Who can play Darling Downs Junior League?
The junior league events are open to all boys and girls aged between 5 and 17 years old who have reached a minimum standard of golf skill to enable them to enjoy playing 6 or more holes of golf.
Ideally, children should be of a standard that enables them to make regular contact with the ball (not too many “air swings”) and have a basic understanding of the safety aspects of golf (e.g. not walking too close or in front of other players making a swing).
How many holes do the kids play?
At this time competitions are offered in the following divisions:
6 holes - various Par 5s, Par 4s and Par 3s playing from temporary markers in pairs (ambrose) matchplay.
9 holes - various Par 5s, Par 4s and Par 3s playing from temporary markers in singles matchplay.
18 holes - played from designated Men's and Women's tee blocks in single matchplay.
Points can be earned for the club each time a player participates. At the end of the year, the club with the highest average points per player wins. Individual prizes will be awarded each month for player performance.
