Call to arms for Young Cup experience

Norfolk golf's version of the generation game gets under way soon with organisers hoping for a bumper entry in the Young Cup.

The event is a Norfolk Ladies County Golf Association competition for ladies and girls in an inter-club knockout foursomes format.

Organisers are trying to encourage as many girls with a CONGU handicap as possible to find an adult partner and enter. It is a good opportunity for the girls to experience a different type of competition and play on different courses and entry is free. High or low handicap, the event gives some of the newer girls their first taste of 18 holes matchplay in a fun way and also gives the lower handicaps more foursomes practice.

The only two restrictions are that the girl and the lady need to be from the same club and both need to have a CONGU handicap. Details on how to enter are available on the NLCGA website – www.norfolkladiesgolf.co.uk. The closing date is Sunday, March 25.

Last year's event was very successful, with 18 pairs taking part. Amelia Williamson and her mum Tracey from Royal Cromer beat Ellen Astbury-Dennis and Sally Benton from Eaton in a closely fought final played at Bawburgh.
