Hi I’m Beth, I am 16 years old and I am currently Junior Captain. I have been a Member now at Barton for 5 years. I first got into golf by going down on the practice ground with my dad one day after school. I have now lowered my handicap to 23. I struggled getting back into golf at the beginning of this year, as I took about an eight month break, but after walking around a few times with my dad and grandad I realised how much I missed and enjoyed the game. I played my first competition in 2018. I remember being very nervous for my first junior competition but the other Juniors and Organisers made me feel very welcome.
I would like to thank all the Junior Organisers and helpers that have made me and the other Juniors feel very welcome over the years. Without them the Junior Section would not be able to function. In my role as Captain I will do my best to welcome all new and existing Junior Members, and help out where I can. It would be great to see some new Junior Members taking part in the competitions.
Hi I’m Sophie, I am 16 years old, studying A-levels at Highcliffe Sixth Form, and I am currently Junior Vice Captain.
I have been a member at Barton since 2020. My grandad first got me into golf in the summer of 2019 by taking me to the professionals' Saturday morning lessons. I would like to thank the pros and all the Junior organisers for supporting and encouraging me to play.
I played my first competition in 2021 with a handicap of 45.0 and over the past 2 years I have got it down to 24.0.
I am excited to take on the role of Junior Vice Captain and will do my best to help the Junior section as much as I can.
