Lincoln Golf Club’s junior captain brought a county title back to his home course, after a narrow win at Woodhall Spa.

Aaron Kay entered the regional event, open to all clubs in Lincolnshire, and shot 71 to pick up the President’s Trophy by a single shot.

He was presented with the trophy by county president David Brotherton.

Lincoln are hoping that a successful junior coaching campaign will lead to more triumphs like Kay’s.

The ‘Tri Golf’ series, delivered for Ingham School by the club’s Phil Mason, proved very popular with the youngsters.

Additional schemes are in the pipeline for other local areas, and the club have also launched their own in-house junior coaching.

Sessions have been arranged at 2pm on Sunday 21st September, 12th October and 19th October.

Each session will last for an hour and the total cost for the four weeks is £12 per person.

Please book via the pro shop on 01427 718273.

The sessions will look at hitting with a driver, bunkers and chipping, pitching and putting and course etiquette and rules.

Any of the younger junior or academy members who wish to play on the course to get a further feel for the game can do so with some of the junior organisers.

The format for play will be flexible, from playing a few holes off the red tees, or from 150 yard markers depending on who and how many turn up.

Recently the 2013 club captains, David and Penny Lendon, were invited to the 10th National Music Festival organised by the Charity Music for Youth (MFY) in Birmingham.

They chose this occasion to make the final donation to MFY, one of their two captains’ charities for last year.

Lincoln Golf Club’s donation was gratefully acknowledged in the programme.

The past captains will also be presenting a similar cheque to Bob Neilans, chairman of the board of trustees at St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice.

Around £10,000 has been raised in the past year from the support of members and staff of Lincoln Golf Club, visiting players, guests and sponsors.
