The Manawatu Wanganui Age Group Champs is being played this Sunday at Feilding Golf Club. A field of 24 Juniors will contest the 36 hole competition to determine the 2016 winners in the following age categories: Boys - U19, U16 & U13. Girls U19 & U15. There will also be gross and net based prizes up for grabs on the day.
In the boys section local Feilding player Liam Finlayson will probably be considered favourite for the U19 boys, as he is competing on his home course. A number of other players are also expected to challenge including Manawatu's Greg Shaw, whom was the best of the Manawatu Wanganui players at the North Island U19's in January.
In the girls section Tara Raj and Katherine Paskins, both played Toro in 2015 and will be the two main contenders, along with Mudra Lakhani.
We wish all the players competing over 36 holes all the best for Sunday.
For those juniors new to the game or not yet ready to compete over 36 holes, we have also set up a 9 hole tournament starting at 1pm. Players will have the choice of 2 sets of tees to play from - a shorter 9 and a longer 9, depending on which stage the players are at.
We are still taking entries for the 9 hole event and will except entries that turn up on the day. Cost is just $5 and all players will receive a small pack at the start, and a chance to win prizes.
We hope to see lots of 9 hole players on the day.
