The cost to enter is £9 per event for Futures and Next Gen Tour players,  £7 in the uncompetitive New2Golf category. The full entry fee must be paid when booking. 

Below you will find descriptions of all three tour categories, which will give you an indication of which is appropriate for your child.  Please take the time to read through all the info on this page before booking.




The Futures Tour was originally established to provide boys and girls (under 14yrs old) the opportunity to advance their golf skills and knowledge of the game through age appropriate 9-hole competition at a local level. Our mission is to help children have fun learning the game of golf at an early age, make friends through golf and to encourage family interaction that builds lasting memories. There are adapted golf rules to make the game more enjoyable and the juniors play from shortened tees. 

Please note that caddies are allowed for players in the Under 10/U9/U8 Futures Tour groups. Under 11 and older on the Futures Tour, caddies are NOT allowed.




We have recently started offering a non - competitive option for newer players called 'New2Golf'. This is for beginners (U14) who are not yet wanting to be part of the main competitions. This is ideal for young players who have only recently started getting out on the course and want to 'have a go' in a more relaxed way, before entering a competitive Futures Tour age category. Scores will not be shared, no trophy to be won, however players can move up to a Futures Tour Order of Merit category later in the season if they wish. The juniors play from shortened tees and there is no pressure to complete all 9 holes. Caddies are allowed.




The NextGen Tour is for the more experienced juniors under the age of 14 - thoses with a WHS handicap index of 40 and below, who want to participate in 9-hole events. The main prize is awarded for Nett results. These qualifying stableford events run ahead of the Futures Tour, utilising the same dates and venues. It is the aim of this Tour to introduce juniors to more formal golf where they will mark their own scorecards and be more independent on the golf course. Caddies are not allowed. We suggest that the juniors in the Next Gen events should understand how a stableford works. This is a great opportunity to practise both your golf skills and independent card marking! 

To enter the 2024 tour... 

The link below enables you to book onto multiple events all at once. Alternatively, the individual events are bookable via the online booking page. If your child doesn't yet have a CDH number (issued when given their first official handicap) then there is no requirement to enter it.

The cut off point for entry to each event is 7 days beforehand. Booking later than this will not guarentee you entry.
