Please can you help the Taunton & Pickeridge Junior Section?
Due to the success of last years raffle for the Junior Captains Texas Scramble event to raise money for the section to fund coaching/training etc we are looking to do the same again.
We are currently writing to local companies to ask if they can help with donations/prizes now in preparation of the draw in April.
Last year we received many prizes including a night at a top hotel, golf lesson, drinks, hampers, new golf accessories, meal at a local pub, Hestercombe gardens tickets, golf 4 balls, golf balls, etc and raised over £500 which was a great effort and we hope that this year we can beat that.
The list of prizes with the company/individual is noted as soon as we receive the details and stays on the Junior website, Facebook page and Twitter updates until the end of the year.
So as a section may we ask for your help with prizes?
• Perhaps a free meal at the club?
• A free lesson?
• A free round of golf?
• A free bottle of something.
• Unwanted new golf equipment
• Unwanted new golf accessories
• Unwanted new items
• Anything new that has a value
• A service to offer?
If you have any other ideas please let the section know. Can Somerset cricketers or the rugby club help?
• Somerset signed shirt?
• Play a few holes of golf with the cricketers?
• Free pass to a match?
I know you are all great supporters of the Juniors and we would be very grateful for any help at all, please feel free to email the team to discuss the content of the post if required.
Kind regards Junior section Team

We have decided to split the Juniors who compete in the monthly short game challenge into 2 sections, as shown below. It is clear that the sessions are improving the all round short game of the Juniors, and we want this to continue, so the first set of Players will play as before the same format for 4 salvers at the end of the season. The second section the same format and salvers for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. So if I may say this means that for instance Joe & Monty play they are now competing against each other and the others in the group so therefore not against Say Charlie & Bailey.
I do hope by doing this we will see all of you continue to play and enjoy coming along and competing and even encourage more of the other T&P Juniors to take part.
Please note all of the scores so far will remain in place…
Section 1 = Charlie, Bailey, James, George, Dan, Tom b , Finn, Joe Woodhead, Laura, Kobe, Alfie, Jack lewis, Luke , Max, Toby, Matthew Harrison, etc
Section 2= Joe Criddle, Monty, William Neale, Benjamin Newman, Pierre Clifford, James Pellow, Tomas Rew, Lucy Stevenson, and any of the Fox cubs that Val or Chris feel are ready to take part?
Don’t forget you pick the best 3 from the whole season ….
THE COMPETITION IS OPEN TO ALL TAUNTON & PICKERIDGE JUNIORS AND STARTED IN MARCH AND WILL FINISH IN SEPTEMBER AND IS FREE!
EACH EVENT TAKES PLACE ONCE A MONTH ON A SATURDAY (DATES ON FACEBOOK & WEBSITE) AND STARTS AT 1.30PM AND LASTS FOR UPTO 2 HOURS.
ALL OF THE EVENTS ARE BASED ON PUTTING & CHIPPING & BUNKER PLAY.
EACH EVENT IS OVER 18 HOLES ON THE PRACTICE AREA GREENS AND ARE PLAYED AS PAR 3`S USING STABLEFORD SCORING.
