Back in June, 8 of our Juniors competed in Wee Wonders qualifying events in Bryn Meadows and Wenvoe Castle.
Esme Matthews won her age category in the 2 events and Eve Clunis-Wheway, Sam Matthews and Ella Evans were runners-up in 1 or both of the competitions.
The 4 Juniors positions and scores qualified for the prestigious Wee Wonders British Championship Grand Final in Scotland following in the footsteps of Wee Wonders alumni Tommy Fleetwood, Charley Hull and Tyrell Hatton, to name just a few.
Over the August Bank Holiday weekend, the 4 Juniors travelled up to East Lothian to play 2 rounds in the Grand Final. Eve and Sam, both 10 years old, played at Gullane Golf Club, Eve playing 9 holes and Sam playing 18 each day. Our 7 year old girls Ella and Esme were at North Berwick playing 18 shorter holes both days.
The Juniors were not allowed caddies and made their own club selections and choices around the courses. The weather was kind to them and they all played very well competing against the best Juniors in the country.
They made new friends, enjoyed the challenges and had a lot of fun.
Over the combined days, Esme placed 3rd in the Under 9 girls category and has automatically qualified for the US Kids European Championship next year. Eve, Ella and Sam all achieved excellent scores.
They had a fantastic experience of competing at a British level and all had wonderful holidays in Scotland with their families visiting St. Andrews and Edinburgh Zoo.
