After weeks of rain, Wigan Golf Club hosted the latest European Junior Golf Tour (EJGT) event on Monday, 7th August, with over 30 junior golfers in attendance.
The historic venue opened in 1898 as Arley Hall and features a clubhouse situated in a medieval moat; providing a picturesque venue for families to enjoy their day out. The local members were hospitable and excited to see so many young faces at their club.
The rearranged event was the first day of play on the course in two weeks, with sandy greens and cut-in holes providing challenging conditions for the juniors. EJGT founder Roger Shutt said, "This is golf. Conditions like today teach the children how to deal with different scenarios and understand that golf isn't always straightforward."
All attendees in the under 8's category received a Golfway cap and Golfway Champion glove, thanks to a partnership between Golfway and the EJGT that encourages participation and equal opportunities at the grassroots level.
Golfway Brand Manager Mollie Evans commented, "It was great to see so many happy faces at Monday's event. We are pleased to support another successful EJGT event and look forward to future tournaments over the summer."
EJGT events welcome children of all genders and abilities. The tournaments provide a competitive and family-friendly environment, with juniors meeting new friends and competing in age-based categories.
