Mottram hosts American Golf junior comp

AMERICAN Golf  is launching a Junior Championship at De Vere Mottram Hall on August 27 held in association with Ping who will be providing all the prizes.

It is open to anyone aged under 18 as January 1 this year.  Entries will be limited to 100 people on a first come first served basis and will cost £5 per person.  Juniors wishing to enter can apply online at or can pop into their local American Golf store to sign up.

“After the resounding success of last year’s Most Improved Junior competition, we wanted to try to give more of a championship feel to this year’s event.” said Daniel Gathercole, American Golf’s marketing head.

“Junior golfers are the future of the sport so it’s important that the whole industry embraces younger players.  We’re delighted to be working with Pingon this event.  Not only do they have a great range of junior clubs and clothing, but they also share the same vision as we do regarding the future of golf.”

The main competition will see one player crowned overall American Golf Junior Champion, but there will be a numerous awards to win on the day including nearest the pin, the longest drive and a putting competition.  No entrant will go home empty handed as every attendee will receive a great goodie bag courtesy of American Golf and Ping.

Mottram Hall offers a challenging course for the juniors with the front nine gently rolling over meadowland and the back nine giving a more demanding woodland setting.
