Taunton and Pickeridge Golf Club junior member Seb Childs had the thrill of his young when he had his first hole in one at the 10th last weekend.

The 11-year-old has been a member at T&P for three years and since joining has worked hard at his game.

He is out on the course every weekend come rain or shine and and is currently playing off a handicap of 20.4.

Seb won the The Joan Markham Shield at the end of the 2023 season for being the Most Improved Junior of the Year.

The 2024 Somerset Schools’ Golf Association Championship will be taking place at Weston-super Mare Golf Club on Wednesday 20th March.

The championship is open to all boys and girls at school in Somerset and every school in the county should have been sent an entry. It is hoped that members of the junior section will want to get their schools involved by securing places to play in the competition.

Players compete for their school and have the chance to represent England Schools against Scotland and Wales Schools later in the year, so its a great opportunity for all young golfers.

The organiser of the Championship Day at Weston super Mare on 20th March is Stuart Wells from the Somerset Schools’ Golf Association so for further information and how to enter please contact him by calling him on 01458 444201 or emailing wells.smillfieldschool.com
