The Robert Rock Junior Golf Tour
Compete against your peers, play different courses, have fun, improve your technique, add character building values, learn the rules of golf and the correct etiquette. Whilst doing so, you can also win exclusive one to one coaching and a round of golf with European Tour Star Robert Rock.
The Robert Rock Junior Golf Tour started in 2016 as a single event at Beeston Fields Golf Club in Nottingham in August. After a successful event with over 50 juniors attending, the parents and juniors asked Rob and Natalie if they would consider doing more events. In October 2016 they hosted their second event at Beeston Fields Golf Club. From this came their decision to run a Junior Tour over the Midlands. Each event has an 18 Hole Competition for all Juniors with Handicaps of 28 and less for Boys and 36 and Less for Girls. The boys play in Under 18 and Under 16 categories.
Running along the 18 hole event is a 9 hole event, this is for all Juniors who have handicaps of 36-54 for girls, 28-54 for boys. They play a stableford event off their handicaps, this was aimed to encourage the younger juniors to play in events while still playing in official handicap events. There is an order of Merit running along all 3 events, the winner from each category will experience the chance to play 9 holes with the European Tour Winner Rob Rock at the end of the year. There will also be fantastic individual prizes for a variety of achievements on the days and a welcome present for each participant in attendance.
Coming in 2018
We plan on expanding the Main Tour and the 9 Hole events to 4 events across the Midlands.
Robert Rock Junior Mini Tour
This will a series of 9 hole events – aimed at Juniors under 12 who don’t have handicaps yet but enjoy playing golf and want to experience playing in events. There will be various age categories – Under 12’s, Under 10’s, Under 8’s and a category for Juniors who are under 12 but have a handicap. These will be played from Yellow, Red and Blue pots and will have a relaxed atmosphere with a grand final being played where all prizes will be presented.
