At a ceremony last night, May 28th 2012, the Freshwater Bay Golf Club Junior Team and team organiser Steve Orchard were presented with their new team shirts for 2012 competitions. The presentation was made by myself, seen in the photo on the right and Club Captain Ray Cook, on the left. We have sponsored the Juniors since 2009. The financial package provides the smart, identifiable club shirts, as well as enabling the team to compete in competitions both on the Isle of Wight and the UK mainland.
“We are proud to sponsor the Junior team. As well as providing them with an enjoyable sport to play in the open air, golf also requires focus, concentration and dedication and this will equip them with valuable skills for the future. The sport is also very strong on etiquette, so it often helps to shape the way they present themselves away from the golf course”.
The season has already got off to a great start, with the Juniors winning their first match at home to Newport – three and half to a half.
