Futures Golf Tour gets underway

Have your say

THE next generation of young golfers in Derbyshire now have their own mini Tour to play on.

Derbyshire Golf has launched its Futures Tour for 2011 – aimed at girls and boys under the age of 16.

The 2011 programme began at Tapton Park Golf Club and continued at New Mills Golf Club.

Points scored at events throughout July and August will count towards an Order of Merit which will determine who takes part in the September final.

Nigel Furniss, county development officer for the Derbyshire Golf Partnership, said: “The Futures Tour is another of our programmes designed to give young golfers a taste of competitive action on different courses against players of similar age and ability.”

The remaining qualifying events are: July 24, Shirland Golf Club (3pm); July 31, Ashbourne Golf Club (3.30pm); August 7, Alfreton Golf Club (3.30pm); August 14, Breadsall Priory Golf Club (3pm); August 21, Bakewell Golf Club (2pm); August 28, Chesterfield Golf Club (1pm).
