Cambridgeshire’s finest young golfers proved the future of the sport in the county is bright by showcasing their skills at Ely City Golf Club’s Junior Open Day.

Golf prodigies from around the region – including current county champion and last year’s winner Jade Guest – teed off in a range of age groups at the city club, and Guest showed why she is the best around by easing to victory once again in the Scratch Trophy.

Gog Magog Golf Club member Guest sealed success in the main event of the day with a handicap of one, with Ely City starlet Jacob Gamble finishing in second with 78.

King’s Ely school student and Ely member Jason Segall scooped the prize in the Low Handicap Nett division with a score of 68, while fellow club member Chloe Ashman came just behind with a respectable score of 73.

Ely grabbed another win through Ben Dickens in the Middle Handicap division, with William Kibbler of Swaffham Golf Club the runner-up.

Austin Wang also impressed in the 7-11 age category with his winning score of 57 stableford points. Rohan Neat, who scored 40, came second.

Co-ordinator at Ely City golf club, Mark Smith, said the open day was a big success. He said: “My highlight was seeing a competition that attracted 26 players, including some of the best junior golfers in Cambridgeshire as well as beginners playing their first 18-hole tournament.”
