ENTRIES are open for the 34th Hills Wiltshire Junior Golf Championship, which will take place at Broome Manor Golf Club on Wednesday, August 22.

Max Wrixon, from Tidworth Garrison, will return to defend the title he won last year, aged just 15, when carding an impressive gross 74 to win the event.

The competition, which is sponsored by The Hills Group and run in conjunction with Wiltshire Golf, is open to boys and girls up to 18 years old.

Those with CONGU competition handicaps (28 for boys and 36 for girls) will play the 18-hole course in a medal format.

Those aged under 10 years without CONGU handicaps are able to compete over a nine-hole short course.

Entry fees, which include a meal, are £10 per player.

Prizes will be awarded for each age group including vouchers for gross and net scores for entrants in the 18-hole medal.

Overall boys’ and girls’ gross score winners will receive trophies together with a trophy for best nett overall.

Entries close on Friday, August 17 and can be made via the Wiltshire Golf website wiltshiregolf.org or The Hills Group website hills-group.co.uk.
