Results of the 2016 Junior Team Championship

The ERUGC Junior Team Championship was one of four competitions incorporated into Driffield's Junior Open held on Thursday 2nd June 2016. The others being the Junior Open itself, the East Riding Alliance Weston Cup and a Daily Telegraph Qualifier.


The day attracted an entry of fifty U18s with the winners of the Junior Team event being Hornsea with an excellent three man nett score of 208, two under par. Defending champions Hull had to settle for the runner up slot six shots off the pace.


The counting scores for Hornsea were a 67 by thirteen year old Albert Anderson (19), a 69 from thirteen year old Will Marshall (20) and last but not least a 72 by Anderson's twelve year old brother Harry (24).


Hornsea now go forward to represent the ERUGC in the Yorkshire Junior Team Club Championship at Middlesbrough (Brass Castle) Golf Club on 10th July. Well done lads.


A note from John Nicholson, organiser of the event:


Only eight of the Union's twenty four clubs were represented in the Junior Team Championship. Whilst some of these clubs had multiple team entries it is disappointing and has to be a concern for the future of golf that two thirds of the member clubs had no representation in the event.
