We are taking the British Junior Golf Tour to Leatherhead Golf Club for the 11-12 and the Junior Open categories.
Ancient oak trees line the fairways whilst the well-guarded, subtly contoured greens are regarded as being amongst the best in Surrey. Equipped with 18 holes, putting green, advanced coaching studios, open range practice area and short game zone. With over 100 years of golfing history, you’ll find nothing less than legendary excellence at The Leatherhead Club.

Please ensure that you check the link again prior to the event on Sunday 16th August, as there WILL be updates to the start sheets.
This is to be undertaken on the driving range, putting green or practice facilities that the club may have. Players are not allowed to warm up on the course before the event.
Players are permitted one caddie to assist them on the course; they are there to help with pace of play by carrying the bag, handing clubs and raking bunkers, etc.
Coaching is not permitted, lining up is not permitted, and NO assistance may be given on the green.
Caddies are to stay off the greens at all times.
Pace of Play
This is a very important aspect of the game and one that we are constantly monitoring at events!
9 holes should take no longer than 2 – 2 1/4 hours and 18 holes no longer than 4 – 4 1/2 hours.
It is a requirement that all groups keep pace with the preceding group, NOT just keep ahead of the group behind!
‘Play-ready golf’ – be prepared to play before it’s your turn, walk between shots at a good pace, leave the green once you have finished a hole and mark your card on the next tee.
Unless there is a mitigating circumstance, i.e. a ruling is required (in which case the group behind should be called through), slow play will be monitored and penalised in the usual way. If a group does not finish within 15 minutes of the group in front, a penalty of 2 strokes will be added to all players in the group. We will be very strict on this rule in 2020, so caddies and players, please encourage your playing partners to play at the recommended speed.
All events are played using standard R&A strokeplay rules. It is a player’s and caddie’s responsibility to learn the rules of golf, and penalties will be applied if rules are broken.
