Junior Section Organisation
Junior Development Organiser
Ed is the Junior Section representative on both the Club Committee and the Handicap & Competitions Committee and is responsible to the Men’s Captain for the smooth running of the section. Ed’s primary task is to liaise with entry level junior golfers and their families at the Saturday morning training sessions, providing information and a friendly face as a focal point for any questions that might be raised. Ed actively encourages youngsters to get out on to the golf course as early as possible, attain a handicap, develop their full potential and grow their enjoyment of the game. Ed is responsible for the selection of the teams to play in the Hampshire Junior Academy League (HJAL) and shares new membership interview duties with Tim Waite.
Junior Competition Organiser
I joined Barton-on-Sea over 20 years ago and have worn many ‘hats’, including Social Committee Organiser, Ladies’ Treasurer, Stoneham Team Captain, as well as 10 years on the Ladies’ Committee, but the greatest honour was being chosen to become Ladies’ Captain for the Ladies Centenary Year in 2011. We held many extra events to celebrate it throughout the year - it was hard work but worth it. I love my golf and really enjoy seeing others excel at it.
I was delighted to be asked to help with the Junior Section alongside Ed, JD, Jon and the Professionals. It’s been great fun and I have enjoyed getting to know our young players and seeing them progress. It’s a great section to be part of. Thanks for asking me!

He will liaise with the Junior Section Organisers to ensure the timely posting of competition sign-up sheets, updating website content, Competition Results, Order of Merit, act as Junior Press Officer, provide the first line of contact for all external and internal communications, and compile / distribute regular news sheets to parents and children.
