The Junior Week of Golf teed off last week with the first round at Murrumbidgee Country Club. Gail Goiser (JPO),  Barry Morgan (President of the ACT Monaro DGA) and Sue Harrison (JPO CSGA) were in attendance to greet the field and get them underway.

This event, along with the Spring Junior Week of Golf is a long-standing tournament, which has been enjoyed by junior golfers in our region for approximately 15 years.  This year saw a slight increase in numbers, with approximately 60 boys and girls involved.  The tournament caters for all age groups both GA handicap and those without handicaps.  The youngest this year to play in the handicap division were 9 year olds and 7 year olds in the sub-junior division. The ACT Monaro DGA and the CSGA provide daily and overall prizes.  The DGA also provide a bus for transport to Yass Golf Club on Day 3.

After a frosty start to all four days, the weather was perfect for good scoring.
