Junior Captain 2018/19

Junior Captain Profile

Josh Caffyn - Handicap 3
Age 16.

Josh started his golf at the Club’s Saturday morning coaching sessions at the age of 7. At that time his first love was football and he quickly attracted the interest of the scouts at Bournemouth FC. At the age of 12, however, he switched his focus to golf and competed with growing success in the club’s Junior Section competitions. By the age of 13 he had reduced his handicap to 18 and was playing regularly in the Men’s events, winning his first Major Club Competition, The Clarke Trophy, in 2016. His prowess did not go unnoticed by the County Golf Coaches and he has since represented Hampshire in Inter County matches at U14, U16 & U18 levels. In 2018 Josh added The Child Cup and The Scratch Knockout Cup to his growing list of Major Club Honours.
