubs, on local radio and press, and on social media acknowledged the event sponsors prior to the event, and similarly so with post event coverage in Facebook.

On a more personal note, we would like to thank you for working so hard to help make the event the success it was both before and on the day, it is appreciated.  Thank you for kindly donating the Golf-Pro Session and for organising the Golf Pro-Shop vouchers in lieu of green fees.

Please could you also pass the charity’s sincere thanks to the Chef Alex who produced a suburb Lasagne lunch for the players and supporters, which was very well received by all.  We were most grateful for his flexibility with the timing of the lunch.  Yours Sincerely Kate

Many thanks Again Trina
